Degree: Business Administration - Marketing

My career has involved both automotive and industrial sales. I have experienced both senior sales and sales management positions. In 2003, I decided to start my own company and have never looked back. I currently represent a number of companies in California, Illinois, and in the Toronto area. With my 30 years in the metal fabrication industry, I have developed a strong customer base.
I have many great memories from my time at Sheridan. I would say playing hockey with Dave’s Demons was a great time. Dave Tinker was a great coach, and teacher. We had a lot of fun, and we did learn something from time to time! Dave is also a long time friend, and we continue to get together on a regular basis. I feel he has had the most impact on my career.
My advice to Sheridan students is to follow your path to passion –- it’s the key to personal fulfillment and economic success. Today’s markets continue to change at a very rapid pace; however, there has never been a time that provides so much opportunity.
On a personal note I have been married for 27 years to my wife Lynn, and have two daughters –– Megan, who goes to Brock University and is in third year, and Elise, who is at Waterloo in her second year. I have been very fortunate to have a strong, healthy family.
Current Occupation: Owner & President, B & L Sales Inc.
