Cardinal Boxes

Toronto, Canada Area

I am president and CEO of Cardinal Boxes, a privately-owned company that manufactures and delivers custom and standard-sized boxes. The company is located in Pickering, Ontario and currently services the Greater Toronto Area though we are looking to expand through out Canada and into the US in the coming years. Prior to joining Cardinal, I had a thriving career in procurement, having worked with IBM Canada and later Rogers Communications, where I was recognized as a high-performing employee in 2013 and 2014. In 2017, I completed my Executive MBA from the Ivey Business School, a great experience that expanded my knowledge and network. On the personal side, I’ve been married to my lovely wife Amy for 13 years and have two kids. Looking forward to contributing to YEC and growing together with its members.
