Our Management Team…
Carlo is an MBA, and has enjoyed over 24 years as a leader in consumer products in Canada and the United States, with Tier 1 companies including Cadbury’s Chocolates, Colgate Palmolive and Kraft Foods. Carlo purchased controlling interest in Sandpiper Signs and Decals Inc. from Ken in February 2015. He realized what a jewel in the community Sandpiper is, and was immediately interested.
“Sandpiper is an institution in the Tri Cities and Lower Mainland of B.C. Their community involvement is what sets them apart and I really wanted to be part of that story”.
In 2013 Carlo was recognized by Quantum Shift as one of “Canada’s top Entrepreneurs”. Under Carlo’s leadership there is an intense focus on acting with integrity, building win-win relationships, and respecting everyone.
John graduated in 1989 from Fraser Valley College, and has been around art and design from an early age. A year in construction after school lead John to realize that designing in print shops was where he really wanted to be…unless of course he was flying hot air balloons in Kelowna – but that’s a story for a different day. John started in screen printing in 1991, has been at the heart of the Sandpiper team since 2003.
Ken comes from the school of “Hard Knocks”, starting his working life in a career in Banking in the Yukon, then drilling Water wells in Australia.
After two years of travel, he then decided to follow his passion of working with his hands in colour, layout, design, by way of screen printing and signs.
From pin-striping a chopped ’50 Ford way back when, to building and managing a successful sign business, Ken intends to keep on going!
In January 2016 Ken was awarded the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce “Chamber Member of the Year” for 2015.
We are proud to support various charities and programs in our community. Here are a few of the groups we’ve partnered with:
