Having given a great opportunity to join a family business, was truly a dream come true. Joining Sands in 1976, I had the opportunity to watch my father Gord, make his mark on the flooring industry. Gord’s philosophy was very simple: look after your customers, be honest and strive for improvement. Changing from a carpet distributor to a full commercial flooring company was not an easy task, but with the right people believing in the same philosophy, it helped make it easier. I soon realized that business was built around people and not floor covering. We have made many changes since I joined some 38 years ago, and I am sure there are many more to come. Waking up every day and going to work is what I like to do.
