ROAD WARRIOR

M

y name is Kevin Fookes, I have been employed on the Coast sales team for almost
two years. I am responsible for Northern Vancouver Island, as well as some
accounts in the Central region. I look after Port Alberni and the Broken Islands
as well.
Before being employed by Coast, I was a part owner in our family's Door and
Window business. When my father retired, I was approached by a small financial institution to
look after their bank machines. When the opportunity with Coast became available, I jumped at
the chance and am glad I did.
I travel every day and also have to overnight a couple of days a month. Twice a month I travel
Kevin Fookes,
to Powell River. I am on the ferries way too often.
I do get to eat yummy fast food, but once in a while I give my body a break and eat something Coast Distributors
good for me. When I do have to overnight I stay at the Glen Lion in Port Hardy. Nice clean
rooms and friendly staff, plus they give me the same room every time which is very much appreciated.
I believe with regular visits, the sky is the limit in my territory. I love to travel up and down the island visiting with my
friends and see the most beautiful parts of Vancouver Island.
Outside of work I like to spend time with my lovely wife Yolanda and our awesome dog Macey. We don't have children,
thank god! I love to play golf and with my RC vehicles with my buddies.
Yolanda and I try to visit a different destination every year and take the dog with us whenever we can. We also like to
buy old furniture and refinish it.
