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 for charities in Canada and the US.
With current projections showing foreign currency at over $2 Billion 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. 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 supervises a small but highly driven team.
