Grantek’s Founder, Doug Grant was an Entrepreneur from an Early Age
July 10, 2017
Grantek’s founder, Doug Grant, appeared in ‘Hamilton Spectator’ newspaper, in an article celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. At the time of the photo, Doug was about 10 years old; he delivered the paper in the west end of Hamilton Ontario. As a result of having the most subscriptions of all the carriers in Hamilton, Doug won the bike in the photo!
As quoted by Doug’s brother Paul Grant … “…I believe the lessons he learned in those early years: Consistency – on time every day, 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Business Sense – carriers not only delivered the papers but collected the payments in those days. Overcoming adversity – I well remember Doug, Dad and I getting the SPEC out the day Hurricane Hazel struck — all contributed to making the honorable and successful man Doug became.”
