Terry Sikora

HR & Payroll

About

It seems like a lifetime ago that Terry started this adventure. As a co-founder of Classic Impressions, she has seen many things change over the years, including her duties. She is a woman of many talents, looking after HR and payroll as well as helping out with invoicing and accounts receivable. She is proud to consider the employees of Classic as her “Classic Family”. Working with her husband, the General Manager, can be challenging at times…but rewarding. She looks forward to every holiday when she can brighten up the office with her decorative flair (Christmas is her favorite because she gets to hang stockings and wrap gifts for the entire Classic Family – they call her ‘Mrs. Clause’).
Terry enjoys travelling with Barry, knitting, crocheting, card making and spending time with her two adorable grandsons.

Chris Lee

Sales Manager

About

Chris is a very proud member of the Classic Family. He started his career in the print industry in 2006, as a press operator for Classic Impressions. He quickly gained valuable hands on knowledge and an appreciation for the world of ink on paper. With his hard work ethic, “can do” attitude, and ambitious nature, Chris soon worked his way into Customer Service. Not long after moving into the office, he decided to go a step further and move into Sales and in 2012 he received the title of Sales Manager.

Lisa is one of the newest members of the Classic family.

Favourite Quote

 ‘Just be awesome! Awesome never requires explaining, defending or promoting. Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.’  – Ralph Marston

Fun Fact

If it’s snow, Lisa is skiing. If it’s water, she’s snorkeling, scuba diving or paddle boarding. If it’s a nature trail, she’s hiking.
