Meet Ian Potter

1. How long have you been with our company?

1 year 2 months.

2. What is your title and role at Canadian Energy?

Territory Manager Toronto.

3. What’s the best thing about coming to work every day? 

Having an opportunity to be successful. Sales will always provide an opportunity for challenge, learning, growth and success.

4. What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to someone who is just getting started with our Company?

Don’t waste time. Give it your all. There are always connections to be made, relationships to develop, business to be discussed, and money to be made.

5. What’s the reason you’ve stayed with CE so long?

CE has continued to provide me with the opportunity to be successful.  CE celebrates success, which encourages growth.

6. What is your motto or personal mantra?

If you don’t ask, you won't receive. In the business of sales, you must be confident and prepared to always ask. If you don’t ask, you can guarantee that the answer will be no. 

7. What is your favourite movie?

Top Gun. Whose isn’t?

8. Who is your favourite band or singer?

Tribe Called Quest, they are unique, creative, and fun. They give a good vibe. Have a listen.

9. If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see star as you?

Leonardo DiCaprio: He looks the part. He rode a sinking ship. He survived a bear attack. He was the Wolf of Wall Street. He should be able to handle the role.

10. If you could meet anyone in the world dead or alive who would it be and why?

Steve Yzerman. He was my favorite hockey player and idol growing up.

11. If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Prime rib, lobster, shrimp and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon would be the menu.

12. If it could help with your job, what super power would you like to have?

The ability to make every potential customer agree to sign on with CE. It would make closed loops a sure thing!

13. Who do you nominate for our interview next month?

I nominate Mark Gibson.

Thank you Ian. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to the company every day!
