High Achiever of the Month - February 2020

J Brad Ratel, Territory Manager Alberta/Senior Outside Sales BC
Code Electric Products Ltd.

We would like to recognize Brad Ratel for receiving the High Achiever recognition for February! He has done some amazing things for our industry and in his personal life.

We all know Brad as an enthusiastic, energetic and talented sales rep working to promote Code Electric’s products in our industry by reaching out to our partner distributors and end users. Brad participates and promotes BCEA events and is always willing to lend a helping hand. He sits on the EFC YPN committee and provides leadership and assistance to many BCEA committees and for that we are grateful thankful.

What many people don’t know is that he works tireless in his free time to support the Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation. Korle-Bu Neuroscience Foundation (KBNF) is a Canadian charity enhancing the delivery of quality brain and spinal medical care in West Africa and beyond. There vision is to alleviate the suffering of West Africans with a special focus on those affected by diseases of the brain and spine, and to address related health care issues.

He has spent his evenings and weekends collecting equipment and supplies from hospital donations, stuffing trailers at “the barn” in Delta where they prepare container shipments to Africa.

Take a look at the KBNF website, and if you look carefully you may see Brad working diligently in the background.

Brad represents the talent and dedication we are looking for in a member of our association, industry and contributions to society. Congratulations Brad!

Get your nominations in for next month!
