Gregory James Aziz is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Steel Car Company, whose headquarters are at Ontario Canada.

Although James Aziz only played minor roles in the firm when he was young, he gained ample experience and knowledge about business. Consequently, he became very interested in business and studied a Business Administration Economics Course at the Ridley College and University of Western Ontario.

 

Right after this graduation, Aziz took on a new managerial role at the Food Affiliates Company. At that time, the parents trusted him enough and believed that he had ample business knowledge and experience to help him fulfill the duties competently.

These were also distributed in Canada and other regions of America. The profit levels shot very fast and more branches were opened within Canada. Despite the success, Greg Aziz decided to pursue a career in the banking and investment industry where he stayed for a couple of years. However, eventually he went into entrepreneurship when he bought the National Steel Car Company in 1994. The previous owner was called Dofasco and they felt they needed to sell the event. Coincidentally, Greg happened to be eyeing the company and desiring to expand it to a higher level.  See Related Information Here.
