Meet the Team
Hi, my name is Carl Young, President and founder of PlanetCom Inc. My passion is finding efficient and effective solutions for any computer-related quandary a client can throw my way, and trust me when I say I have seen them all! The success and growth of this company is a direct result of countless hours of hard work, tenacity, and an unwavering team of professionals that are more than willing to do the same. My valued time outside of the office is spent on the rewarding challenge of being a full-time husband and father.
Hello! My name is Kristy Young. My role at PlanetCom revolves around people and processes. Outside of work I am a busy wife, mom and athlete. I worked previously as a registered nurse and obtained my BScN degree from the U of A. Currently, I am responsible for the “health” of PlanetCom. I spend my days solving problems with useful and creative solutions. The environment here allows me to explore new and innovative approaches every day which keeps me busy and very motivated. My other strength is support and I try every day to find ways to assist each staff member in enjoying their time with us.
Hi, my name is Amber Vander Meulen. I grew up in a rural town north of Edmonton. I moved to Edmonton to attend The King’s University College, where I obtained a 4 year BSc in Biology.

Hello, my name is Bev Semeniuk and I am the accountant and keeper of the books here at PlanetCom. I work behind the scenes to ensure the inner workings of the company run smoothly and efficiently.

Hi, my name is Matthew Johnson. I grew up in the artistic landscapes of Gibsons, BC. Some say that I appear on high value stamps in Sweden, and that I can catch fish with my tongue. Tales and legends have been written about my tall stature and massive appetite. During the late hours of the weekend you can find me entertaining the crowds at the local karaoke place.
I’ve dealt with clients in the past such as Boeing International, Bank of America, Dell, NASA and have helped ramp up new lines of business at Dell Computers. I enjoy solving problems as well as assisting and meeting new people on a day to day basis. I regularly deal with restricted information and work hard to safeguard our customers’ data with the highest regard.

As an obtainer of rare antiquities, I am enthusiastic about anything made in the ‘30s – ‘40s.
