Dawn Kerfers| Prince George, BC
24 years ago I was interviewed for an order desk and warehouse job with CGIS. I am proud to say that with a mere ten employees when I started, CGIS has grown to over 60. With knowledge of my customer’s gasket requirements and 24/7 availability, I am able to help my customers meet their needs in a timely fashion.
I have a very unique role in the Prince George office of CGIS; Administrative Assistant, Gasket Sales, Inside Sales Coordinator, Shipping/Receiving and Accounts Payable. You name it, I’m here to help you with it!
Throughout my career, CGIS has become my family and I work with an amazingly knowledgeable and talented group of people.
With my husband and two dogs, I spend my summers RVing, kayaking, boating and meeting new people.
Pascal Hatzipalousis | Adelaide, SA
I have a Metallurgical Engineering background and worked as a process engineer at a steelworks for ten years. I then took a “sea change”, moved to the big smoke and started selling valves and have been doing it ever since! I have been married for 11 wonderful years and have two children, Alexandra who is six and Theodore who is four.
I am the Business Development Leader for CGIS Australia. My role is mostly sales based with business development function for Severe Service Valves (SSVs). This profession has allowed me to tick a number of life’s goals – to travel, meet new people, and to love my work!
CGIS is an exciting and dynamic business that is defining the SSV message globally – being part of something new and revolutionary is extremely satisfying!
I love to play soccer, listen to music, and go on outdoor adventures with my children. I also like muscle cars but I don’t have time for them anymore!
Samuel Wind | Vancouver Island
After graduating with a Master of Management degree from the Sauder School of Business, I spent five years crafting my marketing prowess in the Vancouver tech industry. From here my career shifted to CGIS where I now lead our small but efficient marketing team, making sure we continue to fine tune our message and further spread the word on the importance of Severe Service Valves in an industrial setting.
I currently work remotely from Vancouver Island where I’m lucky enough spend as much time as I can with my wife and son while exploring my passions for snowboarding, surfing and hiking.
