Managing Director, Edmonton


My background has been in Sales & Operations in the B2B (Business to Business) space, more specifically Industrial Distribution supply.  I have spent 25 years in various roles with over 15+ years in leadership spanning across Canada.  During this time I have had the opportunity to work on cross border (USA-CDA) contract negotiations with property management, food & beverage, manufacturing and Professional Services organizations ultimately executing against those contractual commitments at a local level.  Primarily the National Account customers I have had the most responsibility & exposure with the last number of years span across multiple sectors including Oil & Gas, Utilities, Construction, Forestry, Mining and Transportation.   Previously, the operational responsibility I have was managing the day to day operations of our branch network in Alberta with full P&L responsibility, customer service, inventory, sales and operations including the expansion, retraction or relocation of branches.
