started his career in construction at the age of 16 in 1991 when he joined the
family company. This allowed him to be involved in every aspect of the company
and gain a lot of experience. He spent 20 years as a general contractor and
specialized in ICF construction. He needed a change, so after a brief experience
working for a NUDURA distributor, NUDURA reached out and offered him the role
of Sales Manager for Quebec. A year and a half later he was also overseeing the
Maritimes, and 5 years later he became Director of Sales for Canada, and is
loving every minute of it. He has the privilege of leading a team of dedicated
and experienced individuals that he relies on 100%.
