‘Constant And Neverending Improvement’ (CANI) is Sid’s mantra. He lives by these words both in and out of the office.
Prior to entering the recruitment industry, Sid worked in Alberta’s financial services sector for 23 years. His specialty was in Small Business Banking. He continued assisting entrepreneurs and startups in building strong financial portfolios until 2006 when he pursue an entrepreneurial opportunity with one of his clients at the time. That’s when he took over Friday Professional Group.
In 2012, leveraging Friday’s 30-year recruitment and staffing legacy, Sid partnered with Steve Mix to create WeEmploy Inc. Under its tagline ‘Innovate.Collaborate.Care.’, the business was built to address the impact of technology on the recruitment process. It also focused on the evolving relationship between candidates and companies, and the role of not-for-profit organizations in dialogues about employment and social advancement.
Rotary Club’s guiding principle of ‘Service Above Self’ aligns with Sid’s personal and professional values and ethics. Sid joined the Rotary in 2008 and became a Board Member in 2012.
Born and raised in Saskatchewan, he entered Calgary’s business community in 1994 after spending eight years in Edmonton.
In his downtime, Sid enjoys playing golf and hockey with his network of friends and business associates.
