Mark McKillop

I’ve been working in the retail business for 25 years now. The last 15 of those have been with Kent Building Supplies, and they have been the best 15 years I have spent in the retail business!

Over the past 15 years with Kent I’ve been presented with lots of great opportunities to learn and grow with the company. I can honestly say that Kent provides some of the best training I have seen in my retail career! In the time I have been with the company I have been given the opportunity to take Process Improvement, and Lean training to become a certified Six Sigma Green Belt. I have also been given the opportunity to take, and graduate from, our in-depth Management Development Program. And lastly, and most recently I graduated from the EMBA program at Saint Mary’s University.

I have worked for a lot of different people in my retail career, and until I became a Kent employee I had no idea what I was missing; a company that puts their people first, has great benefits, great career growth opportunities and great training programs! Some people say the grass isn’t always greener on the other side, but it is … its KENT green to be exact!

It’s been 15 years and the opportunities still continue to present themselves. I am happy that I work for a growing Atlantic Canadian owned company.
