I still love to be active in sports - hockey, flag football, exercise. My passion is my family. Swimming lessons, gymnastics, and all kinds of activities that keep me busy with them.
This was a family business. It was not what I was expecting to get into, but glad I did and wish I had sooner. My education was in Kinesiology. I was in Nova Scotia for my undergrad and London, Ontario for my Masters. After I finished my Masters I decided I wanted to move back home (Cambridge) and get into the family business. I had worked there my whole life during summer and holidays so it was comfortable.
There is great opportunity in this field. Not a lot of people have knowledge in this field. One of the biggest challenges we have is finding people with fluid power knowledge. Get in and you'll be needed.
Change motivates me. Everyday is a different and everyday a new opportunity presents itself to better our business, our industry, and me personally.
It is my job to make sure each of our operations is running effectively and efficiently. I make sure that employees are getting the training they need. I also work with others as we deal with customer complaints or issues, customer contracts, and vendor negotiations. I have a team of Operations Managers that all deal with the day-to-day business at their location. My job is to take care of the corporate culture and big-picture. One of the best aspects of my job is creating new business opportunities through either new markets or products.
