I started my journey with Westburne 6 years ago in Montreal QC, as a Quotations Specialist. After 1 year I transferred back home to Calgary, Alberta to take on a role as a Project Coordinator with the Industrial / Oil and Gas Projects Team. I have had various opportunities for growth in my career while employed here and have now developed into the Divisional Manager of Industrial Projects with an amazing team of employees by my side. Westburne truly is a great company to work for, full of knowledgeable and experienced mentors, always ready and willing to lend a hand. It is a great place to grow and develop both professionally and personally.
I came from a Sheridan college hiring agency, and at the time I was going to go to law school. I had an interview here for a divisional operations coordinator role on a contract, and I never saw such a friendly work environment. When I worked here for more than 8 months I was brought on full time, and I was encouraged to grow my career here. I explored sales and quotations for a week, and shortly after I choose quotations to grow into. The company really helped me find my strengths. Westburne saw my potential to grow in sales, and gave me the confidence to align with my goals.
I have been employed with Westburne since November 7, 1983. Throughout the years I have worked in accounts payable, purchasing, industrial quotes, order desk, project coordinator and presently as Automation Contract Coordinator. Each of my roles at Westburne has allowed me to grow with experience, and work with some great people.
Procedures for Westburne Quebec
I joined Westburne as a ‘temporary position’ and I have now been here for 28 years. A few years ago, a Westburne colleague advised me to enroll into a course to maximize my strengths. I signed up at HEC Montreal and completed a certificate in logistics and operations. I learned many things. I now see situations in a different perspective and can contribute to the solution. Today I am the Regional Operations Manager – Admin & Procedures for Westburne Quebec. I am truly grateful that this company invested in my journey and love that we all work towards the same goal: to serve our customers well and add value.
