Founder of Global (West) and industry consultant James (Jim) Harman passed away earlier this month at the age of 80 following a brave battle with cancer.
Born in Toronto, James moved west with his significant other, Margaret, to set up their own company, J. Harman Agencies Ltd. In 1975 James established Global (West) Wholesalers Ltd, entering the office products and furniture business. He maintained ownership of the company until selling in 2000, but remained active in the business world by offering consulting services.
James enjoyed golfing and one of his favourite destinations to indulge in the sport was in Palm Desert. Jim is survived by a large family including his partner, children, grand children and great grandchildren. Friends are invited to a celebration of James’ life which will be held Sunday, October 11 at Seymour Golf and Country Club from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in North Vancouver.
