In 1816 Absalom Shade traveled to Dumfries Township in the Gore District of Upper Canada.
The log house as well as the grist and saw mill built along the Grand River became known as the foundation for the community of Shade's Mills and would remain known as such until 1827 when the burgeoning community was renamed Galt. Today Galt is one of the three communities that comprise Cambridge, Ontario.
The mills built along Mill Creek and the Grand River meant that work could be done locally rather than be jobbed out to other business centres.
We feel that world class business to business sales expertise can be found here in Cambridge in the form of the Shade's Mills Group.
Tom Fournier founded the Shade's Mills Group in 2018 and since founding has been helping senior executives look at and refine their sales models and strategies.
In his corporate experience, he worked through a succession of senior sales management roles managing Canada, different regions in Canada as well as the United States. His focus and expertise has been in the Business to Business arena.
He has extensive experience in managing and driving exceptional sales performance, developing exceptional customer relationships, building strong team cultures and managing organizations through adaptations and change. He also has an interest in looking at themes related to developing leadership.
Tom also has an active interest in history. He loves hiking in the nearby Shade's Mills Conservation Area.
