BIG and Beyond: Ian Gillespie on Westbank’s Ongoing Evolution

A great interview outlining principal of Westbank, Ian Gillespie’s vision, where it started and where it’s headed. He says  “I started the business a few days before I turned 30, and I thought I knew everything,” reflects developer Ian Gillespie. “That’s how I could start my own business! And then I got to 40 and thought ‘now I know everything.’ But as long as now, at the ripe old age of 50-something, I’ve realized that it never stops — or at least you hope it never does — the quality of the work will keep getting better and better.”
