Chris Chaplin

Chris joined HBS in October 2017 as an adult apprentice. He is doing his apprenticeship through BCITO, differing somewhat from a polytech apprenticeship by being on the job learning.

Chris was previously Group Operations Manager at Trimax Mowing Systems.  After spending much of his time at Trimax’ overseas manufacturing hubs in the US and the UK, the novelty of being away from family and friends so often soon wore off prompting the career change.
