Cole truly has a passion for innovation. As a career entrepreneur his work has spanned decades in the Health and Wellness and Specialty Food spaces.
Recognizing the common bond of money in all business. Cole now aims his sights and passion on the financial industry.
Growing up with a Mother who is an artist/gallery owner and a Father who worked 40 years for the Government, Cole had a very diverse exposure to work at a young age. This varied upbringing provides him with the tools needed in today’s business landscape. Being able to see problems and solutions form many perspectives.
Graduating from the Shiatsu/ Acupuncture School of Canada Cole opened his first clinic in 1995. Patients would seek his wellness services for a variety of conditions. Diet and exercise seemed to be the common cure. It was here that Cole recognized a need for education around nutritious and delicious food. This led him to the artisanal cheese industry.
Not only was artisanal cheese a cure for lactose intolerance it happened to also be very delicious and very in demand. The Toronto market, where Cole resided had close to 1/3 of the nation’s population and no cheese.
Driving his Honda Accord from Toronto to Montreal multiple times per week to buy cheese from local purveyors Cole went on to build the 19 th fastest growing company in Canada reaching National distribution to Loblaws, Walmart, Sobeys and Costco.
The problem for Cole is that the Cheese industry had a quota system and a hard ceiling. Considering Cole’s strength is growth this was very stifling for him.
The financial industry provides Cole with unlimited growth potential. Here we will be able to serve and grow. There is a vital need for innovation, service and education in this industry. Cole will be able to use his strength to the best of his abilities.
