COPA is saddened to learn of the recent passing of Sheldon (Don) Goldenberg, president and founder of Crestar Ltd, on April 17, 2020.

Mr. Goldenberg founded Crestar Ltd. in 1957, specializing in office supplies that included Avery labels, Planex binding, Mont Blanc, glue sticks and finally Pilot Pens in 1969. It gave him great pleasure that his son Robert joined the company and is now carrying the company forward into the next generation.

Mr. Goldenberg was a committed supporter of the Canadian Office Products Association. He received the Excellence in Leadership Award in 2008 from the COPA board and his industry peers. 

He is sadly missed by all his loyal and long-time Crestar employees and his industry colleagues.
