I’m happy to share an interview with one of the members of the Sharpshooter Funding (SSF) family with you. He is truly one of sweetest people I talk to, and we both love the language of Molière! It’s fun to share this interest in the beautiful French language with someone.
His name is Gregg Farineau and he is the Director of Sales at Sharpshooter Funding.
What do you like most about Montreal?
Well, I have been to Montreal only once, about 10 years ago. I am from France and old Montreal reminded me of back home quite a bit. I also thought the night life was unreal! We went out to Club Opera as well as the W Hotel, and a few other spots I really enjoyed. The city definitely has a lot to offer.
Now you have joined the dream team, I’m talking about The Sharpshooter Funding team. How did it happen?
Well, I have known Dallas for over 20 years and I knew about Sharpshooter right away when it started so I asked him if there was ever an opportunity for me to jump on board to let me know. The opportunity came around January of 2017 when Paul asked Dallas if he knew anyone who speaks French, as there was a lot of potential business coming out of Quebec so I joined the team without hesitation.
Do you have plans to expand your services to small companies in Quebec?
We are offering our services to all businesses in Quebec, we just require that you have been in business for at least six (6) months, so that we can show you what we can offer you in terms of working capital options.
Since I love talking about sports and music, can you tell us which NFL team you are rooting for to win the Super Bowl (The Steelers, I hope)?
I would have to say the Baltimore Ravens, I was always a Ray Lewis fan and since we have a few players (past and present) from the team helping represent us they are my pick for the Super Bowl.
The Ravens have beaten The Steelers this weekend, I’m a little sad… Oh well, I wonder if they may face each other during the Playoffs. It’s really cool to see that some players (past and present) from the Ravens are supporting the Dream Team. My next question is about music. Let’s see what he says….
You seem to be a big music fan, what is the best memory you have from a concert?
There have been so many great moments at music festivals and concerts that I have been fortunate enough to attend; it would be hard to narrow it down to one. I would have to say Empire of the Sun at Ultra Music Festival in Miami (2014) or the M83 in concert in Calgary last year were the two that come to mind right away.
My last question is what makes the SSF team The Dream Team?
Well, I think we work well together as we have all the pieces to make this a successful company. We have Bret as our spokesman as the majority of Canadians know who he is, myself and Dallas are motivated, hard workers and Paul is the whole brains of this operation who has an unrelenting work ethic. All these things combined make this a success and hopefully we can keep growing and keep helping as many businesses across Canada for years to come.
Thank you Gregg for this nice and cool interview!
Last night, Dallas Hart and Gregg were at a fundraiser for The Sait Chinook Lodge Foundation. This foundation is promoting education for the Indigenous community.
You can actually exclusively some pictures of this special event. I would like to thank the SSF ”Sharpshooter Funding” team to share with us those pictures.
I’m very proud that the Sharpshooter team is getting involve with some amazing Canadian charities.
It’s a pleasure interviewing the members of The Dream Team. More interviews will come on The Chronicle about their ventures and we will add in it some Pop Culture references, sharing some music knowledge and others interesting subjects to talk about.
Let’s the beat goes on!
By the way, pink is a really cool colour.
