Gordon was born and raised in Montreal and began his sales career as a door-to-door salesman traveling across Canada selling encyclopedias for Grolier Ltd.

Over the next 20 years, as a member of the leadership team, he helped generate over 1 billion dollars in sales, in the capacity of National Training Manager.  This resulted in First Canadian becoming the largest provider of aftermarket insurance products in Canada.
In 2012, Gordon joined Industrial Alliance in a similar role and was successful in bridging the language and cultural differences, as they developed a solid and profitable training network serving the entire country.
