OUR FOUNDERS

Robert Quinnell and David Keeler opened Provide in 2007 as a showcase for some of the iconic and artistic designs they’d
discovered traveling the world. The duo share with customers treasures sourced internationally, sometimes serendipitously,
which conveniently obliges them to continue globe trotting in search of more. 

ROBERT QUINNELL 
Originally from Toronto, now a quintessential Vancouverite, Robert previously worked in fashion sales then management,
which ignited his entrepreneurial spirit. Today, the sweet spot for Robert is matching unique creations from independent
designers with clients seeking to surround themselves with all things exquisite. 

DAVID KEELER
David was born in Alberta with a wanderlust that allured him to live in Montreal, San Francisco, New York (where he attended
Parsons School of Design) then Vancouver. These cities and experiences refined his natural aesthetic, which he applied in
advertising and design for many years prior to turning his talent to Provide.
