Malcolm Rush
Marketing and Apprentice | 6 Years Experience

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
Manager | 30 Years Experience

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.

I grew up in Nanaimo. I moved away to go to University, then traveled the world. I spent 13 years in Australia, where my son Oscar was born and we recently moved back to the island to be closer to family again. I have a bachelor of Commerce in Accounting. I love working at Norms because of the people and the flexibility – they put family first. When I’m not at work you can find me cheering for my son at the ice arena or the baseball field. We can also be found snowboarding, camping or exploring this beautiful island.
