Collette Celebrates, Helps Out


Collette donated $5,000 to the Breakfast Club of Canada last night as part of its 25th anniversary in Canada celebrations at a special reception at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

The family run, US-based company expanded its operations into Canada in 1989, opening an office in the basement of the Royal York Hotel. They now have a Canadian team of more than 30 staff, with nine sales representatives covering Canada from coast to coast.

On top of the $5,000 donation, presented by Dan Sullivan, Jr. (pictured, left), Collette CEO and president, Collette Canada added $25 per person more for those attending the celebratory reception.

Pictured with Sullivan are Trish Starling, of the Breakfast Club of Canada, and Brett Walker, general manager of Collette in Canada, who has been with the company since its inception in Canada in 1989.

Walker told PressToday he’s thrilled with the success Collette has had in Canada.

“It’s been a lot of hard work, but there’s a lot of great memories,” he said. “We’ve always been a four-star company providing five-star service.”

He added that agents have always supported the Collette brand and appreciate the company’s “no discounting” policy.
