When he started he worked for Kodiak, one of the better-known trademarks in Canada. At that time, the company was extending its brand. Partnerships were established with prominent companies for the use of the Kodiak name on their apparels. Sub-brands were also created to protect the brand’s value and, at the same time, the discount stores were given the brand notoriety that they were looking for.

It is this experience and more that he brings with him as a trainer.
