About Our Staff
Meet the staff of The Tent Guys! We are family-owned and operated to provide you the best equipment and service for all your events, large or small, in the Lloydminster AB/SK area.
George Quickstad - Owner/Operator
George began his journey in the event world when he purchased a tent in 1996 for a family anniversary. It wasn’t long before he realized his passion for the event industry and people began referring to him as "The Tent Guy." George embraced the name and has grown that one tent into a diversified event business. He is a hands-on leader who is often out with the crews leading installations and tear outs. George enjoys the relationships that he has built with customers over the years and looks forward to continuing those and building new relationships in the future.
Pamela Becotte - Office Manager/Event Coordinator
Pamela, George’s daughter, has been involved with many aspects of the business from an early age. Following University, Pam realized her flair and attention to detail in planning events and continued her education graduating with her Special Event Coordinating Certification with distinction from Lakeland College in 2007. That same year, Pam was chosen as a Future Leader of the Meetings Industry by MPI (Meeting Professionals International). As such she was awarded a spot at the 2007 IMEX Future Leaders Forum, which was held in conjunction with the MPI International Education Congress in Montreal, Quebec. Of the 30 students selected from across North America to attend this forum she was the only Canadian.
Pam has experience in a wide variety of events - including corporate events, weddings, tradeshows, and fundraising galas. Pam has been a secretary with the Lloydminster Heavy Oil Show since 2009 and is an active member of several community groups.
Joanne Quickstad - Bookkeeper
Joanne, George’s wife, is primarily behind the scenes. Joanne oversees the bookkeeping and is an integral part of our item prep team. She enjoys coming to event sites to support the set ups and events when she can. Joanne is also the head supervisor of our youngest members of The Tent Guy family, Quinn & Emery, Pam’s children, when they come to assist the team.
Steven Reeves - Crew Chief
Steven joined our team as a tent installer for the summer of 2013 and has developed into a crew chief. Steven enjoys the diversity of the events that he gets to be involved with and appreciates how every event is unique. He enjoys that he gets to be involved with the community with this position and enjoys meeting new people.
