Meet Cory Hawkes, our Yardi Breeze customer service manager based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Cory has been at Yardi for more than nine years now. He’s an avid curler and – go figure – super nice guy. Keep reading to learn a little more about him.
What do you like best about your job?
Definitely the people I work with every day. Getting a chance to know and work with people in other Yardi offices is something I really like about this job.
Do you speak any other languages? If so, which ones?
I can read French and somewhat speak it if the other person is patient with me. I did take some Spanish courses, so I can talk about clothes and fruits pretty well 😊.
How do you like to spend your free time?
In the winter, I spend almost all my free time curling! I am on a competitive curling team and play four to five times a week for sure.
What is the most interesting place you’ve ever traveled?
Romania has probably been the most interesting place I have travelled. Cluj, where we have a Yardi office, was such a cool city, and the people there were amazing!
What is your favorite movie of all time and why?
I love going to movies and have so many that I love, one of my favorites though is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. We watch it every year over the holidays with family.
What is one thing on your bucket list?
If I ever have enough money, I would take a year and go to all the major sports championships – the Stanley Cup, Super Bowl, Grand Slam, etc.
What is your favorite food?
Pizza and Mexican food are definitely my weaknesses!
