It is with mixed emotions that I am advising that Morris Hutchins will be retiring effective May 31, 2022.
Morris joined our sales team in 1999 through his company Morris & Crew, specifically to apply his terrific relationships with, and knowledge of, Hardware, Home Centre, and Paint dealers across British Columbia. Morris worked closely in BC for 14 years with Sandy Strome, who coincidentally retired on May 31, 2013.
Morris has always put his customers' needs first, and consequently quickly gained their trust and admiration. Rather than a salesman, he is more a close friend or a family member for many of his customers, and for all of us at Strome Sales Ltd.. I am certain that those of you who have had an opportunity to meet and spend any time with Moe, will understand why that affection persists.
Morris and his wife Beth, a Health Care Professional who is also retiring, have two married daughters, and 3 grandchildren all in the lower mainland of BC. Clearly retirement will simply be a new season for Morris, and one in which we expect he'll excel.
Please join me in congratulating Morris on his much deserved retirement.
