Family Legacy Series

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

The Dalhousie University Center for Family Business and Regional Prosperity is proud to honor and welcome  The Flemming Family into The Family Legacy Series! A Gala Dinner was held on October 26th to welcome Jack and Marian Flemming and their children John, Scott, Karen and Colleen.

Jack founded Ocean Contractors in 1974, and the company has grown from one small modest asphalt plant to six operating divisions today, including construction, transportation, logistics, and warehousing.

The Flemming’s recognize the importance of a safe and strong community having created the Flemming Charitable Foundation to provide relief through donations , for children, women, men and families who are in need. They also dedicate time and resources to charities such as Phoenix Youth Programs, The IWK Foundation, Feed Nova Scotia, Bonny Lea Farm, and The Children’s Wish Foundation.

The family has completed their succession from first to second generation with sons John and Scott now at the helm of the companies and Karen and Colleen overseeing the family’s charitable foundations...

We stand as one and salute the heritage and the servanthood of this wonderful family!!
