Vincent G. Shanahan, Esq.
I was born and raised(one of twelve siblings)in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland. After completion of Grade 10 at St. Francis High School in 1978, I enrolled in the Canadian Armed Forces and served a five year engagement as a Administration Clerk with tours of duty at Canadian Forces Station St. John's Newfoundland, and with HMCS YUKON on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. In about 1982 I returned to evening classes, and completed my education to obtain my High School Diploma.
Upon completion of my five year engagement witht the Canadian Armed Forces in 1985, I relocated to Newmarket Ontario and worked as the Production & Inventory Control Coordinator with Superior Performance Products Inc., a manufacturer of die-cast aluminum wheels for the big three automotive manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers. Initially I was hired as the Shipper/Receiver, but was quickly promoted to Production and Inventory Control Coordinator after demonstrating my ability and skills for organization and administrative controls.
While still employed with Superior Performance, I took over leasing and management of a local Shell Service Centre and convenience outlet in the Newmarket area, and I grew the business steadily for a seven year period to 1992.
In 1992 I moved to Barrie and returned to college to complete the Law Clerk course of studies at the College of Business Training in Barrie, Ontario. Prior to graduating(Honours), I launched Law Clerks @ Large Paraglegal Services and spent the next 15 years representing clients before the Ontario Small Claims Courts and the Landlord and Tenant Boards in Ontario, among other administrative & paralegal challenges. During that period of time I continuously built a steady portfolio of residential management properties from many of the clients who used my services to rid themselves of problem tenants.
In about 2007 I officially launched Alpha Omega Property Management & Consulting Services Inc. For the past four years I have continuously engaged myself in full time management of both residential and small to medium scale commercial properties in Simcoe County and surrounding areas.
I am blessed with a beautiful wife(Gail), two beautiful and cherished daughters(Tara and Danielle), and three beautiful and wonderous grandsons(Mackenzie, Isaiah, and Jordan).
