PORTRAIT

Murray Flegel
CEO, Boss Lubricants
"I really couldn't have asked for too much more. I had a
pretty good taste of the U.S. and Canada from east to
west from about the late '60's until the early '80's because
of my hockey career. I got to live in everything from rented
apartments to nice houses. I was lucky enough to be married to Arlene for nine out of those 10 years playing hockey.
Between our kids and grandkids, we've got a lot of good
things, and in one more year Arlene and I will have been
married for 50 years. Disney cruise here we come!"

Family Since the Beginning
"Boss Lubricants started in '92 with my wife. She managed the
administration office back when it was just her - now, we've
got 104 staff members in 10 locations all across Canada. My two
sons, Jarrett and Brad, also stayed really close to the business
from the beginning until eventually working their way to president and vice president, respectively. We all work extremely well
together. It's been fun ever since the beginning!"

Music on the Side
"I've got a pretty vast mix of musicians in my family on both
sides stretching over a few generations. There's a 16-piece
orchestra, a number of bands and various genres between all
of us. When I was younger, being as I was the nephew who liked
to sit in while everyone was playing, it didn't take me long to
pick up an instrument and follow suit. When I became a career
hockey player, I got to play guitar with bands in various bars
all across the continent. Now that I'm settled into one place, my
friends and I have been fortunate enough to play along with
musicians from acts like the Eagles, Blue Rodeo, Roy Orbison,
Chuck Berry, Keith Urban and Travis Tritt."

Hard work and determination
will bring success and victory.

A Perfect Time for Hockey
"I think I lived through a perfect era in the timeline of hockey. I
played all across the U.S. and made plenty of friends along the
way, but my all-time favorite places to have lived and played
hockey in was Omaha, Neb. (though Houston and Salt Lake City
were a close second and third). Some of those friends were baseball players, hockey players, football players and coaches, some
of them were musicians or just friendly neighbors, but I can't
imagine my life without all of them. A lot of the lubricant industry is made up of family and privately owned businesses. That's
what feels really similar to me in the lube industry compared to
back when I was a career athlete; the whole industry feels like a
close network of families - all good people."
