Great People Make Great Companies

28 Jun

I love this industry… I love this company… and I love its people. They’re more than co-workers… bordering on siblings…

This week we held a quickie cake party for Roy Jeffers who’s moving into semi-retirement after helping his partner, Mike Willoughby, build Ontario’s most trusted distributor of plastic sheet, rod, & tube. From reading financial statements all day to some serious fishing and golf – gotta love it. At the same time we celebrated Mike’s 60th birthday with a monster cake.

Last week the entire sales team, all 19 of us, headed downtown Toronto for dinner and then shared a night of laughs with about 15,000 others at a Russel Peter’s concert.

Mike and Roy have instilled in us from the beginning that this business is about people and it starts with building a family of people who genuinely enjoy working together.

I think they’ve succeeded…
