Malcolm Rush

I was born and raised in Nanaimo, and love working for Norm’s. I enjoy working with my family and building relationship with my co-workers and customers. I currently hold a bachelor’s degree in business, and my specialty is in marketing and business growth. I am also planning to go to trades school to become a journeyman plumber and gas fitter. My favourite thing about working for Norm’s is helping customers save money and creating more comfortable plumbing and heating solutions for their home. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, specifically hunting and hiking.

Dave Rush

I was born and raised in Ontario up until the age of 10, where I then came to the island with my mom. I graduated from NDSS in 1980 and started to do various jobs. I was introduced to Norm’s and the owner Orville through family when i was 25, and that’s when my career started. I soon went to Camosun College where I became a certified plumbing and gas fitter. While working on the tools for Norm’s I realized I had a passion for people and the community, so I started taking responsibilities in the office managing the company alongside Orville. My favorite thing about working for Norm’s is the relationships I have built with the community and creating a company that Nanaimo can trust. In my spare time I enjoy camping with my family and watching the Maple Leafs play hockey.
