Kyle is the newest member to the Ethos team, but is a familiar face around Ethos Developments. Having helped scale and manage one of the largest residential landscaping companies in Ottawa for Adam, he has proven himself to be a strong resource for business growth and development. More recently he was recruited to help introduce and develop a pilot program for the tech giant Best Buy where they piloted the In-Home Consultation Program and got the approval for a national program.
