Stephen’s Story – Operations Manager

Stephen Lovegrove, Operations Manager
Edmonton North

When did you start with Motion Canada? May 1, 2010

What other roles have you had at Motion Canada?
I have had a few roles and worked at a couple of different branches. When I started, I was as a Warehouse Service Representative at the Brandon, MB branch. For anyone that knows the crew there (shoutout to Anna, Larry and Kelly!) you’ll know what I mean when I say that I couldn’t have asked for better folks to look up to and learn the ropes of this industry from. And just from what I witnessed there I knew my career at Motion Canada would be pretty great, even if I didn’t know exactly how it would unfold.

Then, as Motion Canada acquired different businesses over the years and our breadth of capabilities and services increased, so many new and exciting opportunities opened up for employees like myself to learn and grow our careers. I have had the chance to try a few different roles in a couple of locations and now work as the Operations Manager for our Edmonton North location!

What do you like about working at Motion Canada?
In my 10+ years with Motion Canada, I have had the pleasure of working with and for some truly outstanding people, and even as I change locations or as the business grows and adapts, that is one thing that has remained constant: the incredible people.

If you were an ice cream flavour, which would you be and why?
Rocky Road, because it has all the best elements of all the best ice cream flavours with none of the gross flavours or elements (I’m looking at you, liquorice). Chocolate ice cream? Check. Nuts? Check. Marshmallows? Check. Chocolate chunks? Check! That earns two enthusiastic thumbs up from me.  

Even as I change locations or as the business grows and adapts, one thing has remained constant: the incredible people.
