SAVE THE DATE (S) - ABFI is committed to the health and safety of all of our constituents and during these uncertain times, acknowledge that this event may need to move to an online platform. We are actively preparing for all scenarios to ensure that this unique family learning experience will be as educational and impactful as past Signature Events. We will release further details on the format and pricing as soon as they are available.
The annual Signature event of the University of Alberta School of Business, Alberta Business Family Institute (ABFI) has quickly become a must attend event for business families and their advisors in Alberta. This year marks our 18th Annual Signature Event and we will be celebrating the extraordinary achievements of the Hay Family of Scandinavian Building Services.
Come and Meet the Family
Scandinavian Building Services was established in 1956 as a
small janitorial company in Edmonton, Alberta. It has been owned and operated
by the Hay family since 1982. They have established a significant presence
across Canada, earning a “spotless reputation” and serving a growing list of
clients including Canada’s largest retail and commercial companies, fitness
facilities, iconic sports complexes, shopping malls, and more.
This year, Signature 2020 will be delivered in an all NEW format. Join us in a moderated conversation with one of the founders, Wilda Hay, and second-generation participants Russell Hay, Melanie Brooks and Candace Elford as we discuss the successes and challenges of their transition.
This extraordinary family is recognized as a leader in family business as they continue to be inspired by their late founder, leader and CEO Terry Hay (1952-2018). They have a business that embraces two generations and spans 30 years of service. Their high standards -and total commitment to providing the best client service in the business-permeate the entire organization.
As one past attendee indicated, “it doesn’t feel like a fundraiser, it feels like an educational opportunity.” Everyone will learn from hearing the Hay family story.
