People Services and Support Manager
How long have you worked at Admiral?
I started in January, 2011.
Describe what you do.
I’m responsible for the vision, strategy, support and coaching of one department consisting of 6 very different support functions including People Services (HR), Payroll, Communications, Finance, IT and Facilities.
What attracted you to Admiral?
First off, the people who work here all support each other and they all have winning attitudes. Together we accomplish a lot all while having a great time together. Secondly, next to great people nothing competes with being on a winning team and this company is easily one of the most successful companies I’ve ever heard of let alone being able to participate in. The winning attitudes of our staff coupled with our winning business strategy make working at Admiral a no brainer.
What’s your greatest success to date at Admiral?
Every task I have is to make Admiral a better place to work and every time I accomplish this I experience my greatest success which is indirectly the creation of more great jobs for a very skilled Nova Scotian community. I love this province and nothing brings me more joy then to contribute positively to our economy through positive job growth opportunities.
What kind of person succeeds in your role?
My role is unique and being able to utilize very different approaches every day as I find myself working in very different departments hour by hour. There’s no other role like mine in our office and I love it. Forget each day, I never know what each hour will look like and I love nothing more than the huge variety of challenges I get to step up to.
