Ted and Lynda Schouten
Ted Schouten, owner of FASTSIGNS® London since 1997, enjoyed owning and successfully operating DeSigns Your Sign Source for 15 years before converting to the London FASTSIGNS center. His unique and creative problem-solving skills coupled with a solid technical know-how and eye for detail are key elements to the company. Involved in the London Chamber of Commerce and the Sign Association of Canada, Ted is often described as honest, straight-forward and industrious. As a dedicated and hands on owner, he works in all areas from conception, manufacturing, fabrication and install. Ensuring the client is “More than” pleased is his number one priority.
Lynda has been the silent partner for many years but has taken on the bookkeeping role for a number of years and most recently Business Development. She has transferred her skills of managing a large household over to the business, ensuring everyone gets paid, that the coffee room is stocked and occasionally utilizing family recipes for team lunches.
Happily married for over 31 years, Ted and Lynda enjoy spending time with their eight children and several grandchildren, spending time on their boat and exploring the outdoors in God’s country. They are both active in their church where Ted serves as an elder and at their local schools where Lynda serves on the Board of Directors.
As 2020 moves forward, Ted and Lynda are aiming to develop FASTSIGNS® LONDON's capacity to operate as "the silent department" in our customers' business or organization by raising their visibility through a comprehensive, creative, customized, results-based approach that directly results in success for them. Having a growth mindset is something we strive for, both for our team and for our customers.
Our motivation: “ He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
