It is more than okay to work hard to get things that you want out of life. In fact, this hard work and make the things that you earn even more special. When you get handed something that you’ve been working for without completing network it can be a very disappointing moment. Gregory J Aziz understood that working hard for something and creating something would trigger a sense of fulfillment that would be unmatched by any joy obtained by the item itself. He wanted to earn that sense of fulfillment on his own. This is one of the reasons why he undertook the heavy project of revamping National Steel Car.
Gregory James Aziz is a graduate of Ridley College and the University of Western Ontario. While there he obtained a degree in economics, a subject for which he had been passionate about for many years. This degree helped lay the foundation for a career that would be full of unique business decisions. One of the first ones that he needed to make was whether or not he wanted to work at his family’s company. The company, Affiliated Foods, was doing well and his family wanted him to learn the business. While there he was never a recipient of any kind of nepotism and he worked his way up from the bottom. It was a time of tremendous growth for Gregory Aziz.
While Gregory Aziz was learning a lot from his parents’ company, National Steel Car was going through a period of steady decline. Dofasco did not have the resources to develop the company in a way that would be profitable for them. Gregory Aziz saw that they had trouble with this and offered to purchase the company. The fast go had been looking to sell for some time and in 1994 the company changed hands. Gregory James Aziz became the owner and CEO of National Steel Car.
His happiness at purchasing the business was short-lived because he learned that it was in peril. His acute business acumen kicked in and he turned the company around 180°. National Steel Car has earned a lot of respect over the last two years because of how well they did at bouncing back. They not only secured themselves as a major manufacturer once more, but they climbed to the top of the pile rather quickly. This is something for which Gregory J Aziz is most proud.
