Hi! I am Brian, one of the sales-reps here at Factor Forms & Labels.
So, it's my turn for the big Blog post!
I have been working at Factor Forms & Labels for just over nine years now. Most of that time has been in the Sales department with a short stint helping with launching our Digital product line.
When I was young and full of dreams, I wanted to become a Graphic Designer. After attending design school I began my career as a sales person in the newspaper industry. After several years of experience, I became a newspaper publisher and worked for many different papers all across Alberta. As that industry began to decline, I found myself out of a job after 23 years in the business. I worked at a few other jobs and then eventually found my way to Factor (thanks Jenn). My favourite part of being a sales person at Factor Forms is dealing with all of my clients, because they are the BEST!
In my spare time I like to stay active. I really enjoy biking, camping, slow pitch and golf. I coach alpine skiing at Rabbit Hill in the winter and love waterskiing in the summer. Being on a mountain or a Lake is my happy place. I just love the fresh air and peacefulness.
An interesting fact about me is that I have been President of two different Chambers of Commerce - one in Sherwood Park and the other in Hinton. This experience was amazing and has enabled me to meet so many lifelong friends, all over Alberta.
I would love to travel more, but having raised three sons there was not much of a budget for big trips. My bucket list for future travel is to go on a Safari in Africa and I would also love to visit Greece, because there is so much history there.
“Big Trouble in Little China” is my favourite movie. In fact, my youngest son is named after Kurt Russell. I love to quote lines from that movie as well as the movie “Grease.”
