What do you remember most about your first day on the job?

Just being nervous. I was 16, it was my first real job.

What is the best part of working at Sobeys?

The people, both customers and fellow staff. My wife works here too; this is our extended family.

What is your proudest moment as a Sobeys employee?

Any time I was selected for a special project or promotion. Our store has been a pilot multiple times, and they know we can get the job done right.

What is your favourite memory from the past 25 years?

The birth of my children.

What advice would you give to a new Sobeys employee?

Ask a lot of questions and work hard.

Who do you most admire?

My better half Barb. She’s a smart, independent and strong woman. I know it sounds cheesy but it’s true.

My Sobeys is...

...my career.
