Brian comes from a family of successful entrepreneurs and understands that hard work and commitment are the foundations for any business. Brian had a successful 20 year career as a Project Manager in the construction industry before focusing solely on his niche markets. In 1978 he began constructing cupolas and founded Waterloo Cupola, Column and Woodworking. In 1989 he launched Custom Cupola Mfg. Co. in Oakville, ON and specialized in residential and commercial cupolas. With hard work and determination, as well as the help of his wife Lee and dedicated employees, he has built Custom Cupola & Steeple Co. Ltd. to what it is today.

An avid outdoorsman, Brian has a passion for all things in nature. In his spare time he and his sons like to spend time up north at their hunting camp. Brian is an avid fisherman as well and enjoys fishing out of Bronte Harbour with his boys. He regularly searches the lakes of the north for bass, pike, muskie and speckled Quebec trout. As well, he enjoys traveling the United States and Canada with his hunting buddies. Brian has been an avid marksman since his youth and has competed in Bisley, England for the Canadian Team in the International Shooting Championships and was previously a junior Quebec marksman. Skeet and trap shooting are also a passion.

Brian has an entrepreneurial flair that has been the cornerstone of the business since its inception. He has assembled a strong team of leaders and craftsmen that are capable of producing some of the most unique projects that many other firms may be incapable of undertaking. Brian has accomplished many difficult and complex projects that were one of a kind endeavours and developed revolutionary construction methods that allowed for the efficient construction of some very unique domes, steeples, minaret towers and large cupolas.

Brian has fostered relationships with a large diversity of religious organizations throughout his 40 plus years in business and continues to serve this specialized clientele with individual attention and a genuine desire to provide the best services available anywhere.
