A graduate of chemical engineering and holding an MBA, Shara has extensive knowledge in the areas of chemicals and industrial equipment, datacom, telecom, automotive, sales, precious metal recovery, and RFID (Radio-frequency identification). He is a former Director for Belron Canada, which owns multiple Speedy Auto Glass shops. While at Belron, Shara worked on in-vehicle camera calibration and pricing models for ADAS systems, such as Lane Departure Warning and Automatic Braking. He is also the former Director of Sales for Cole-Parmer, a scientific and industrial instrument distributor, and for FixAuto/NOVUS Glass, a leading auto body and windshield repair franchisor.
