What’s the best way to spend a Saturday in Fort McMurray?
Gregoire Lake! Although I am a redhead so bring the sunscreen.
Trevor Christensen was living in Calgary when his company purchased Alberta Motor Products and renamed it Summit GM. The deal to buy the store went quicker than expected which allowed Trevor a very short time to make a decision as to whether or not he and his family wanted to move to Fort McMurray.
To help him decide, Trevor made a trip up here and was instantly surprised by the beauty of the landscape. But it was meeting that staff that made the decision easy, “It took very little time to realize that if this is the type of people that I get to work with, then I can figure out the rest.”
Fort McMurray continues to impress Trevor as he has come to realize that all over town, people are kind, caring, and so proud of our community. “I wish the rest of Canada could see what Fort McMurray is really about. It really is the responsibility of the rest of us that live here to spread that message,” he says.
“I have had a lot of people ask me if I know something that they don’t considering how much we are investing in a time of uncertainty. We are here for the long haul and are proud to continue to sink our roots deep into this great community.”
“My parents always told me I was an old soul… I found that I was always eager at a young age to learn from other people. I’ve always had mentors.” Trevor calls the core people in his life his personal Board of Directors. Whenever he needs to make a hard choice, he knows he can count on the advice of others. “We are foolish not to learn from the ones who have come before.”
Trevor strongly believes that everyone has so much to teach, and that our greatest strength is knowing where we are weak and surrounding ourselves with those who are strong. That is what Trevor has done, and that is what this community is doing.
