The Global Coin Solutions team has over 20 years of experience working with organizations collecting foreign currency for charity. During this time, they have collected and processed over 200,000kg in collections worth over $20 Million! If you are looking for a new fundraising opportunity for your charity, you have come to the right place!
Scott's passion to help charities raise funds has driven him to push the envelope. While this type of collection is a natural for the airlines and airports, it is something completely new in Canada and the US. With current projections showing foreign currency at over $750 Million in Canada and over $10 Billion in the US, this is a fundraising segment that has vast potential!
Scott's business background includes over a dozen years with IBM / Lenovo, working in virtually every area of the PC business including long stints in sales, marketing, and finance. He has also spent several years in small business management and development.
Maribel (Bel) has been sorting currency for over 10 years and is responsible for developing some of the sorting techniques that make the GCS operation so effective. She manages a small but highly driven team.
J.P. is the newest full-time member of our team having joined us full time in March of 2018. He has worked with GCS for almost 2 years prior to that in various capacities. He has brought a fresh outlook to our processes and is a great team worker.
Fabio is our newest employee having joined us less than 6 months ago. He is also part time.
Our part time staff is Autistic and has been chosen specifically for his abilities. He is most comfortable doing repetitive tasks and we have quite a few. This is a win / win scenario for GCS - we have a need and Fabio is the solution.

Cash is still the most attractive means of payment for a huge majority of people worldwide. Cash ensures stable currency systems. It is not only the most secure means of payment and resilient in terms of crisis, it also reflects a nation’s identity as banknotes and coins are often a nation’s calling card, valued by people beyond their monetary worth.
