About me

I was born/grew up in: I was born in Caledon East, Ontario, Canada. At the age of seven I moved to and grew up in Brampton, Ontario, Canada

I now live in: I now live in Woodbridge Ontario, Canada

I completed my training/education at: Diploma Business Administration, Seneca College,B.Com Human Resources, Ryerson University

What I do at work

My daily activities consist of reviewing reports to determine how I can best assist my team in achieving desired tasks/goals. I would suggest that science is a very important skill in order to be able to assess cause/effect in all scenarios. Engineering and science also provide excellent skill sets for problem solving, which is huge! Math and technology are very important to help make the right decision. The STEM model is exceptionally critical to making decisions on the floor, working on cars and in the office. Problems range from identifying hidden damage to vehicle structure, how to gain more efficiency in the operation, and can these results deliver a better client experience?

My career path is

I didn't plan on being in the collision repair industry. I planned to attend law school, but after graduation, quickly identified that my family's business needed my help. I took a lot of technical training which is where STEM experience helped out a lot. I had to adapt to the collision centre by using engineering, science and technology knowledge to assist in learning damage assessments and vehicle repairs. During my career I have had many failures that didn't go to plan. I overcame them by believing in myself, in the plan and used these failures as opportunities to become better. So far, everything has worked perfectly.

I am motivated by

For me, the motivation of work is when I see plans that have been developed, being competed because of the co-operation of the entire organization. When we earn best-in-class client satisfaction, it's because the whole team pulled together on every repair. When you measure performance and identify we are among the best, it's because everyone co-operated and executed the plan. These wins lead to success for all and that is the most motivating feeling ever.

How I affect people’s lives

My career is relevant because I am responsible for providing secure employment to my employees, and helping customers in their time of need. Most importantly, as a member of the collision repair industry, I ensure that people are driving safe vehicles after an accident.

Outside of work I

I have fun by going to the gym, playing with my dog and hanging out weekends with either my wife or the boys.

My advice to others
