One of twelve children born into a Canadian-immigrant family in Lewiston, Maine, in 1923, Robert Verreault knew both what it was to work hard and dream big. One day in 1031, he walked downtown with his mother to carry bags back home after her shopping. (This was four miles round trip.) When a late model Plymouth approached them, Robert said, “I will have a car like that someday.” His mother answered, “Don’t say that. People like us don’t have cars.” But, Robert felt differently. “Even as a boy, I wanted to be a business man and I knew I could make my dreams come true.” Robert would have many new cars when he grew up. Business Boy to Business Man is his story of how that all came about.
