Dave Wilson's Retirement

Rick Taylor June 10, 2013 Press Release, News, Burlington

It is not too often in today's world when an employee stays with the same firm for 10 years let alone over 40 years, yet Dave Wilson has done just that.

Dave started with Taylor Moving in 1972 as a young man. He quickly rose through the ranks due to his unbridled enthusiasm and professionalism. He became a van foreman for our firm where he continued to rack up driver of the year awards and an extremely low claims record. During this time he moved well over 5000 households around the block and/or across North America.

Dave continued his excellence until he approached his 60th birthday. When Russ and Rick Taylor bought the firm they knew great,dedicated and talented people like Dave are just too hard to replace. After much brain storming they moved Dave into the newly formed position of Quality Control Manager. Over the last 10 years Dave has been responsible for all aspects of training new and existing Taylor staff. His knowledge and passion is going to be very hard to replace.

Dave has been not only a model employee but a model citizen. Says Rick Taylor, one of the owners of the firm " all of my life Dave Wilson has been here. From the time I was a 5 year old boy and he would drive me around in the big trucks, to the times he trained me as a student helper and recently his help in developing our staff as a co-worker, there will be a bit of an empty feeling around here without Dave. He will be missed"

The entire Taylor staff wish nothing but the best to Dave and his family in the future!

Mr Wilson as most of us know him has been a great influence on my life and many others, I was with the Taylor firm for 8 years, right from day one Dave was there. He was the most positive, dedicated motivational mentor I've ever had the pleasure to work with, he could take the worst move the longest day or the toughest client in to a successful fulfilling day going home feeling like you accomplished the world. Many words of wisdom from Mr Wilson over the years will forever be part of me and how I live my life. Thank you for everything Dave, glad to hear your finally taking time to enjoy what you've worked all these years for. Todd Dinelle

Dave I regret that I never got the chance to say good bye to you when I left Taylor Moving but you were a mentor, role model and I looked up to you with the utmost respect and admiration. It was truly a pleasure and an honor to learn the ropes from one of the best! I wish you all the very best in all your endeavors! :)
