    How long have you been a part of the Rivershore Family?

    I joined the Rivershore team just over 3 years ago.

    Any previous industry experience?

    No. I have spent most of my life in the restaurant and hotel business. I started working as a bus-boy/waiter at the Niakawa Hotel in Winnipeg while taking a Business Administration course at MIT. From there I worked as an accountant before purchasing the Blue River Hotel in 1971. In 1972 I moved to Clearwater where I purchased the Wells Gray Inn which I ran for 25 years. In 1999 I moved into Kamloops where I opened the Traditions Restaurant at the Comfort Inn, then the Grasshopper Pub and then I found my way here to Rivershore.

    Favorite 2015 Model and why?

    I love my Jeep Grand Cherokee. It rides great, lots of room and all of the features are an added bonus!

    If you are not here working where can you usually be found?

    I spend a lot of my free time golfing. Whether it be with friends or my four sons who are all great golfers! I also love to travel, especially Palm Springs, Hawaii and Australia. Over the years I have spent a lot of time playing slow pitch, skiing (both downhill and cross country) as well as lots of hunting and fishing. If I'm not doing any of that then I am probably in the kitchen cooking. I love entertaining and cooking for family and friends especially my grandsons and wife Barbara who I have been with for 54 years.

    What other organizations and/or committees have you been involved with over the years?

    Over the years I have been very active with the Lions Club, Rotary Club, Toastmasters, Chamber of Commerce, Hotel Association, and Tourism BC.

    Shelly has worked with us here at Rivershore for the past 4 years. She works in reception as well as with the accounting department. When asked about what she liked working at the dealership she responded "It is something new every day and I love the busy atmosphere. It is very exciting seeing customers driving off the lot in their brand new vehicle. We recently had a couple that bought their very first brand new vehicle after all the kids were gone and all graduated from school, it was finally their turn."
