2014 marks the 40-year anniversary for ROI Corporation, Canada’s practice appraisal and sales leader. Roy Brown founded ROI Corporation in 1974 at his family home in Mississauga and the company is pleased to announce yet another decade of success.
“It’s remarkable to see how far my father’s vision has developed and where it has taken ROI Corporation,” said Timothy A. Brown, President and CEO, ROI Corporation, “All of our successes and achievements are because he took a chance, quit his job and started this company 40 years ago.”
When Roy Brown started the company in his home with just a desk, a rotary phone and a notepad he could only dream where it would be 40 years later. Roy Brown is a pioneer. He had the idea that an appraisal had value for dental practitioners when no one else did. His eldest daughter, Lanee Brown, came into the business in the 1980’s and furthered Roy’s vision in empirical systemization. Today there is an entire marketplace based on the groundwork that both Lanee and Roy built. Timothy A. Brown, the youngest of Roy’s children, followed in his father’s footsteps and began working at ROI in the 1990’s. In 1994 Roy decided to step down and Timothy was appointed Vice President and quickly moved into the role of President and CEO.
“I remember watching my dad sign his first deal on the coffee table in our living room,” recalled Timothy A. Brown, “That was a milestone moment for our company.”
ROI Corporation continues the tradition of hiring within the ROI team family. Robert T. MacDonald and David B. Rourke, hired in 2004 and 2010 respectively, are the grandchildren of founder Roy Brown. ROI Corporation has expanded its business nationally, with associates across Canada. ROI has performed over 7,500 appraisals since 1974. With exponential success in the dental industry, ROI recently expanded the business and began offering their appraisal, brokerage and consulting services to veterinary and optometry practices. ROI is continuously expanding its business and in 2013, hired Jackie Joachim as the Chief Operating Officer. ROI Corporation looks forward to continuing to grow the company and celebrating another 10 years in the business and reaching the landmark anniversary of 50 years.
