Any management team should be selected such that talents are complimentary and not overlapping. All key areas necessary to accomplish our goals and objectives are within the strengths and talents of our team and as above, nothing is achieved without blood, sweat and tears. Nothing worth achieving comes easy and a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step.

Rob graduated from NAIT with a marketing diploma and has since garnered many accreditations, ranging from home building on Alberta soils all the way to advanced lacquer training. This construction familiarity is rounded out on the business front with experience in VBA programming, a keen eye towards production oriented systems and over a decades practice with costing and construction management.
