Company History

Pisces was founded by Kes Morton in 2017 after managing more than $170 million CAD over 15 years of ocean research projects.  There were too many projects operating inefficiently, often because the project did not necessitate a full time project manager. As a result, people were devoting large amounts of time to something they didn’t like doing – project management. Pisces believes that people do their best work when on work they enjoy – and so Pisces was founded to enable people to do the things they love – and outsource their research project management needs to the experts at Pisces.


Pisces is fully owned and run by Kes Morton, an experienced manager, scientist, and communicator, with over 15 years of management and research experience in industry, academia, and government. Kes has a PhD in Marine Ecology, a Project Management Professional certification, and a Certificate in Financial Management.
