Irving Schwartz

leadership_irving-schwartz.jpgThe person we've chosen to kick things off was someone who had a thing or two to say about getting things done... I guarantee it!

Irving Schwartz had been involved with more than 30 different companies over the years, from the Schwartz Furniture Showrooms and Seaside Cable, to nursing homes, computer software & oyster fishing. Irving was also co-founder of the Canadian International De-mining Corps. He said his proudest accomplishment was being appointed to the Order of Canada.

We talked in the summer of 2009 at his office in Sydney.

Irving Schwartz died on September 18, 2010 at age 81.
