Vince     Schembri

Lead WOWzer

 

Vince loves the “role” of President of Clydesdale Services Inc., but not the “title”, which is why he is known as the Lead WOWzer. He takes that role seriously as he’s always looking for ways to WOW everyone that comes across his path. He has spent over 20 years working in different finance, accounting and operational situations. (I know this is boring to a lot of you, but I need to say it so you know that I know what I’m doing, get it?)

 

Vince is a designated accountant and a graduate from the B.C. Institute of Technology in Financial Management. His years of experience have resulted in his high levels of skill in:

 

  • Bookkeeping
  • Financial accounting
  • Cost accounting
  • Financial analysis
  • Taxation (everybody’s favourite right? – NOT!)
  • Management
  • Sales

 

Vince is also (obviously) Italian. Very Italian. He is deeply passionate about his heritage. He also enjoys most sports, especially kickboxing, and is an active member at his church.
