Wayne Marshall

ECM-image-waynemarshallRaised and educated in Nova Scotia, Wayne Marshall entered the moving industry in 1966. He bought his first truck when he was 26, and has held every position in the business. Success has come through hard work, his ability to attract and keep the best people in the industry, and a commitment to quality. In 1995 he was nominated by a senior Canadian bank as entrepreneur of the year.

Wayne took over management of East Coast Moving & Storage in 1991, and purchased the business in 1995. He steered the company through the transportation industry’s deregulation, and found ways to make it work even better. He applied the sound principles learned through thirty years of service to build a moving team to deal with the challenges of the nineties and beyond.

Today, under Wayne Marshall’s command, the company is forging new alliances to make it the most progressive moving company in the region. It foresees new opportunities and exciting growth in the next century.
