On behalf of all the employees at West Country, I would like to thank Ken Houle for his many contributions over the past 15 years! Ken has been instrumental in helping build the company’s successful business and culture. After Ken joined the team on January 7th, 2007, he immediately started making a difference with everything he focused on. The relationship between Ken and his peers was never just business, and he was always entertaining at our company events such as fishing trips for instance. No one else in the company ever got the West Country LOGO clipped into their hair – ha, and this may stand for a while as I certainly can’t see it happening anytime soon!

Ken, you will be missed – but I know you will be ready for the next professional challenge in your career. Your new team is lucky to have you on board! Best of wishes my friend.
