Darren Bondar

Darren Bondar CEO | "Ranger of Time"

Born in Saskatoon and raised in Calgary, Darren Bondar has always held an entrepreneurial spirit. As his family was in the furniture business for over 60 years, Darren grew up working alongside his grandfather on the sales floor while he developed his entrepreneurial skills. Earning his undergraduate degree at the University of Western Ontario and an MBA at the University of Alberta, Darren honed his skills providing a strong foundation to launch his own venture.

Bondar offers over 15 years of experience in the retail industry from WATCH IT! and personal business skills. Bondar’s passion for the industry and pride in his business has led him to solidify WATCH IT! as the destination for a pair of quality and fashionable sunglasses and watches in the country. With this natural mastery of business, it was fitting that Bondar received both the prestigious Henry Singer Award for 'Outstanding Alumni with a Career in Retailing' in 2009, and was awarded the 'Top Franchises of 2011' by the Canadian Franchise Association. Darren Bondar was also selected to the 2010 Class of Avenue Edmonton magazine’s 'Top 40 Under 40' awards.
