“Company Aquisition”

Featuring Jacques Campeau

Intro: Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity, the leading podcast for residential service contractors, sponsored by Service Roundtable and hosted by David Heimer.

Dave Heimer: Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity, I’m David Heimer. Jacques Campeau, the owner, president and founder of Campo Heating in Sudbury, Ontario. Jacques has successfully grown his business to well over 30 people. And he’s been able to do it with a family emphasis. His daughters, Natalie and Dominic are in the business as well as their husbands. Campo Heating is a well-respected business. They won many awards and Jacques is a well-respected businessman. I had the pleasure of interviewing Jacques on stage in Ottawa, before a group of contractors. And it was clear, he’s not just well-respected in his city. He has fans all across Canada and the USA. I have a tremendous appreciation for Jack for the solid well-run business he grew. For his compassion for others, for his family values and for his support of our industry. So today I wanted to talk with Jack about his start in the industry. I think it’s a really interesting story. And I asked him to give me a list of his rules for life and business. I call them Jacques’ Gems. So Jacques Campeau welcome to Profiles In Prosperity.

Jacques Campeau: David, thanks for such a positive introduction. I’m definitely humbled, you have asked me to participate in this podcast.

David Heimer: It’s my pleasure. I really do have great respect for you. And I was quite sincere about everything I said. So, start off at the beginning. How did you get into this industry?
