Above all, Brandon’s return to Cranbrook was driven by his great admiration for his large extended family and many friends in the area. “Nothing could be better,” he says. “And to put my skills to work on behalf of the team and customers at Sun Valley Nissan has really given me a great sense of accomplishment.” After completing his studies in Fine Arts at Malaspina College in Nanaimo, Brandon served as a territory manager for Coast Crane Company for 14 years. Today, more than ever, he appreciates the personal approach he can take with staff and customers in his hometown, where his connections run deep. His singular goal has been to foster a transparent sales environment, and he expects his sales team to conduct itself with utmost honesty and integrity. Golf, hockey and coaching take up some of his spare time. He also has two children, a 20-year-old daughter and 17-year-old son, who’ll be graduating this year.
