Glen H McKay
Glen McKay is a business leader and entrepreneur who has significant experience leading businesses in mining, finance, resource exploration and development, among other industries.


Based in Newfoundland and Labrador and Alberta, Glen McKay started work with humble beginnings: as a deckhand in the Newfoundland fishery. But he soon started working in business development and as a branch manager at Minpaco in St. John’s.

Glen founded his first company, MRO Supplies Ltd., in 1978. MRO Supplies provided specialized equipment for several industries, including mining, quarrying, heavy construction, pulp and paper, forestry and fisheries. He served as president of MRO Supplies Ltd. for over 10 years and eventually sold the company to Stellar Industrial in 1989.

In 1985, Glen founded Newfoundland Hard-Rok Inc., an explosives manufacturer with two manufacturing plants on the Island of Newfoundland that also provides drilling and blasting services to the mining, quarrying and heavy construction industries. Glen continues as the chair of Newfoundland Hard-Rok’s board of directors and manages the firm’s finances and administration on a day-to-day basis.

Under Glen’s management, Newfoundland Hard-Rok Inc. formed a wholly owned subsidiary called Dyno Nobel Labrador Inc. in 2004 and a second wholly owned subsidiary Dyno Nobel Baffin Island Inc. in 2013.

Glen is also the co-founder of Cornerstone Capital Resources, a mining company which acquired the Cascabel gold and copper project in Ecuador in 2011. During his tenure as President, Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chair, Cornerstone’s resource exploration was expanded beyond Newfoundland and Labrador to Ecuador and Chile, with Glen earning recognition for leading the company’s growth.
