Account Manager

When tasked with writing my bio, the first thing I did was google how to write a bio. I made it through half a paragraph before I got bored - that should tell you everything you need to know about me :) If that’s not enough here’s the rest; I come to work every day with the goal of helping one client and making another laugh, anything less is unacceptable and anything more is a bonus.

When not in the office I can usually be found at home with my wife Jessica, our son Sheldon & our two Labrador Retrievers, Lloyd Christmas & Maggie.

If you’d like to know anything else, please feel free to call me. I prefer to talk on the phone but will respond to your email immediately :)

Technical Account Manager

With over a decade of tech support experience, Adam comes to us after spending the last few years doing hardware support for POS systems. Adam has a passion for taking things apart to see how they work, and this translates to a real tenacity for tracking down a problem. He is always happy and chipper and his jovial voice can be heard across the office (not intentionally).

Technical Support

Adam joined the CRS family in March of 2019. A self described “professional phone jockey” Adam worked for Shaw Communications and Dell Canada call centers before joining CRS.
