I value a clean, organized environment at work and at home. I like to live and eat clean, too! I try to get the whole office here at Armstrong into this mindset – healthy, active and organized means a positive work environment. Some people here might say I’m a fitness activist; I think ‘fitness enthusiast’ is more apt. A business is about its people and a healthy team means an energized workplace…I definitely strive to inspire these values at Armstrong.
I started Armstrong Moving as a young Chartered Accountant. I realized one of my greatest skills was surrounding myself with the right people. I see team building as the ultimate opportunity to improve our service offerings and elicit the best experience for all our customers. I’m really lucky – I’m surrounded by great people at Armstrong, and at the family cottage with my wife and two daughters.
I’ve been in the moving business for over 20 years and I find being a ‘good cop’ works best. It’s who I am – at home and at work. With twins and two dogs, it’s not always the most efficient route, but it’s always worked for me.
At Armstrong, I’m the president and an owner. I hold a Bachelor of Commerce, but I’d say my personality is my greatest strength. I’m a people person; I have to be! In addition to the day-to-day at Armstrong, I also sit on the Board of Directors for United Van Lines. The moving business is an incredibly personal one – I try my best to understand all the challenges facing professionals relocating their families to different areas of the globe and help shape our business to reflect their needs. I take time off from time to time too…usually to spend time with my family at the cottage (and do a little snowmobiling).
Hockey is my sport – I love hitting the ice every winter! I live an active lifestyle and team sports are one of my strengths. I carry these values over to my business…team building is where I excel! There’s nothing more satisfying than being a part of a winning team. As a ten-year member of the FIDI Academy Training Team, I’ve been contributing to winning teams for quite a while.
Armstrong Moving is definitely home to a winning team…it’s why I became one of the owners! I’ve been in the moving business for over 20 years; for me, the only team that could give Armstrong a run for its money is my family…my wife, my son and daughter.
