The Rimrock Corporation team is made up of many hard working, talented individuals with interesting stories to tell. In our Employee Spotlight series, you’ll meet some of these people, learn what they do, and how they keep Rimrock exciting and fun.
This month we shine the light on JP Sebastian, our Dynamics GP Account Manager. JP was born in Manila, Philippines, but moved to the GTA when he was 2 years old, and has been living in Toronto since 2010. Prior to working at Rimrock, JP worked as a Finance Manager at ESKA Water.
In his free time, JP enjoys running, golfing, fishing (he can let you in on some of the best fishing spots in the city!), trying new restaurants, and attending as many sporting events as he can.
Read on to learn more about JP.
What do you love most about working at Rimrock & how long have you been here?
I’ve been with Rimrock for 3 months. I think the most enjoyable part of the job is helping identify solutions to make our clients jobs easier.
What is your favorite place that you have visited and where is your next dream vacation spot?
Port Antonio Jamaica. The food, the culture and the vibe of the people is contagious.
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
Professional Fisherman like Bob Izumi. Being paid to travel to fish is kind of amazing!
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
Tough choice, but it would be Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Of course, the resemblance is almost uncanny!
What TV shows/music/apps/Podcasts are you currently obsessed with right now?
I really got into the show “A Million Little Things” this year. I am also a big fan of The Walking Dead.
If you could have a drink with anyone (fictional, alive, dead, famous, non-famous) who would it be and why?
I would love to have a drink with LeBron James. He is an athlete who has been in the spotlight since he was 18 years old, and is always being compared to basketball greats, Jordan and Kobe. I would love to hear about how he deals with juggling the demands of being a high-profile athlete, his family, reputation and legacy. All in his own words- unplugged.
Tell us a “fun fact” about yourself or your “secret talent” that your colleagues might not already know.
A few years ago, when I worked for Toronto FC, I had to stand in for a player who was injured and back home in France for the annual team picture. One of the other players asked if I was a new player and why the team would sign someone so fat ☹
Any pet peeves?
Slow drivers in the passing lane, people who do not shovel or salt their sidewalks, and people that place large food/drink orders in the drive-through.
