Ricki Chandarana // Vice President

With a degree in business and a long history in the painting industry, Ricki brings the passion and drive to make Prostar the best it can be.  He understands that customer service is what will sustain and grow the business in the short and long term and that word of mouth can go a long way.  When speaking with him it is quite clear that he cares about his customers and really wants them to rely on his team.
When Ricki is not hard at work he loves spending time with his family and is an avid sportsman.  His passion for hockey supersedes all other forms of entertainment.  He describes watching the "Gold Metal Game" live at Rogers Area as being the most thrilling sporting experience he has had but sadly it was shortly followed by great disappointment when leaving the arena after "Game 7".


"To gain trust from a customer is incredibly difficult but when gained it needs be treated with the utmost care and attention".
