About Jerry

Jerry Gratton is all about people – it’s even in his title at O2E Brands, the banner company for 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and Shack Shine. Jerry has helped conceptualize and nurture our employee life-cycle, from talent acquisition and development to retention. With over 20 years of practice building and leading innovative, progressive teams, he’s also held key leadership positions at Crystal Decisions, Aritzia, and MindField. But he’s always been drawn back to the ever-evolving project of developing the quirky, passionate, and totally awesome teams at O2E Brands.

 

If Jerry isn’t crafting corporate culture for the over 500 employees at O2E Brands, he’s renovating houses, skateboarding or hanging out with his family in Vancouver, BC.
