Born and raised in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Mandy Rennehan came from humble beginnings. The daughter of a lobster fisherman, Mandy and the Rennehan family of six faced many challenges including growing up in a community that relied on a  seasonal fishing industry. Many times, her parents struggled to put food on the table. This motivated Mandy to strive for a different life with less financial hardships. While other kids were busy playing, Mandy was foraging for bait and selling it to the local fishermen for profit. Dubbed the ‘local fish broker,’ an entrepreneurial visionary was born at the age of 10.

Today Mandy runs Freshco, the most successful retail maintenance and construction company in the country with an impressive client list of Fortune 500 retail giants that include Tiffany & Co., Apple, Nike, The Gap, Banana Republic, Lululemon, Anthropologie, Home Depot, and Restoration Hardware.
