Following a ten-year partnership in the Ontario market, Jim subsequently sold his shares to GFS but stayed with the company in a senior leadership capacity. When he retired from corporate life in November of 2011, Jim was Vice President of GFS Canada and fully responsible for GFS’s Canadian distribution business.
