Meet our Team

Andrew Roudny, 

Certified Master Electrician and Director of Operations

Andrew was born in Prague, grew up in Mississauga, and settled in Peterborough, where he founded Glenforest Electric. Andrew’s electrical and home automation expertise is widely known, and he has worked as an instructor at both Fleming and Durham colleges in the Schools of Skilled Trades and Renewable Technology.

He also has a degree in Computer Science and Economics, with experience managing the entire country-wide paging network maintenance system for Rogers Wireless – a background that comes in handy for the continuous innovations in the home automation industry.

When Andrew isn’t planning projects and leading his team of experienced electricians, he likes to work on his vintage go-kart project and play classical guitar. He’s serious about sports (he even coaches his son’s hockey and baseball teams) and a huge Formula 1 fan. Be sure to ask Andrew about his prized possession – a custom Senna goalie mask.

Taryn Roudny, Business Manager

Taryn was born and raised in Kingston, Ontario, and as the daughter of a restaurant owner, grew up around food and hospitality. She graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Latin American Studies and lived in both Spain and Costa Rica for a time. After a few years in the GTA, she and husband Andrew found their way to Peterborough.

These days, Taryn runs the business side of Glenforest Electric – on a typical day you’ll find her taking client calls, handling bookkeeping and invoicing, catering our meetings and training sessions, and managing all our social media, marketing and advertising.

When she’s off the clock, Taryn and son Nikolas are frequent patrons of The Boardwalk Board Game Lounge in downtown Peterborough. She also loves travel, hiking, good coffee and she’s an excellent cook.
