We have known Chris a long time. Seventeen years in fact, which is when he joined the custom garage door manufacturer, Altwood Doors. He was hoping to become a chef, going to culinary school when he took a summer job picking parts and assembling garage doors, some of which he shipped to Aurora Overhead Doors.
What happened to his dream of becoming a chef? “I still love cooking. I cook at home and plan catered parties and events.” But while he is not a full time cook he feeds his creative spirit in other ways, “I am still a hands-on guy, playing guitar, playing hockey and I love seeing our doors appearing on buildings. It is tangible and it gives me a great feeling.”
After working in the manufacturing function Chris helped grow Altwood’s business working in scheduling, purchasing, and then managing a team running the wholesale division. “Over seventeen years I got to know pretty much every company that installs garage doors in Ontario.”
Why did he join the Aurora Overhead Door team? “I always liked these guys. I liked the way they did business.” Chris considered it a long time. “I really thought about it for years because for big decisions you always want to make the right decision.”
We are excited to have Chris as part of our team. He knows the garage door business inside and out. He brings the same passion he has for cooking to picking the perfect door that makes a house “look rich”, as he says, and getting every detail perfect.
