President - Randall Linton
Ever since The Rotary Club of North York was chartered in 1991, I have been a proud member. In fact, I was the second new member added to their membership, after Dr. John Ramage, who beat me by one month.
This year I am honoured to be back as President of The Rotary Club of North York, a position I first held back in 2003-2004. I guess you could say I'm hoping to get it right this time. I am a lifetime Torontonian, a city I am proud to call home.
I am the co-owner of two contract maintenance companies here in Toronto: Interior Care and ServiceNational Canada. Each company provides a variety of services for corporate offices, condominiums and retail stores across Canada.
Outside of business and Rotary, I have enjoyed serving the community in a variety of ways. I’ve invested in the lives of younger generations from coaching basketball, teaching Sunday School, and leading youth groups and College and Careers. A recent passion of mine is coaching young leaders through a program called Launch, a ministry of Youth Unlimited.
I'm a former Board member of The Canadian MPS Society and together with my wife and fellow Rotarian, Elisabeth, we are the co-founders and directors of The Sanfilippo Children’s Research Foundation.
I’ve been humbled by the recognition of several industry and humanitarian awards. These include, The ICS Ralph Bloss Humanitarian Award, The Toronto Marathon Human Spirit Award, CONNEX Canadian Excellence Award, The Floorcovering Institute of Ontario’s Humanitarian and Industry Leadership Award, and Sri Aathi Hindu Temple’s Community Service and Humanitarian Award.
However, one of my biggest honours was receiving Rotary International’s prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship Award at the same time as my wife, Elisabeth, in 2005.
My hobbies include downhill skiing, running, biking, reading, writing, golf, hockey, travel, and curled up with Lis and a bowl of popcorn watching a favorite TV series or movie. My greatest joy however, is spending time anywhere with my family.
Elisabeth and I are parents to two adult children and are very proud grandparents of two granddaughters.
