Why I want to be a BBB Ambassador:
Almost every day, I receive phone calls from leads that have done business with non-accredited marketing agencies which in turn has gone absolutely sour. For a business owner and consumer, every cent counts when putting that towards a business. Money doesn’t grow on trees, so why throw it away to a business that doesn’t know what they’re doing and can’t fulfill their obligations. On countless occasions, businesses come to me after a bad relationship with past companies calling themselves professional marketing agencies and then those companies, just disappear into thin air. Illegitimate and non-accredited businesses have approached me in the past for services and haven’t fulfilled their end of the deal which unfortunately takes a toll on the agencies bottom line. With BBB Accreditation, businesses now have another way to ensure that their B2B relationship is legitimate and consumers know which agencies and businesses to trust, and which to stay away from or double check before doing business with. I want to be a part of this great effort pushing trustworthy and legitimate businesses towards BBB accreditation to enhance the B2B and B2C relationships.
Dan is a life science professional with over 5 years experience. After graduating from SFU in 2011 he worked in both research and industrial laboratories and is currently a microbiologist at an analytical lab. While he excels in his current role, over the years he began to realize his true passion lies in sales, entrepreneurship, and networking.

After eight years in the construction industry, Todd was in an accident that left him unable to continue his career. Having a passion for construction, he took the opportunity to enroll in the Architecture and Building Education Program at BCIT in order to stay in the industry he loves. In 2014 he took his education and experience and started a drafting services business. Aspect Designs was born.
Aspect Design's focus is to provide each client with a service that best suits them. From a full custom design, tenant improvement, or a small project, we want homeowners and developers to feel confident that their vision will be heard and understood.
Todd wanted to be a part of our Ambassador program because he believes the best way to grow a business and reputation is to get out and meet people face to face.
"By Partnering with BBB to do this I tink it will benefit each of us as I get to explain to people what I do and why I am a member of an organization that pursues and encourages business standards that are above reproach." - Todd Reavley

Growing up in Vancouver my entire life, I’ve seen this city change and grow. Not only has our city changed, but so has the way we do business in Vancouver and worldwide. This is the same with employee benefits and pensions. I have been in the employee benefits industry for almost 20 years. Having worked at a major insurance company in Canada and now with Signet Financial Group as an owner has given me the skills, tools, and knowledge needed to give the best advice to our clients. I have learned that no matter how automated our industry gets, it is still VERY important to have the human touch and know that you can call me when there’s a question or concern. We work very closely with all of our clients to make sure that their benefits and pensions needs are met at the best possible price. I look forward to meeting you.

We are in a position to provide you with all the services required for the successful operation of your Group Benefits program.
