“It may sound corny, but I truly enjoy coming to work each day knowing that I have a real opportunity to help my co-workers and clients succeed, while being part of an organisation that is growing and contributing to make our society a better place to live. Our core values of being hungry for knowledge and the success of others, checking our egos at the door, and intelligence with our interactions with others creates opportunities for our staff and clients to achieve their goals and dreams.”
Outside of the office you may find Don on his bike or on one of the wonderful Port Hills trails enjoying this awesome countryside that we are so blessed to reside within.
