One big advantage to operating a small town business is that word of mouth advertising is often the best kind, and the least costly. When you offer excellent service, he notes, satisfied customers are quick to spread the word. "It's easy to build a great customer base here," Kevin says.
When it comes to daily living, small towns are much more personal. "You have a history with the people around you," notes Kevin. "The town is like family and people really pull together when they need to. " He has seen this happen many times and is proud to be a part of a place that cares for its fellow citizens during tough times.
After graduating from university, Kevin came to Cardinal 2 Way and worked for four years. He then went on to work on several long-term projects, including the installation of the Raglan mine as the project manager, then maintenance in northern Quebec for five years. He then went on to work on the installation of the Alberta Forestry Fire Net as a senior project field manager for four and a half years. He also worked on several short-term projects before and after. Wanting to put down roots and spend more time with his family, he returned to Chetwynd and purchased Cardinal Telecom. It was an opportunity that he knew was meant for him, and he is enjoying creatively meeting the everyday challenges that come with operating a business. He is proud of his loyal, capable staff who work hard at what they do and have helped to make the business successful. One of the perks of Kevin's job is having access to high-quality audio equipment. One of the ways he likes to spend his free time is in his home theatre that's fully wired for sound. Most of all, he loves to spend time with his family.
