Richard Wilson is a lifelong entrepreneur and currently the President of AGNORA, a company he founded in 2011. AGNORA is a customer service company that fabricates the largest architectural glass in North America. The 225,000-square foot production facility in Collingwood, Ontario functions as a custom fabrication shop, supplying glass to a variety of cultural, residential, commercial, and retail projects including over 100 Apple Stores in North America. An industry-disrupting, team-based customer service culture is the primary driver of AGNORA’s growth. The original 6 employees have grown to a team of 72 committed to setting new industry standards for both service and quality. Continual investment in process improvements and education has resulted in products of a quality far in excess of the industry’s standard specifications.
Richard is passionate about learning, exceeding the expectations of his customers, and finding ways to build mutually rewarding partnerships with all stakeholders in his business. He supports a variety of local charities and is active in both the Collingwood Chamber of Commerce and the Region of Simcoe County to promote business development in the area. Richard lives in Collingwood with his wife Laura and their two sons.
