Prabh started his journey at You Move Me in 2013 working for the Vancouver franchise as a business development manager. He had always enjoyed sales and really loved the approach that You Move Me took of making sure customers are well taken care of and that their happiness is the primary success factor next to a great move. Over time he worked his way up the ranks and eventually ran the Vancouver franchise and helped it grow substantially along the way. He eventually made his way into working in rebuilding the National Sales Centre and eventually moved into Field Operations by coaching all of the Franchise Partners across North America. This has felt like a natural fit for Prabh and a very proud point for him in terms of career progression as he loves helping solve problems and growing the brand bigger each year.
In his spare time, Prabh enjoys reading business books, hiking, traveling, and just exploring the outdoors. Fun fact about Prabh is each year his cousin takes him on a mystery vacation where all he knows is what time to be at the airport and how many days he is going for. These trips have taken him to foreign lands like Mongolia, Nepal, and Southern India, his cousin calls the trip 'The Annual'.
