BackgroundI bring with me an Honours Graduate of Mechanical Engineering Technology at Mohawk College and am also enrolled in evening studies at McMaster University in the Mechanical Engineering B. Tech Degree program.
ProfessionalMy Technical Sales and Engineering career started with my family business, Automation Engineering Company (AEC), at an early age shifting into the Vice President role from 1991 to 2005. During this time I established a great working relationship with JMP, helping on several large projects in the automotive, food and beverage and appliance industries.
In 2005, I started another new business venture called "The Project Automation Tech Center" in Burlington Ontario. Then in 2008, I took on a role as VP of Business Development heading the sales efforts at ABI Automation in Toronto. There I helped the owners completely transform their business and double sales within 18 months through establishing new business partnerships with some of the world’s leading bakery technology producers.
In 2014, I then joined a large established automation group, Axium Robotics & Innovations working with customers in all industries in the fortune 500 segment. During my 2 year run with Axium the business doubled in size, however was later purchased and taken in a different direction. Having kept in touch with JMP over the years a unique opportunity presented itself to join the JMP team and to help find a new home for some of my existing customers and business.
