In the words of Rebel.ca marketing director Taryn Manias, Francis is the guy “doing the real gritty work” that’s fuelled the firm’s recent run of success.
As COO, Francis oversees all of Rebel.ca’s business operations. Under his steady guidance, the company has steadily increased its subscriber base and has achieved a domain renewal rate of 89 per cent.

Specializing in metal fabrication, Dymech has expanded its project offerings over the years, adding some creative business verticals.
Meanwhile, the company has also gained a strong reputation as an employee-friendly enterprise – last year, Rebel.ca was named one of the country’s top workplaces by Toronto-based Best Places to Work Canada, thanks in part to initiatives Francis spearheaded such as regular employee happy hours, a tradition that’s continued during the pandemic via Zoom.
When he’s not focusing on his thriving tech career, Francis enjoys coaching hockey and soccer and serves on the board of directors of the Downtown Rideau BIA.
