Mike started working for Windsor in 1987, having moved here from Vancouver and previously Calgary. He grew up in a small town in southern Alberta and recognizes the importance of community and small town. Then Mike spent 7 plus years traveling full time as a professional musician; in and out of recording studios in both large and small venues; working with some heavy weights in the industry from the UK to the USA to Canada. He continues with his involvement in music on a more casual basis locally with some talented players.
Mike’s son Greyston, grew up on our island and always considers Salt Spring home. Greyston is working as an actor having worked in Canada, the USA and the Caribbean. He gets great enjoyment hearing from proud parents of their kids’ achievements. Youth are important to us at Windsor and we support them through sports and the arts wholeheartedly.
Mike has worked in 3 other building supply operations in very competitive markets and he understands that it takes service along with competitive pricing to maintain loyal customers. As Assistant Manager, Mike looks after project sales including door shop services, installations and finishing, and purchases various finishing and engineered goods. Mike oversees and develops most of our marketing and makes really good coffee.
The relationships Mike builds with his customers is the most important aspect of working at Windsor as well being able to offer the best quality, value and service possible. Giving back to the community is the single biggest reward the whole staff receives from your patronage. Not much feels better than a warm hand shake when being acknowledged for our ethics and business practices in being a part of your business and home.
