Genesis QMS, The Leadership Team

Jim Matheson

 President and Founder

Jim Matheson has managed QCQA and NDT inspections in the upstream oil and gas industry for over 20 years. Early on, Jim realized that paper, spreadsheets, filing cabinets, banker boxes, and multiple drives were ineffective for properly managing a company’s asset and integrity requirements.

Jim decided to solve that problem by developing an easy-to-use solution that would control all data related to QCQA, wherever and whenever needed, with efficiency and proficiency. That solution is Genesis QMS. His highest priority is ensuring consistent and reliable data reporting. He believes this is essential for a company to operate successfully and realize a good return on investment.

Jim and his partner, Rob Kowal, are dedicated to evolving the Genesis QMS platform to meet the ever-changing needs of their clients.

In his free time, Jim indulges his passion for fly fishing. He enjoys casting a dry fly to rising Brown trout on the Big Horn and Missouri rivers. Or he may be plying the Stillwaters of the Cariboo and Kamloops in search of trophy Pennask and Horsefly Rainbow trout. If Jim is not in either of those locations, he is probably swinging flies for steelhead on the Skeena and its tributaries.

Rob Kowal

Partner and Director of Software Management

Rob Kowal has over 20 years of experience designing, architecting, and delivering large-scale applications. Rob started his career developing research software for a university biology professor. He then became a key member and developer of engineering project management systems.
Rob was an integral contributor to the design and development of an Energy Trading and Risk Management (ETRM) application that has been used and sold throughout North America. His success with that system led him to spend much of his career specializing in designing, managing and implementing several other ETRM solutions. 
Always keen to expand his knowledge, Rob jumped at the opportunity to apply his skills to a new venture and joined Jim as a partner at Genesis QMS in 2017. He is passionate about developing applications that have simple, intuitive, and consistent design interfaces and is focused on ensuring his vision is reflected in all of the company’s solutions.
Rob’s free time is spent outdoors, usually in the mountains, hiking, mountain biking, road biking, or back-country snowboarding. In addition, Rob is an accomplished triathlete and regularly participates in competitions.
