Norelco's President - Peter Raja
Peter embarked on his career in residential construction and related trades back in 1978, quickly assuming management positions at building supply stores in Northern, BC, Canada. In 1994, Peter and his wife made a significant decision to relocate to Kelowna, BC, where they ventured into new business endeavors.
Not long after settling in Kelowna, Peter took on the role of District Sales Manager for Nelson Homes. Within a year, he expanded his expertise into the export market for engineered panelized homes. Recognizing the exceptional quality produced by Norelco Cabinets, Peter, along with two partners, acquired the company, having been long-standing customers and admirers of its products.
Since 2002, Peter has served as President of Norelco Cabinets, skillfully transforming a small cabinet manufacturing plant employing 20 individuals into a thriving 60,000 square feet facility that now provides employment to over 150 people. Peter's visionary leadership has allowed Norelco to flourish internationally, with the company currently manufacturing and delivering cabinetry for high-end luxury projects throughout Western USA, including the Hawaii islands. As the Export Hawaiian Sales Manager for this division, Peter plays a vital role in expanding business into new markets.
Peter's involvement in professional and trade associations showcases his commitment to the industry. He has actively participated in CKCA, BSDA, SICA, and NKBA. Previously, Peter served on the Board of Directors with CHBA and the Chamber of Commerce. Presently, he contributes as a Director on the Board for BC Wood.
Peter's leadership philosophy reflects his belief in the importance of unity within the organization, stating, "We're all one family. It doesn't matter what your position is in the company—you're as important to the team as any one person." Furthermore, he views recessions as opportunities to connect with people, understanding that building relationships during lean times can yield fruitful partnerships when work becomes more abundant. Peter aspires for Norelco Cabinets to be a high-volume production plant that builds something new every day, striving for continuous growth and innovation.
During weekends, you'll find Peter enjoying various outdoor activities such as boating, camping, skiing, or sledding, accompanied by his family and friends. Additionally, he passionately supports his favorite sports teams, the Montreal Canadiens and the Seattle Seahawks, demonstrating his love for sports and community engagement.
