Meet the Team

Management

Diya

Owner

Mr. Rashmawi developed an early interest in the automotive field and went ahead to embrace every category within it. During College he was able to complete what is called The Map40 Diploma despite a very high failure level. It entailed all three years of the technology course and he completed it in only 40 weeks. Being heavily congested with work and school for 18 hours every day became the norm which led to seeking better time management and multi-tasking to achieve even more. He went on to obtain his Automotive and Truck Mechanic Licenses in his early twenties which made him among the youngest licensed mechanics in Canada.

Mr. Rashmawi is a perfectionist who always says, “Do it right once or don’t do it at all”. He is a self-made entrepreneur who started at the age of 14 and never stopped seeking education in so many different fields to possess a mass knowledge. His goal is to create an extraordinary buying experience like no other. He is also very proud and grateful for his amazing team and family. He has a passion for marketing where he blends spontaneity with creativity to cook the perfect recipe for success.

Mr. Rashmawi never stops taking the initiative to seek higher education and expert mentorship in a variety of fields but also best practices in web exposure, social media & google algorithm. Always prioritizing honesty, integrity and happiness he strives to achieve this harmonious balance. He truly believes God has given us two ears and one mouth for a reason, it is to listen more than we speak. Being the youngest sibling has given him a deep appreciation for never taking anything for granted and understands the value of money. It also gave him the ability to train himself to look on the better side of life instead of focusing on the problems. He also believes that seeking wisdom is very expensive yet cannot be bought. He has checked off all of his goals on his bucket list and achieved his dreams but has moved on to new and bigger ones. Every day that goes by he realizes the wisdom to balance between life and happiness.

His interests include seadooing, boating, fishing, hunting, traveling, playing drums, soccer and body building. He also enjoys shows like Suits along with the Fast and The Furious and Harry Potter franchises. He loves to take part in quarter-mile racing, driving exotics, is a car buff and involved in charity events.
