Sonepar - MasonTom Mason is not good at standing still. Now in his 21st year with Sonepar Canada,* Mason has progressed through seven different positions, starting in an automation/engineering capacity. At one point Mason even tried to quit so that he could stay home with his new daughter while his wife returned to work. However, the company refused his resignation and instead created a new part-time corporate role in marketing and business development that he could fulfill from a home office. When his daughter was old enough for daycare, Mason resumed full-time work. Today he is Sonepar Canada’s Director of Communications and Business Development, based in Mississauga, ON.

Daniel Peloquin, President of Schneider-Electric Canada, is one of those people. You know the TV commercial about the cereal with two different sides? This is the impression you get of Daniel Peloquin. No wonder one of his daughters works with Cirque du Soleil and the other in the financial industry — both sides of the president of Schneider Electric Canada.
