George Armoyan is one of Atlantic Canada’s most successful developers and investors. George’s family arrived in Boston from Syria in the early 1970’s. George came to Halifax to attend Dalhousie University and decided to make Nova Scotia his home.
Since he was a kid, George has been making deals. His philosophy in business has been to find undervalued firms and turn them around to create value for shareholders and generate wealth.
He uses the simple principle of buying low and selling high in creating a highly successful, highly diversified business empire.
He is the embodiment of a straight shooter. He’s not shy with his opinions and doesn’t mind ruffling a few feathers to get to where he wants to go.
George agreed to sit down with me at his historic residence on Young Avenue in Halifax to talk about his life, his family, his successes and his failures on the road to building his fortune.
I hope you enjoy my wide-ranging conversation with the ambitious and enigmatic, George Armoyan.
