Terry Barrett – Director
Living in Uxbridge since 1966, I have always been an entrepreneur at heart. I built my own ski tow on our farm at age 16 and went on to building handcrafted Log and Timber Homes from age 18-24. In my youth I had enjoyed dirt biking and supported myself by cutting a few lawns around town. That lead to a professional motocross career post-secondary school which lead to promoting Motocross Racing events throughout the 80’s and 90’s. One of these events was held in Elgin Park and attracted riders from all over the world with 10k spectators. I also managed a high end Cabinet making and Custom home building business during that time. After an early retirement in 2005 I moved back into a more sedentary role as a Financial Consultant with I.G. Wealth Management and now help clients manage their own risks. Something I seem to know a lot about.
