“Boyish grin, sharp entrepreneurial mind and highly creative spark.”
Got a picture in your mind of who’s being described here? It’s Andrew Angus, the founder and CEO of Switch Video as he is (accurately) described in On the Bay magazine this month. Andrew, along with his claymation double, made the cover of the magazine’s October 2011 issue.
On the Bay is a oversized, photo-glorious magazine publication that offers in-depth articles exploring life in the Georgian Bay area. And in case you haven’t heard, Switch is situated in a small Georgian Bay town called Collingwood. The town boasts spectacular lifestyle amenities – no traffic, amazing restaurants, a great lake, the Niagara Escarpment at it’s doorstep and it’s always been Switch’s home.
Yes, Switch – a global leader in explanatory video production – a successful “creative class” type company that employees skilled workers from all over North America – is located in Collingwood.
Obviously, it’s a joy to work at Switch but in many ways it’s a privilege to be able live and work at a great job, in this amazing small town. Great quality big city jobs in a small towns aren’t easy to come by despite the fact that this area provides the quality of life environment conducive to healthy, happy, creative and productive employees.
Here at Switch, we’re keen trail blazers; sometimes by building a successful 21st century business in a small town and other times by navigating the treacherous trails of the Niagara Escarpment. All in a day’s work.
