Andrew Rivers

Director, Operations CPC Central & West, Canada Post

What was your childhood ambition?

Anything involving cars, machines, and building things.  I used to build my own remote control cars from complex kits.  I had (and still do) a love of cars and anything mechanical.  I was also a big sports fan, and enjoyed playing whatever sports I could.

What’s your proudest personal achievement so far?

Professionally – I think my proudest achievement so far would be my appointment to the role of a Regional Program Manager, which happened back in August 2012.  I came to Morneau Shepell with aspirations to become a leader and to be able to earn a leadership role – and I was able to do that here.  Since then, I have been fortunate enough to be promoted further – and while I’m also exceptionally proud of my new role, I feel as though my promotion to RPM was a critical step for me, and one that I was working towards for some time.

Personally – my proudest achievements include my family (my beautiful wife of 9 years, and 7 year old son), being a husband and a father, and my successful completion of a half-marathon last year in Chicago, USA.
