Retirement Announcement: Doug McFadden

It is with mixed emotions and sincere gratitude for his service that we are announcing the retirement of our B.C. Territory Manager, Doug McFadden, at the end of June. Doug has looked after major telecommunications accounts in British Columbia for the last five years.

 

This is Doug’s second retirement! He retired from Telus after a 34-year career, much of that focused on outside plant design. When Doug “retired” from Telus, he was Manager, Purchasing & Inventory Management. Doug then went to work for CommServe Marketing and joined SOS when CommServe was acquired.

 

Doug is looking forward to spending more time with his wife Dawne, his daughter, and his grandchildren. When things return to normal, they are looking forward to travelling again, as well as returning to their role as B.C. Bridge player champions with friends.

 

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will have to delay his retirement dinner to a future date when we can all get together in person again.

 

Congratulations to Doug! Thank you for your service and we wish you an enjoyable, relaxing retirement.
