Rob Black, VP of Sales & Marketing and part-owner of Logs End Inc. grew up around Logs End with Gord as his father. Working on the recovery boats and at the mill as summer jobs in high school and then later working sales, Rob fell into the family business from an early age and has become an important principal. Having worked for 3 years as the General Manager of the Nepean Raiders Junior A Hockey Team, he imbues strong leadership and excels at uplifting and motivating the Logs End sales team to their full potential with his charismatic personality. While his primary responsibilities lie in overseeing the business and marketing of the company, Rob also maintains a strong passion for customer relations and takes on a significant amount of personal sales work.
Gloria Simpson, Office Manager of Logs End Inc., was born and raised in the Pontiac – recently retired from 30 years in the financial industry where customer service was paramount.
“I was not ready to be idle. I wanted to follow my passion of being a representative of the history and heritage of the Ottawa Valley. Working with Logs End fulfills that dream! AND gives me more time with my family – 3 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws and 6 grandchildren. “I see the world through Irish eyes, and they are smiling.”
Tim joined Logs End recently, and claims to have been grown from an Oak seedling many years ago in Nepean! Tim is responsible for outside sales and business development and brings a calm but passionate approach to the company and his clients. Like our logs, Tim is unique and needs to be cut down to size every now and then!
Tim’s background includes having run his own Print Management business, and as a Design Consultant with a major furniture retailer. In both environments, Tim spent many years dealing with designers, both graphic and interior. So he understands colour, and enjoys working with those in the design industry. And he is well trained to go the extra mile to make his customers look good!
Tim enjoys anything old and authentic, but not necessarily both together! He also enjoys playing soccer, history, an Irish pub, appreciates many styles of music (operates three turntables), and has an affinity for anything wood!
