Navigating Success, Inspiring Growth

A fantail turns the windmill cap, steering the main sails directly into the wind. Every time the wind changes direction, a fantail realigns the main sails so that they always work at full efficiency to produce maximum power.

Making a Difference in the World

Fantail Services mirrors the adaptability of the fantail, we offer purpose and direction to businesses through leadership development and eco-friendly products.

Meet Our Founders

Our journey began when a successful oil and gas Canadian in Texas, met a retired Navy Fleet Master Chief & former Top Gun instructor. We quickly discovered that the common reason for our success, was the development and betterment of the individuals we manage. The company Fantail Services was soon formed.


We believe that leaders of an organization must continue to inspire, influence, and develop high-quality and high-performing leaders and teams through a culture of continuous learning.

Investing in personal development builds a more engaged and motivated workforce, leading to higher productivity and job satisfaction. This helps create a culture of learning, leading to better business performance, safety, and environmental sustainability.
