Canadian entrepreneur Denis Vincent is an acknowledged name in many industries. Mr. Vincent, who has been associated with varied sectors, is famed for his business aptitude and work as a philanthropist. In this post, we will try to discover his story and what makes him different.
The modest start
Mr. Vincent started his career as an administrator in 1983. He worked in that position for a year with P.R.C.S. construction insulation. During this period he realized his passion for business, and he wanted to do something that’s basic but doesn’t involve a lot of money. For the same, he wanted the necessary expertise, and it was in 1984 that he joined Moto Bateau. He wanted to learn the basics of sales, and worked in aftermarket services and sale of boats and motorcycles for the company. He stayed with Moto Bateau for around five years, before he embarked in his own journey.
Work in sales
After gaining exposure in sales, he started working as a private executive and remained in the sector of auto sales & word wide exportation for the next 10 years. During this period, he worked on projects in Asia and Russia, which remains one of his many achievements. Later on in 2000, he started expanding in the field of real estate, as well, and his name has been associated with some of the biggest and more relevant mergers in the Canadian marker. His real estate business, which is mainly focused in parts of British Columbia, Quebec, and Alberta, has been flourishing since then, and he continues to have varied interests in the sector. After he left the auto sales industry, he wanted to help budding entrepreneurs in the same field and for that, he often offers his expertise and experience through his blogs.
Aviation and more
Denis Vincent is often known better by many as the president and founder of Heli Vincent Inc. The company, which deals in dry leasing and sales of aircrafts and helicopters in British Columbia, Quebec, and Alberta, has been his pet project since 1997. Before that, he opted to train as a pilot, and as of latest information available, he has over 14,000 TT to his credit. In many of his candid interviews, he has talked about his passion for the aviation industry. He has flown coast to coast in Canada and beyond, and that remains his only passion to date.
When Denis is not busy working, he is often busy with his charities. Although he doesn’t like to mention these associations and maintains a low profile, his work is quite famed, especially among those who know him. Apart from all his work, he is also associated with Strong Arm Labour & Contracting since 2011, as their chief financial officer. Denis loves to talk about his work at different public events, and he has expressed his desire to do something for the new generation, so that they can take their business ideas further. No wonder, Mr. Vincent and his career remains a point of discussion for many.
