After 31 years of dedicated service, David Lloyd has decided that the time has come to settle into a life of retirement, and Friday, June 28th, 2013 was his last day at Di-Corp.
David joined Di-Corp (then Hollimex Products) in 1982 as a Sales Representative located in Edmonton. His career developed under the leadership of Steven LePoole, which led him to Oakville, Ontario in 1987. There he opened and ran a new branch that served the food and pharmaceutical markets.
David returned to Edmonton in 1993 where he continued to oversee food and pharmaceutical, as well as mineral processing distribution. When Steven Le Poole retired in 2008, David took over as President. He had the unenviable task of navigating the company through the 2008-2009 worldwide down turn, but successfully brought Di-Corp through the recession.
In 2011, David stepped down as President, and spent the remaining 2 years at Di-Corp in an International Business Development role as well as serving on the advisory board. He will continue in his role as a board member.
“I owe the success that I have accomplished during my career to many people. Firstly my parents who instilled in me from an early age the value of hard-work, commitment, integrity, honesty, kindness and respect to others. They laid the foundation for the person that I am today. “
David’s short term plans are to enjoy the summer, take a couple of trips to Europe, then spend time during the winter months at his home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
We wish David all the very best in his retirement years.
