Adopted Trail: Emma Peel | Sumas Mountain, Abbotsford
“I remember as a kid, my Mom & Dad telling me over and over again how lucky we were to live in the Fraser Valley. They had come over from Great Britain in the early 70’s and chosen this place to start a family. They were wowed by the mountains, the view of Mt. Baker, the rushing rivers, and the chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors. As a kid, I took it for granted, and yet here I am many years later, telling my own kids how lucky we are to live in this beautiful place, and taking every chance I can to get out there on my bike or in my hiking shoes.”
Cam Hall, owner of Connect Solutions, knows the local trail system well, and jumped at the chance to sponsor Emma Peele, on Sumas Mountain. He and his wife, along with their sons are often out enjoying the trails, and he felt like this was his chance to give back. Thanks to their support, this trail is maintained by trail crews that keep it in tip top shape, so that it can be enjoyed for years to come.
Connect Solutions provides IT support to small and medium sized businesses in the Fraser Valley. Their customers range from businesses with just a few employees to companies with over 150 employees and multiple locations. No matter the size of the customer, their focus is to provide top notch support, quick response times, and the best service around. “So many businesses fight technology, but with the right support team, technology can take your business to the next level.”
With technology constantly changing, the team at Connect Solutions knows their customers are relying on them for the answers. Hall says the biggest concern of business owners these days tends to be security, and that’s an area where they’re investing significant resources.
When asked what makes Connect Solutions different than other IT companies, and what he enjoys most about his business, Hall says “We put a lot of time and effort into getting to know our customers and working alongside them. We take a lot of pride in seeing our customers’ businesses grow, as we love showing them how technology can work for them, and not against them. There’s nothing better than knowing we contributed to our customers’ success.”
In much the same way, Connect Solutions is investing in our shared green space, so that we all have the ability to enjoy it. “I’m so thankful to own a successful business, work with great customers and an amazing team, and to be able to enjoy the outdoors with my family in this beautiful part of B.C. I love what the FVMBA is doing and what they’re about and we’re excited to team up with them on this sponsorship. See you on the trails!”
