Our People

Benoit Petit (Ben)

As the leader or person with the vision, the responsibility of making things happen has been huge for Ben. It’s obviously a challenge Ben embraces as he does with all that he encounters in life. Having been a Property Developer and also a painter in past lives, Ben treats property maintenance as an art rather than a job. And when it comes to clients he likes to think he’s serving up a solution for them as opposed to “just doing a job.”
