Tim Moore is one of Atlantic Canada’s preeminent entrepreneurs. A true visionary who sees opportunities where others see obstacles, he is the founder of numerous companies including AMJ Campbell Van Lines, Premiere Executive Suites, Premiere Van Lines, Premiere Self-Storage, Premiere Mortgage Center, Oceanstone Resorts, and Moore Executive Suites.
While a young, junior high teacher in 1970, Tim Moore realized he had a passion and aptitude for engaging and mentoring others. This discovery laid the foundation for a lifetime of success building major businesses and creating hundreds of entrepreneurs. In each of these endeavours, he personally recruited talented individuals and encouraged them to embrace entrepreneurship.
By the late 1980’s, the business elite took notice of Mr. Moore’s abilities. His feature profile in the book “The New Entrepreneurs: 80 Canadian Success Stories” preceded two decades of media attention, including two major articles in Profit magazine. As the author of two inspirational books, On the Move and You Don’t Need a MBA to Make Millions, Tim shared the story of his journey and provided a practical guide to being a successful entrepreneur.
A former member of the Saint Mary’s University Board of Governors, Mr. Moore has been much lauded for his many accomplishments and community contributions. He has received The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal, The Distinguished Service Award from the Canadian Mover’s Association, and the Certificate of Merit, Entrepreneur Category, in the Canada Awards for Business Excellence. As well, he has the distinction of being honoured an incredible five times as one of the Top 50 CEO’s for Atlantic Canada, thereby qualifying for the Hall of Fame and a subsequent tribute as Master Entrepreneur of the Year, Atlantic Region.
Knowing how fortunate he has been in life and in business, Moore has made sure to give back through mentoring and charitable activities, including Junior Achievement of Canada, Best Buddies of Canada, the Canadian Olympic Association, the Alzheimer Association of Nova Scotia, the Mental Health Association of Nova Scotia and the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
