The Principal, Bill Mauger, recognized the need for a professional handyman service, and in 2006, created Your Local Handyman with several objectives in mind.
First, he wanted to serve the home repair and renovation needs of his local community. Instead of specializing on a specific trade, he decided to focus on becoming a professional problem solver. With his background of growing up in a large family skilled in a multitude of trades, he created a business that could address a variety of home repair & renovations needs for his customers.
Second, he wanted to create a successful and duplicatable business model to enable "would be" handymen (and women) to have an opportunity to thrive and be able to support their families. (Bill is a single parent, and has been the sole provider of his family for over a decade).
Finally, he wanted to develop his brand as a recognizable home repair franchise and feel content in the knowledge that he is (in part) responsible for helping thousands of people provide for their very own families.
Bill Mauger, originally from Nova Scotia, was brought up in a large family of lifelong trades professionals and businessmen. Skilled, comfortable, and fluent in many trades, he moved to the Lower Mainland area of British Columbia in 1992. Bill has an impressive resume, including serving his country for eleven years in the Canadian Armed Forces. He has volunteered with many service clubs and business organizations. However, he feels his greatest accomplishment, is maintaining a great relationship with his son... for which he proudly earns the title...DAD.
