VANCOUVER, COQUITLAM, VICTORIA, AND OKANAGAN, BC…
As warehouse manager, Marc Bourdeau keeps tabs on everything. Yet as he celebrates five years with DirectBuy of Vancouver, the leading members-only showroom and home design center that offers merchandise at manufacturer-direct prices, even he’s at a loss at where the time went.
“I started with the company in 2002 but took a 14-month sabbatical a few years back. So I kind of lost track how many years it’s been, but that’s what happens when you enjoy what you do and the people you do it with,” said Bourdeau, a Vancouver resident.
During his tenure with DirectBuy of Vancouver, Bourdeau has held a variety of roles. That’s included service manager and membership sales before taking on his current role as warehouse manager. That broad array of experience has given Bourdeau some perspective on what DirectBuy means to its members.
“Part of why I love my job is seeing the reaction of members when they come to pick up an order. I’ve lost track of how many times they’ve said ‘Do you know how much I saved on this?” said Bourdeau. “The other thing about being here such a long time is that you watch families grow—from couples dating, to planning a wedding and then having children. It’s another part of the job I love.”
“We took over ownership of DirectBuy of Vancouver about a year ago. Trust me, in that scenario, you want as many experienced folks on board as you can have. Marc is a pro’s pro and we hope to have him as part of our DirectBuy family for years to come,” said Jade Allen, owner of DirectBuy of Vancouver.
