Nancy Newton and Kim Furniss bring a wealth of experience to On Pointe Concierge
Humbly beginning in her youth, by assisting her Dad who owned a Senior Care Facility, Nancy’s interests led her to University studies based in Hotel and Restaurant Management. With her superior knowledge of all things restaurant, hospitality, management and caring one does not find it surprising that during her career she would own two restaurants in Atlanta, Georgia.
Bringing her broad experience and professionalism to On Pointe Concierge, Nancy Newton also shares her expertise, knowledge, and understanding of what she has learned through her travels that: “Everyone is different where ever you go. Moreover, you learn something from everyone, no matter who they are or what they do.”
Nancy should know as the Personal Assistant for some of the greats Tony Bennett, Tina Turner, James Brown, The Guess Who (to name a few) at the Royal York Hotel, Imperial Room as Assistant Maitre D’ and as a world traveler, living in a multitude of locations like Toronto, London, Tampa, and Atlanta. Nancy brings an abundance of information added to her kindness and genuine love of helping people. Global and local communities have been beneficiaries to her boundless volunteer hours which led to her invitation to join the Clinton Global Initiative.
In her leisure time, Nancy enjoys hiking, kayaking, boating, painting, and going to the movies. She shares her time with her two grown children and three adult stepchildren. Let’s not forget Ace and Bailey (her two dogs), and currently, she is the Ambassador at the retirement center where her Mom and Dad (both 93 years old) reside. Can you tell they raised her just right!
Kim Furniss is passionate about life, business and has a genuine zest for helping others. These factors are what led her to the idea for On Pointe Concierge. Helping others balance their busy daily lives with what they need to get done and what they want to get done!
She brings a sense of well being and kindness to every situation that is presented to her. A background in Marketing, Administration, Sales and Corporate Event Planning has enabled Kim to deal with all types of individuals in many different situations. To add to her delightful personality she also brings a wealth of knowledge from her current positions at Bluerock Wealth Management and BRM Lending.
Always wanting to fill every minute of the day with something special, Kim enjoys volunteering for the Collingwood Hospital Foundation and any other group that needs her assistance. She also enjoys spending time with family, friends (boating in the summer, skiing in the winter) and hiking with her English Setter Gauge.
Kim has spent most of her life boating on Georgian Bay and has great knowledge and love of the area. She has fostered many great relationships all over the Georgian Bay area and knows where many of the region’s best-kept secrets are hidden. She also enjoys working with local business owners to help her clients enjoy the many benefits of the Georgian Triangle.
Kim considers it an honor to share On Pointe Concierge with her great friend Nancy Newton! They make a very well balanced team.
