MEET THE MANAGEMENT AT BIG BOY’S TOYS LTD.

Ian Moore
Owner/Dealer Principal

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.
