“I am a very hard worker, pushing myself. I wouldn’t want to work for anyone who doesn’t work as hard or harder than me. So, why wouldn’t I want to work for Mark? He’s not built to fail.”
“Cancer is something that everyone is affected by in some way – this [volunteering] is another way I can give back to my community.”
Geoff was raised in the Kennebecasis Valley and studied business at the University of New Brunswick for two years, equating a certificate in business. Throughout his study years, he became fluent in French to the point of bilingualism.
Geoff is married and has two children – one boy and one girl. Growing up, people called him by his last name, Bryson, and it stuck ever since. He looked up to his grandfather, spending a lot of time with him as a kid, being taught how to fish. As soon as you’re on the dock, in the boat, or on the side of the waters edge, nothing else matters other than the catch.
Geoff’s first job was working with Mark at his first company, University Venture. Later, when Mark began Homestar in 2001, he asked Geoff to work with him again and the rest is history.
With a sense of pride, Geoff values giving back to the community and keeping business local. Working for Homestar has enabled him to do just that. In the earlier years of the company, his career allowed him to provide for his family while his wife studied post-secondary education.
Outside of work, Geoff and his family canvas for Heart & Stroke, and participate in any event that is related to fighting cancer. He also coaches basketball during the season, enjoys fishing, and has a hobby of wood working.
