My name is Andrew Gubbels and I am the co-owner of Padgett Orillia and Barrie locations. In 2000 I had the pleasure of partnering with Nancy Stabback and helping to grow Padgett into what it is today. My background is in business leadership, management, and consulting. I have walked the long hard road of entrepreneurship and understand the challenges small business owners face day to day.
I serve on the Padgett Advisory Board that regularly meets to discuss the concerns of more than 400 franchises across North America. I am also active in local business groups that help small businesses grow their visibility, credibility, and profitability.
My name is Nancy Stabback and I am the proud co-owner of Padgett Orillia and Barrie locations. In 1998, I made a decision to invest in the Padgett Business Services franchise in Barrie. In doing so I joined strength with over 400 other Accounting Professionals across Canada and the United States. I have personally owned and operated small businesses including restaurants, a general store and income properties. I know how small business owners think and can use my experience and expertise to help them overcome the many hurdles they encounter on an ongoing basis.
I am active in local business groups and service clubs, and volunteer with a local small business training group to help future business owners get a solid start with their new venture. I also serve on the Padgett Advisory Board.
