Sandy Aird

Financial Advisor

I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in England in 1966. Following some post-qualifying experience I joined the UK business forms company of Lamson Industries – later to be taken over by the worlds largest printer of business forms, Toronto based Moore Corporation, with subsidiaries in the US and in all the major international countries of the world.

Working up the corporate ladder in the UK as the Chief Accountant of an Engineering subsidiary in the group, to the Deputy Controller of the European Division, I was transferred to the Toronto Head Office as Finance Director of the International Division. In due course the International HO was transferred to Lausanne, Switzerland. Unfortunately, the advent of the paperless office caused the demise of Moore Corporation and I was made redundant after some 25 years with the corporation.

For some 5 years thereafter I owned a small printing company in Kent, England, before selling it and returning to Canada in 1998. I worked as the VP Finance for a hi-tech electronic bingo manufacturer here in Vancouver for 4 years. For the next 5 years I managed the financial affairs of a logging company, the multiple property investments and the financial investments of a private wealthy family in West Vancouver.

Currently, I have a number of private clients for whom I provide varying levels of financial advice and book-keeping.
