Coquitlam, British Columbia Canada (PressExposure) October 14, 2008 -- âMeganâs 10-year anniversary means a lot to us for many reasons. For starters, being in business for 10 years doing anything says something in itself, but to provide enough challenges and opportunity for growth for your employees to want to stay that long says quite a bit about DirectBuy,â said Peter Ruetz, co-owner of DirectBuy of Greater Vancouver. âMeganâs been a wonderful addition to our company from her first day until now. Frankly, itâs impossible for me to think of this place without her here.â
Originally hired as a receptionist, Taylor quickly became a jack-of-all trades, helping customers place orders and even working in shipping and receiving. That versatility paid off and she was promoted to service manager, a position sheâs held for the past seven years.
A resident of Pitt Meadows, Taylor worked in the medical field prior to her DirectBuy days and holds a medical office assistantâs certification from Douglas College. During her time at DirectBuy, sheâs won Corporateâs Ultimate Service Star and attended The Summit conference for DirectBuyâs superior performers.
Said Taylor,âDirectBuy has been a wonderful place to work these past 10 years. What amazes me that even after 10 years, I still learn so much about furniture and the business itself. Another benefit is that there are members Iâve known since my first day until now. Iâve seen them come in and buy wedding invitations, then baby furniture and so on. Plus, Peter and Steve are just amazing people to work for. Theyâre really more like my family.â
