I’ve been a senior marketer in several organizations so I have been in my customer’s shoes. I have a keen eye for brands and know how to leverage buyer’s budgets. I was fortunate to begin my work in the corporate branded product business with Roots. Since 1999 I have served corporate customers across Western Canada and the U.S.
I have seen a tremendous shift in the business in the past twelve years. Customers need more help and they need the help very quickly. In 1999 we used to take an order for 150 logo’d sweatshirts and actual MAKE the sweatshirts (cut & sew) then ship them six weeks later. To be relevant to today’s corporate buyer that process must complete in 5-10 business days.
In the community I volunteer as Chair of Big Brothers Vancouver which provides mentorship to youth. In the past I have Chaired the board at mental health non-profit Open Door Group and volunteered for the Canadian Olympic Committee Golf Tournament which raises significant funds for Canadian Olympians. I whole-heartedly believe that a successful business person must engage in the community beyond business matters and give back where possible.
