Dane Byers

Associate Financial Advisor

It was hockey that brought Dane Byers to northern Saskatchewan and now you can’t keep him away.

Shannon Briske and Byron Briske are pleased to welcome Dane Byers to the Briske Financial Group and a career serving the people of Prince Albert and surrounding communities. With a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Salford in Manchester, England, Dane brings a global perspective to local wealth management.

Born in Nipawin, Saskatchewan, Dane moved to Prince Albert as a young man to play Midget AAA hockey with the Prince Albert Mintos. A year later, he started a four-year stint with the Prince Albert Raiders before turning pro in 2005.

Although his hockey career took him across North America and Europe, Dane’s love for northern Saskatchewan remained strong. In 2007, he purchased a home at Christopher Lake where he spent every off-season with his wife, Ashley, and his three sons, Boston, Beckham and Beau.

Now Dane is here to stay. After all, in his own words, “With world class golfing, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking and camping, and the best people in the world, how could I raise my family anywhere else!”

In addition to bringing the integrated wealth management services of the Briske Financial Group to Prince Albert, Dane serves on the Prince Albert Raider Alumni Committee, Chamber of Commerce, and The Environmental Committee at Christopher Lake. He’s also looking forward to being on the Prince Albert Raider Board of Directors.
