Stor X Franchisee - Alex Voogd
Born in Holland and raised in South Africa, Alex has had a diverse upbringing. Shortly after moving to Canada, Alex met and married his wife. They now have a young daughter and currently live in Boundary Bay with their faithful black Labrador, Kobe.
Alex has had the opportunity to work and play on four continents which has only furthered his professional experience. His colourful background consists of a five year stint in an elite military unit, time spent in the Gaming Industry, the Outdoor travel and Touring industry, Corporate Destination Management, not to mention IT work in the corporate world. His ability to speak 5 languages only allows him to excel further in each endeavor and his worldly experience does nothing but enhance his ability to contribute to our business.
Even before Alex parted ways with Corporate America, he had been looking for the right franchise opportunity for some time. After having worked in various industries around the world, he was open for a complete change.
Having a family and other obligations, lead him to be attracted to less risky endeavours and allowed him to set some parameters on his search for the perfect opportunity. Alex was looking for a high quality product, something he could sell with integrity. It had to be a product with tangible benefits for his clients and a product that offered job satisfaction.
After carefully analyzing a long list of opportunities, Alex settled on STOR-X® Organizing Systems. This company allows him to be in business for himself, while still providing him with fantastic ongoing training and support from the head office. STOR-X® allows Alex to work from home, but also allows him to go out and meet prospective clients giving Alex the opportunity to connect with buyers as opposed to selling over the phone.
Due to the high caliber of the STOR-X® product, Alex deals with very receptive clients who have no problem endorsing the STOR-X® product and/or service. Alex states “there is great satisfaction in seeing the “before” and “after” of an installation, having delivered a high quality product which augments the value of my client’s homes.”
Alex would have no hesitation in recommending this opportunity to any serious, hands-on, entrepreneur.
