Gordon Doell is of the Chief Executive Office and Founder OBASA Group of Companies. In 1986 Gord started buying, renovating and renting houses. Over the years his Real Estate interests grew to residential, commercial and warehouse industrial properties in various cities in Saskatchewan.
Today OBASA is diversified with its primary business in Real Estate Development/Property Management and Land Annexation creating subdivisions for families in various capacities.
The Corporate Housing division OBASA Suites is not only one of Gord's core businesses; it is one of his business passions... OBASA Suites has spread across Canada and the Continental United States with affiliate's World Wide. OBASA Suites was the recent winner recipient of the 2012 Consumer Choice Award.
Even though Gord has a great passion for creating new developments he also has an appreciation for buildings of older architecture. His recent warehouse loft conversion of the tractor manufacturing facility, "The Rumley Building" won the Heritage Award for sympathetic reconstruction of this 1912 landmark in downtown Saskatoon.
Gord lives in Saskatoon with his wife Yvonne and baby boy William Michael. While business often takes Gord away, he fosters his time at home with his new family. Gord has experienced many heart felt moments in the past years. Being a father later on in life has helped him to balance a busy schedule so he has time to enjoy watching his son's precious moments.
On a personal level, in 1999 the Mayor of the City of Saskatoon presented Gord a citation for Laudable Conduct.
