Stephen is one of the founders of Ontario Screen Systems Inc. (OSSI), along with Danny Motkaluk, since Feb 1994. When he started OSSI, he wanted to bring Phantom Screens to Ontario. Now, Stephen has built an amazing team that provides consultation and installation to thousands of customers every year. Fully 25 years later, OSSI is the number one seller of door screens in the Phantom Screens distributor network and has achieved the business goals many times over. Today, Phantom has offered even greater retractable products to homeowners. “It’s a great company, a revolutionary product, and we wanted to make it known throughout the province” (Attfield, 2019).
Regarding his personal life, Stephen is married and has three kids. He grew up with cats, but now he has two cats and two dogs. He enjoys spending time outdoors with family and friends skiing, cycling, camping, and listening to music. Also, he enjoys to barbeque and serving a great meal to friends and family.
Stephen believes that energy conservation is critical for our planet’s future, and he researches and implements new ways to conserve energy, both at home and at the office.
Holly is the head of Strategy and Execution and has been managing teams for over 20 years. She is an Architectural Technologist (NAIT, Edmonton), and she would love more homeowners to be aware of Phantom Screens products, and the greater enjoyment it brings to their home.
Holly brings Phantom Screens closer to customers through marketing efforts in print, radio and on industry blogs and websites, and she works hard to create a fantastic workplace culture for Phantom team members. She believes that “a great work environment, great people and great products are the best possible ingredients to a successful experience for Phantom Screens customers” (Attfield, 2019).
Regarding her personal life, Holly lives with her husband and 3 kids in the countryside an hour north of Toronto. She loves animals, and has two big dogs – one chocolate labradoodle and one white lab mix, two crazy cats and a tank full of fish! Also, Holly loves health and fitness related activities, and spending time with family and friends outdoors, traveling to new places, and documenting her family memories through photography and scrapbooking. What does she love? Coffee! And, a sentence she strongly believes is “Just do it”.
Danny has grown up in the home improvement industry since his youth. His father used to have an aluminium door and window manufacturing company, and Danny worked in sales for the family business. Then, in 1994, Danny founded OSSI along with Stephen Attfield. “I enjoy running into other second-generation door and window people, whose parents did business with mine. It’s like sharing a common history; it’s a peek at nostalgia and progress at the same time” (Motkaluk, 2019).
Now, at Phantom Screens Ontario, Danny remains proud of what his company has offered for each customer. He remembers selling a very first screen in 1994 to a couple in Mississauga who were invited to celebrate the 25th OSSI anniversary on Valentine’s Day, 2019. The couple still loves the product as much as they did back. So, from a standpoint of his goal to deal with the very best products, he has definitely achieved that.
In addition to work, Danny joys spending time with his family. He has three sons, and two grandsons with whom he delights to be together. He also enjoys spending time by the lake in Bobcaygeon, and watching sports, particularly hockey and football. Also, Danny deeply cares about pets. He rescued both dogs and cats so that they can have a second chance at a loving home.
All in all, Danny strongly believes the success is a result of hard work. “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later” (Motkaluk, 2019).
