Carl Logan has announced his retirement date, March 1, 2018.
Personally, I am extremely happy for Carl and his wife Sylvia, They embark on the next phase of their life's' journey in good health and safe to say… good cheer!
From a business relationship and co-worker perspective, Carl is going to be dearly missed by all he has encountered. I have been VERY fortunate to work with Carl the past 3.5 years, He is the epitome of a knowledgeable, professional Account Manager.
Carl's 45 years in the industry has seen him witness multiple mergers and consolidations. He began his career with Canfor Limited on St. Albans Street in Halifax in 1973, starting in the warehouse and then moving to the sales desk. He worked in the Flooring department for 12 years before transferring to Building Supplies in 1985. Canfor Limited merged with Weldwood of Canada in 1989 and Carl continued in his role as Outside Sales Representative covering Halifax, Dartmouth, Valley & South Shore under the newly
formed company CanWel Building Materials Ltd. He joined Weyerhaeuser Company in June of 1998 covering the province of Nova Scotia. He serviced that territory under Broadleaf Logistics who acquired Weyerhaeuser's Canadian distribution business in 2007. Carl rejoined his former company in 2011 when Broadleaf was acquired by CanWel Building Materials Ltd.
Carl has set a high standard for Sales Representatives in this business. Very few have managed a career with such loyalty, discipline and dedication to their company while earning the respect and admiration from his customers, vendors and peers.
Please join CanWel's Management Team and all his fellow employees in thanking Carl for his level of dedication, salesmanship, and integrity throughout the years. We want to wish Carl a healthy and happy retirement with his wife Sylvia and the rest of his family.
General Manager, Atlantic
CanWel Building Materials Ltd.
