Many of our customers have met Simon Mangos.  He has come a long way in the last 2 years and has become Shepherd’s highest performing sales representative.  He exemplifies the technical sales approach to growing our business.

Unless he is prodded into it, Simon won’t talk about his career in hockey. In life  before Shepherd he spent 12 very successful years playing US college and professional hockey here and in the UK. You can go to this  (link)  for his career stats but here are the highlights:

– League title with Brampton Capitals and All Star MVP
– League title at Ferris University and made the all conference team
– All Star while in Manchester, England (yes they have a pro league there)
– League title in Shreveport his last year and finalist for defenceman of the year
– 3 items in the Hockey Hall of Fame

If you were one of the 25 people who attended the latest Shepherd Thermoforming Seminar you witnessed Simon’s thermoforming knowledge in his 90 minute presentation. His ambition and drive was evident in 2005 when he was first hired for the summer in our Engineering department. He realized at that time that hockey was not a life-long career for him and had completed courses at Humber College in CAD. Five years later he contacted us and the rest as they say, is history.

Simon is an All Star with Shepherd Thermoforming now. Give him a call and he will talk hockey with you for hours. And yes he has played with guys that we now see in the NHL like Chris Kunitz playing for the Canadian Olympic team.  905-459-4545 ext. 233 or
