Canadian General Contractors Group

I have helped expand the Canadian General Contractor's Group (CGC Group) across Canada, including opening the Vancouver General Contractors (VGC).

Canadian General Contractors started in Ottawa, Canada in 2009. I partnered with the original owner Moe Abbas on a Vancouver location in March of 2011. Since then, we have opened a location in Toronto and Calgary. After our fourth and most successful launch in Calgary in February of 2014, we started a plan to franchise our proven model across Canada and the states. In the first 10 months of business, our Calgary officer made $2.1 million in sales.

I have always owned my own business or helped others build their business. Before joining Canadian General Contractors, I helped expand what is now Canada’s largest travel company. I was on the front lines of business development, having built their Cuba program from scratch and helping expansion into new markets such as British Columbia and Alberta. Building businesses has always been a passion of mine and I am very fortunate to have the opportunities to do so.
