“A little about you and your business”
I am a graduate from Grant MacEwan business program, a Red and Blue Seal Journeyman Electrician from Red Deer College, and former level 2 volunteer firefighter from Fox Creek. I have called Hinton my home for over the past 20 years, and most important to me is that I am a husband, and father of 3 wonderful children we have raised here.
My wife and I own Logic Control ltd, an electrical and instrumentation company that has been in business here for over 15 years. We specialize in industrial and commercial work, supporting the oil and gas, coal, limestone, Sand, and Forestry industries in our community. Our company has extensive experience in solar, LED lighting retrofits, scada communications, VFD’s, and plant automation and process control.
Do we do residential work? Yes we do.
“What led you to become a Chamber Board Member?”
I see Hinton as a place of magnificent possibilities and had ideas I wanted to share with the community to help improve and grow. I am also a firm believer that if you want to make changes you have to get involved, it takes a team of likeminded people to accomplish this. I had a couple sit down informal meetings to share these ideas and the conversation came up to join the chamber as a board member. The timing was right for me, and seemed like a natural path to start getting involved with my community.
“Why is being a board member important to you?”
Being on the board has opened opportunities to get involved with my community and connected me with so many other people that are driven by a similar motive, and that is the success of our community.
By representing the chamber, you represent the business community and this opens doors and conversations with everyone from your federal and provincial MLA’s, local government, and initiatives like Community Futures, the Business Support Network and Hinton’s Regional Economic Development Committee (HREDC). At a local level to be involved with the community groups and have the opportunity to sit in and provide support, advice or become a liaison is something I enjoy.
“Bonus Points for a giving a fun *Business Tip*”
I am a huge fan of Napoleon Hill. With titles like Think and grow rich, and success through a positive mental attitude how can you not read these.
With his book as a framework, my fun tips would be
- Establish a master mind alliance (participate in a local group)
- Give of yourself freely and without strings attached
- Never enter a contract that isn’t fair or takes advantage of the other party involved
- Do what you love, the money will follow
