As a life-long resident of Thunder Bay, Blaine has spent virtually his entire professional career helping ‘BUSINESS MOVE’ in various ‘B2B’ sales roles.
From realizing his passion for fulfilling customer needs as the Customer Experience Manager at Armani’s Night Club in the early 90s, to becoming an Account Manager with local media outlet Dougal Media, Blaine’s B2B career launched!
A ‘national perspective’ set in with Canadian industry leaders Purolator Courier as the Regional Sales Representative for 4 years, and Grand & Toy as the District Sales Manager and National Sales Trainer for 8 years, where Blaine learned what it meant to truly be the BEST, winning nationally recognized awards.
Building a solid platform from those experiences, Blaine then chose to focus on the local marketplace and was offered the privilege to become the Director of Sales at local telecommunications leader Tbaytel. 6 years later, after a senior management shuffle, Blaine then partnered with Open-Mind Performance Canada and worked with both National and Local firms focused on helping them to GROW their businesses.
May, 2014, initially recruited to join ReMax First Choice Realty Ltd., Blaine is now leading Commercial Sales and Leasing with Apex Realty Services, and injects his vast B2B sales experience in supporting the growth of the Apex Commercial Security division. Blaine serves as a single point of contact for businesses region wide as he leverages his market knowledge, consultative sales expertise and personal connections to work alongside his clients to clearly understand and satisfy their overall business goals and objectives.
Blaine is a member of the International Business Broker’s Association (www.IBBA.ca), and works with business owners who are preparing to SELL their business, and aspiring entrepreneurs who are getting ready to BUY a business that suits their skill set and experience.
Blaine will take the time to thoroughly learn about what his clients wish to achieve, then will establish, and execute, a well thought out plan to make it all happen!
