DEBBIE MIDDLETON – Office Manager
When the company she was working for was in the process of being sold, Debbie started her career in the trucking industry with one simple question, “Do you need any help at the shop, dad?” She assisted with the paperwork at her father’s company, J.R. Rentals, and the rest is history. When J.R. Rentals was sold to Calmont Leasing, she worked there for the ten years of its existence in Burnaby. At Calmont, Debbie was responsible for the accounts receivable, accounts payable, management of all accounts, banking, vendor payments, rentals, leasing invoices and the overall flow of the office.
When Calmont Leasing was sold and Dieseltech took over on April 1, 2008, Debbie was one of four Calmont employees to come over to Dieseltech. Those four employees are still with Dieseltech today. Debbie continues her office management at Dieseltech, and has been known as the friendly, familiar face of the company since the doors opened.
As an outdoor enthusiast, Debbie can be found on weekends up at her family cabin, or on a trail in North Vancouver with her best buddy, her dog – Marley.
