Meet your RV professionals
MEET THE MANAGEMENT AT BIG BOY’S TOYS LTD.
Ian began this journey back in 1998 when he discovered a passion for this industry.
Prior to this chapter in his career, Ian spent many years in the building industry in the Victoria area.
His family have deep roots in the Victoria area where they were part of the Moore-Whittington Lumber Company which spanned from 1867 until 1965 when it was purchased by BC Forest Products. During the 1960’s and 1970’s his family partnered with Cyril Thames of Bowser, B.C. in a corporation named Thames Boatworks where they built fishing and pleasure boats.
Ian’s commuting days from Victoria ended when he and his family formally took up residence in the Nanoose area during 2012.
Ian loves this industry and enjoys reflecting on all of the changes he has witnessed since his start in the business.
He and his family enjoy participating in the RV lifestyle whenever opportunities permit and he is excited to help you and your family enjoy it too.
Shannon has been working for us since 2006 (and earlier on an on-call basis).
She holds degrees from UVic and has done post-secondary studies at Camosun College in their Accounting department.
In her position, she is responsible for all of our payables, receivables, government remittances, payroll etc.
Outside of the office, she loves to garden, paint and is always (at least it seems) running one (or all) of her three boys around. She dreams of the day when she will have the time to pursue flying again and looks forward to every opportunity that presents itself to ride a roller-coaster.
