Keenly observant, passionate and thoughtful, “good enough” is never good enough for Kathy. She is known to do whatever it takes to ensure her clients are thrilled with her company’s work, and her relationships in the industry speak volumes – she’s had some of the same clients since she started out over 30 years ago.

When it comes to bragging rights, we believe we could go on and on when it comes to our design capability – and lucky for us, we have a very talented and experienced Graphic Designer on our team.  Amy brings a fresh and contemporary look to everything she touches, and has an impressive roster of work behind her.  Clients are impressed with her ability to hone in on their needs and present a design that is perfectly on point with their message.

Our resident “numbers” person, Celina is responsible for ensuring our finances are in order. Her initiative, willingness to learn and eagerness to develop her skills has proven to be integral to the success of Motive. Celina’s friendliness and sweet nature make her a super fun co-worker (just don’t leave files on top of the filing cabinet)!

Manager, Production & Installation

Randy Shepherd

As Installation Manager, it’s Randy’s job to ensure the end result is even more impressive than design concepts.  He’s always up for anything if it means getting a job done well.  He’s taken on traveling to Northern Ontario (has anyone heard of Detour Lake?  Randy has – he’s been there twice to do a remote installation job), Northern Alberta and everything in between.  His handy nature is very helpful around the shop – he’s been known to take bribes with bacon.

Shermen’s witty sense of humour and willingness to go the extra mile make him an integral part of the Motive team.

Production Coordinator & Finishing Lead

Dino Marcucci

Our resident materials “expert”, Dino brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Finishing department at Motive. His organization, attention to detail, and uncanny knack to be able to determine how much material is on a roll just by looking at it means that Dino gets asked a million questions a day by the rest of us (and he always has the answers)!
