We're Growing Our Team: Welcome Wayne Desbarres!
Posted: 11/24/2016 by Avery Kloss

As continues to grow across Canada, we are excited to announce that we're expanding our talented team to help move that growth forward seamlessly. Sales and marketing master Wayne Desbarres joins as our new Vice President of Local Growth & Success. 

Wayne spent the last eight years as a Director at the Regal Gifts Corporation. For almost a decade, Wayne led Regal as their spokesperson and director tasked with sales growth, rep recruitment, training and communications. Wayne's positive attitude and history of success in retail sales growth are both welcome additions to our growing team. 

"We're so excited to have someone with Wayne's sales, marketing and management background join our team! With the rapid growth of our team across many local markets, we needed someone with a proven track record helping local representatives grow and succeed. Wayne's experience as an entrepreneur and belief in the shop local movement made him the perfect fit!" said Colin Pape, founder.

Wayne will be working with our City Managers across Canada to help them grow their local markets. As we bring on new City Managers across the country, Wayne will play an important part in the success of the model across all communities.

"Ultimately what excites me about this new role at is the opportunity to grow. I say that both personally, but also for the company. The opportunity here is huge, because although it's not the start, we are only about thirty metres into the race," said Wayne Desbarres, new VP of Local Growth & Success. "This business model is something that is so meaningful to everyone involved and the opportunity to be in on the ground floor is very exciting."
