James is the newest and much anticipated addition to our team at Vantage Building Supplies. He joined us in the spring and wasted no time settling into his role as the payables clerk for the building supplies division and a sales desk associate at the order desk. His customer service skills and knowledge in the estimating department have already proven to be an asset to the company and our customers. James moved to Alberta in 2009 from Vancouver and later completed the SCMP Purchasing course at the University of Alberta. He has work experience in the plumbing industry as an apprentice and was a purchaser for both a manufacturer in the oil & gas industry, and a general contractor working in the high-rise condo construction market. Most recently, he was the operations manager for an Edmonton contractor for which he handled estimating, sales, and material take-offs. James is looking forward to working towards his MBA (Masters of Business Administration) as he continues his new career at Vantage. He and his wife, Emilie and their children Oliver and Agnes recently moved to Vegreville from Sherwood Park. They enjoy spending time on the farm together and playing music.
