FAVOURITE QUOTE: “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every problem, and an optimist sees the opportunity in every problem.” – Winston Churchill
TOUGHEST CHALLENGE: In 2009, the RCMP arbitrarily and without notice changed a policy that forbade any company like BackCheck from accessing criminal records. It was crushing – I flew to Ottawa and in three weeks it was reversed.
FAVOURITE SPORTS TEAM: Love watching Nadal play tennis.
