EconoWise is proud of our Team of Professionals.
Here are a few bios of our key “players”. More to come with “action” photos of our Pros at work.
Lesley Jones: Company President, CEO, Chief Estimator.
Lesley brings over 30 years experience in providing Home Improvement Services. She cut her teeth in the insulation and UFFI removal business back in 1981 in Ontario, moved to BC and into window replacement, roofing and siding and then joined Laidlaw Environmental in 1995 where for 7 years she served the BC industrial sector, ensuring that their Hazardous Waste was managed appropriately.
In 2002 she decided to go back into the Home Improvement arena with a BC based Solarium and Patio Cover firm as an Estimator in order to study and master this special Home Renovation niche.
EconoWise Sunrooms & Patio Covers provides her with the opportunity to provide her clients with access to quality materials and superior workmanship while ensuring superior customer service.
She is able to combine her initial career background as an Educator (she loves to teach you about what you need for your project, she was a Phys. Ed Teacher in her first life) and that of Contract Manager (with all the skills required to get the job done right and on time).
Her BC experience has provided her with the contacts, access to the best materials and people in the business to form the foundation of EconoWise Sunrooms & Patio Covers as it is constituted today.
Barbara Gould: Administrator/Customer Service
Barbara brings her calm, customer service oriented demeanour to EconoWise. Her experience as Customer Service Supervisor and Trainer with American Airlines, Executive Assistant to the VP, Medicine, Children’s Hospital and Administrator of the Arts Council of Surrey makes her very well suited to take care of contract implementation and service needs of EconoWise clients.
Dan Kristjanson: Shop & Service Manager
Dan is Lesley’s right hand man. He takes care of her every request and fulfills them all brilliantly. He brings 30 years of finishing carpentry, general contracting and project management experience to the team. A BC native of Icelandic heritage, he brings dedication, attention to detail and a desire to serve to EconoWise.
