The Founders

Justin McAleenan  LinkedIn Logo48

An “ideas guy” with a knack for identifying future trends and creatively solving problems, Justin recognized the need for a modern solution to recruiting hourly employees while working in hospitality and completing his degree. His first start-up, EightSix, was born a few months later. In his off time, Justin can be found among friends, playing hockey, softball, golf, or tennis, and laughing at his own jokes.

Andrew co-founded EightSix shortly after graduating from SFU’s business program. His background working in restaurants and at one of the largest talent solutions companies in Canada gives him a unique perspective when it comes to recruiting. His current focus is on growing EightSix’s userbase and creating innovative ways for employers and job seekers to connect. Andrew loves cooking, golf and new technology.

 

Why “EightSix?”

Our name is in reference to the hospitality-specific term “Eighty-Six,” which is typically used by staff when a restaurant runs out of a menu item (eg: “86 burgers!”). Eventually, it evolved into EightSix Network, which just felt right.
