Dave W.

While some people complain about the fact that Kelowna only has two seasons – ski season and golf season – that’s exactly why Dave loves it so much. When this Alberta native isn’t expounding fluently on his favorite topic, the myriad and profound differences between shelving and racking –! — he’s hitting the slopes in style. If you can catch Dave, not on skis, be sure to bring him all your pressing questions – you know, the ones that keep you up at night — about shelving, racking, workstations and even mezzanines, he for sure will have an answer…

For over 15 years, Dave has managed many storage projects for libraries in the interior. His approachable personality has gained him the trust of many customers.

Paul

Before joining the Hi-Cube team in 1998, Paul’s greatest claim to fame was growing up in the same hometown as The Great One himself, Mr. Gretzky! The two both hail from Brantford in Southern Ontario. When Paul isn’t out on the ice racking up penalties, he’s cultivating his love for sports photography, a hobby that will take him all the way to Beijing in 2014.

Paul is currently looking after specific Hi-Cube projects. We are fortunate to have a very knowledgable pallet racking inspector to serve our customers.

Bruce

Welcome back Bruce!. He is currently overseeing major projects for Hi-Cube.

When it comes to golf, Bruce is not messing around: He’s got a handicap of 13 and he’s not afraid to let you know it. However, like the angler who always seems to catch that record-breaking fish when no one else is around — sadly, it somehow always seems to slip off the hook! — some speculate that perhaps this impressive handicap is actually due to all of those “birdies” and “eagles” he gets when no one’s looking. Not that we’re implying anything. When Bruce isn’t out taking mulligans hitting aces, he loves to travel to faraway destinations and try new cycling routes.

Walter

Walter knows a thing or two about rejection; after all, he started his direct-sales company, sometimes working as a door-to-door salesman peddling software to university students. While this career path necessitated avoiding attending any performances of “Death of a Salesman,” it also taught him the importance of positive thinking and resilience, both traits that he definitely applies in both his personal and professional life — especially when it comes to his golf game. (Never give up, Walter. You’ll get better someday.) And speaking of his professional life, we all know Walter’s in the office when we hear his “melodic” songs and whistled tunes floating through the air.

Walter’s persistence to get the best price and solution for his customers has made him successful. You will notice his innate enthusiasm to help, as soon as you talk to him.

Scott

Scott describes himself as “incredibly modest,” and we can’t help but agree. But being so humble all the time has got to be a burden; really, you can’t blame Scott for wanting to brag just a tiny bit about his appearances on TV series known for their complex and thoughtful plot lines, ground-breaking social commentary, and award-winning casting. Of course, we’re talking about the 1980s hits “MacGuyver,” “21 Jump Street” and “Neon Rider,” in which Scott guest-starred alongside luminaries of the stage and screen including de Niro, Pacino, Heston and Hasselhoff.

Scott: His dream of becoming the “go-to-guy” for storage solutions has helped him acquire big customers such as TransLink, Museum of Vancouver, St. Mary’s hospital and RCMP.

Gerry

If you ever step into the elevator and find a guy who’s frozen in warrior pose the whole way up, don’t panic… it’s just Gerry, Hi-Cube’s resident yogi and all-around happy thoughts guru. When he’s not practicing his morning Sun Salutations, getting ready to enjoy another day engaged in his favorite activity — talking to people — you’ll find Gerry indulging in his other favorite activity, travel. His work for Hi-Cube involves travel to Vancouver Island, so if you need any travel tips, Gerry’s your man. He’s (literally) traveled to every single part of B.C.

Gerry: Over 15 years of experience advising customers on the best way to store items. His territory is Vancouver island.

Steve

It’s Saturday morning: Guess where Steve is? That’s right, he’s parked at the local Tim Horton’s enjoying that weekend morning cup of joe — and perhaps a donut or three. When Steve isn’t enjoying his weekly dose of Tim Bits, he’s probably either playing with his daughter — er, I mean golden retriever — or taking a strenuous mountain bike ride in an effort to work off those Saturday morning donuts. Of course, if it was up to Steve, he’d just be taking it easy beside the pool with a Corona in one hand and a plate of super nachos in the other.

Steve: Industrial storage expert that has been with the company since inception. You have a question, concern or doubt about storage solutions? He will have the answer for you!

Neil

What makes most sales professionals quake in their boots? The answer can only be cold-calling… but not Neil Bodenman. Nope, this experienced sales consultant scoffs — nay, throws back his head and guffaws out loud — at the mere thought of dialing that number or requesting that meeting. Perhaps that’s because avid snowboarder/skier Neil grew up taking risks on the slopes. In fact, this Vancouver Island native loves all things outdoors, and likes to spend time golfing, fishing and camping when he’s not riding the mountain.

His background in marketing and professional sales probably helps, too; Neil is a BCIT graduate who’s spent most of his career selling heavy machinery. As a goal-driven sales professional, Neil likes to focus intently on his work… so don’t be offended if he isn’t chatting it up all day long around the water cooler. This tall, silent type likes to get things done and do them right!
