    Curt Allison is the owner of Express Employment Professionals in Coquitlam, BC. Express specializes in temporary and permanent job placements in the areas of administration, accounting/finance, labour/industrial, and sales/marketing for Tri-City businesses.

    Originally from North Carolina, Curt has been in the human resources and recruitment field for over 20 years.  He started out as a franchise service representative at the Express Employment headquarters in Oklahoma City for what he planned to last “just a year or 2 at the most.” He ended up loving the industry and continued on in that role in Oklahoma City for almost 4 years.

    Curt fell in love with Vancouver after a trip here.  Wanting to move to the Lower Mainland, he was awarded the Tri-Cities market to open an Express office. In February of 1999, Curt opened the very first Express office in British Columbia.

    The Coquitlam Express Employment office is also the British Columbia Training Office for new franchisees opening an office in BC. In his spare time, Curt is a free-lance musician, part time minister, lover of yoga, and March Madness basketball enthusiast.
