David was born in Sudbury 37 years ago. Ten years ago he was recruited to open a branch of CTF Supply Ltd. a construction and industrial supply company. The Sudbury office has been one of the most successful in the national chain, thanks to team leader David and his staff of 10. CTF, which was recently purchased by a division of Home Depot, now has 40 branches in Canada. The Sudbury branch is expanding from its current 3,000-square foot location to a new 10,000-square foot facility with 300 percent more retail floor space. David’s job requires that he work long hours and do a lot of travelling. However, he finds time for his passions: hockey and golf.
