Francine Gall, COO of Acapulco Pools, a Kitchener, Ont.-based pool contractor, has been named one of Canada’s top entrepreneurs in the 2017 Quantam Shift Program.
As the company’s COO, Gall is responsible for strategic and day-to-day management of the organization.
“It is a privilege that KPMG nominated me for this recognition and program,” she said. “It was a great experience to have the opportunity to meet other top entrepreneur’s across Canada in various fields of business.”
Gall attended the University of Western Ontario and completed an undergraduate degree in media information technology in 2009. After graduation, she started her career at IMAX Corporation where she worked in theatre services and global brand marketing divisions. After attending a Tony Robbins seminar, Gall realized her entrepreneurial spirit could not be fulfilled in her current role. Shortly thereafter she decided to join Acapulco Pools, a family run business, where she has taken over full ownership of the company.
“Francine represents a new generation of leadership at the company,” said the company’s marketing co-ordinator, Charlotte Swart. “Her confidence, openness, and appreciation for creativity make it an exciting time to be part of the Acapulco Pools family.”
