    Hector Silva
    General Manager

    The General Manager position in an organization like Nothers is similar to being a coach for a sports team.  That person is not necessarily the best doing everything, but he/she leads the team to get the best results and exceed the customers’ expectations guaranteeing a "Memorable Experience" for Nothers’ clients and their Award Winners.

    Hector Silva is originally from Bogota, Colombia. He immigrated to Canada in 2001 with his family and they have made their new life in London. He is married to Hilda Mateus and together they have raised two sons who they are very proud of; Eder and Leandro.

    Hector’s work history started in Colombia with an entry level position in Colombia’s biggest bank (equivalent to the Bank of Canada). During that period he earned a degree in computer systems engineering at INCAA University.  This led to a teaching position at Cooperative University.  Over the course of his 18 years working, studying and teaching others he achieved the prestigious position of the National Operations Manager for the bank.

    Since arriving in London in 2001 Hector Silva has worked hard to build a new life for himself and his family.  He exercised his entrepreneurial spirit by opening a new business called “That Computer Guy” in 2005. This led Hector to Nothers and in 2007 Jim invited him to be part of the team. The success story continues as Hector was elevated to the General Manager position where he has created and implemented sound managerial practices and best practices for his team.


    Hector has created a very good reputation in local sporting circles; particularly in the soccer community.His skill as a player and a coach has earned him much respect and helps him with understanding exactly what players and teams need and expect from rewards created by Nothers.

    Hector has furthered his and Nothers reputation by being a leader in the Community helping organizing big events like the annual Colombia Independence celebrations bringing together 2000 plus Colombians and their Canadian friends. He has also shared Colombian culture by helping to bring several Colombian music, comedy and dance acts to share with us here in London.

    Hector says “I enjoy working with the entire team at Nothers and what I like the most is the smiles of children or adults receiving the Awards we produce for them. I embrace challenges, enjoy sports, team building and leadership development but what I love the most is being effective doing something productive every single day.
