After graduating from Georgia State University in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, majoring in finance, Keezer returned to his hometown of Montreal and started his first company providing measurement and control platforms for the pulp and paper industry.

Passionate about innovation, politics and his family, Keezer spends the majority of his time working to build Grindstone’s prospects in keeping with the goal of helping companies do business easier.
