Gregory James Aziz is only 68 years old as he was born on 30th April 1949. He is an entrepreneur and investor, who borrowed most of his business skills from his father, the owner of Food Affiliate Company that deals with importing food from other regions and distributing it in Canada and America. Greg Aziz constantly offered minor services in the firm; therefore, he was acquainted with business from an early age. However, James Aziz’s parents were also hesitant to let him take major roles in the company until the time he graduated from campus. They then felt that he was ready for business, making him the general manager of Food Affiliates Company in 1984. In Greg’s tenure as manager, the firm expanded to import food from Europe, Central and South America, and distributing it to regions of Canada and United States. The profitability and employment level of the firm highly rose during the season, earning Greg several recognitions and awards. However, in the late 1980s, he decided to pursue a career in the investments and banking industry where he stayed until 1994. As he quit the industry, he bought the National Steel Car Company from its previous owner Dofasco. His vision was to improve the quality and quantity of production from the company. He also wanted to make the customers of the car company more satisfied. Find More Information Here.
Greg Aziz put in ample effort so that the production of the company rose from 3500 cars annually to 9000 cars each year. To match the risen quantity, Greg employed more workers with the workforce rising from 600 to 3000 employees. The corporate culture was also interfered with as Greg asked the workers to be the customer and not profit oriented. To achieve the above, Greg asked the workers to manufacture all products according to the customers’ specifications. The above demanded extensive research to be conducted to tell what the needs of the customers were; it helped in making certain that new products were customized. Because of the above, the company also enjoyed more sales and profitability as customers flocked the premises in larger numbers.

At the same time, he says that their combined effort makes the firm profitable. Secondly, he loves the customers without whom he says there would be no sales.
