I began my career as one of the three original founders of CHMM Inc. CHMM Inc. launched Hazardous Materials Management (now HazMat Management) magazine in 1989 which quickly became Canada's leading publication for pollution prevention and control. In 1996, Solid Waste & Recycling was launched and also became the leading Canadian publication on collection, hauling, processing and disposal. In 1999, my partners and I sold CHMM Inc. to Business Information Group in Toronto.
In February 2003, I started Falcon Ridge Group Inc. which at first started out as a sales and marketing consulting business for small and medium size businesses. The business has evolved the past few years, specializing in contracting services to the event management industry and sales/marketing projects for businesses looking to increase market share.
Since 2005 I have been the consulting show manager for the annual Waste & Recycling Expo Canada / Municipal Equipment Expo Canada. This is Messe Frankfurt's only trade show in Canada and I work with a great team of professionals in the Atlanta office all year long to produce this major show for our industry.
In the beginning of 2016, I also took on the added responsibility as Canada's representative for the environmental shows that Messe Frankfurt produces in Asia including Eco Expo Asia in Hong Kong.
In January 2016 I also expanded my business into another division by acquiring the popular industry website Construction Links Network. Established in 2003, Construction Links Network is a peer-to-peer network sharing platform for the construction, building and design community. This one-of-a-kind platform provides the tools necessary to source and distribute the latest news, videos, events and innovative products / services the industry has to offer which helps our members plan, design and build great projects around the world.
I am always open to new exciting projects to expand my network. Feel free to contact me anytime.
