First job in the business? Retail sales rep for Wm. M. Dunne & Associates calling on A&P and Safeway Stores in Ontario…yes, Safeway Stores in Ontario!
What do you like best about the industry? For such a large industry, it is a small community of people, together, trying to provide good quality food and packaged goods products to Canadian consumers.
What can the industry do better? Better collaboration between suppliers and retailers…stop focusing so much on “the Buy” and put more focus on “the Sell” in an effort to provide good quality food and packaged goods to Canadian consumers.
A memorable career moment? Becoming president of a company for the first time; it was a turnaround opportunity for the business, and the satisfaction when the team and I accomplished what we set out to do was very rewarding.
