Paul Leckey
Human Resources Management
Graduated 2010 
 

Since graduating with a Post-Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management, Paul Leckey has rapidly built a career as a corporate headhunter in the financial services sector.

“Making the most of the internships offered by George Brown was integral to my early success,” Paul explains. “I accepted a placement with a generalist staffing firm, and though I knew little about the industry at the time, I felt the topics covered in my George Brown program were transferable to the role.” This intuition proved correct, and within a year Paul was promoted twice. He recently accepted a role as a Specialized Recruitment Consultant at IQ Partners Financial, a highly regarded executive search firm in Toronto’s financial district.

Roger Mooking
Culinary Management
 

Winning the 2012 Premier’s Award for Creative Arts and Design is Roger Mooking's  latest achievement in a multi-faceted career.  Born in Trinidad to a family of restaurateurs, Roger grew up in the business.  When the family relocated to Edmonton, he used the money he earned from working in his parents’ restaurants to make music at a local recording studio. After a successful musical career, he decided to return to his first love – cooking.  “I wanted to be a chef from the age of three,” Roger says. “But even though I had plenty of kitchen experience I knew I had to learn more about the restaurant business itself.” 

 Roger credits George Brown’s rigorous Culinary Management program, which included preparing a 250-page restaurant concept, for giving him the full set of skills he needed to open and run top-rated restaurants in Toronto.

Drew Ferraro 
Dental Technology
Graduated 2000
 

Not many people are thrust into the role of running the family business at the age of 22.  But this was the case for Drew Ferraro when, in 1999, his father passed away leaving behind a thriving orthodontics company.  At the time, Drew was in the second year of the Dental Technologist program at George Brown College to try a profession he had only decided to pursue a few years earlier.
“There is no better place to go for Dental Technology than George Brown College,” says Ferraro.
