Meet the bees – who we are
The team at Golden Bee Homes consists of committed, creative and qualified experts. We are passionate about our work and dedicated to providing our clients with exceptional service and quality workmanship.
Why the Golden Bee?
Jack Torossian, founder of Golden Bee Homes, chose his company name based on his respect for the hard working, highly social and intelligent bee. A bee’s colony is a complex working system where each bee has a role that must be adhered to, specialized and honed for the betterment of the entire community. It is from the bee’s meticulous attention to continuously perfecting its craft that Jack and his team draw upon in their endeavour to perfect their own.
JACK TOROSSIAN – CEO
Owner and founder of Golden Bee Homes, Jack is a third generation builder. His father, and his grandfather before him were both in the building and construction industry, however, Jack doesn’t just consider himself a builder – Jack is a creator with a meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to providing clients with unparalleled service and quality.
Jack’s easy rapport with clients, collaborative nature and ultimate reliability, have resulted in long lasting relationships and a solid reputation in the industry. Motivated by client satisfaction, Jack prides himself on taking a project from a mere concept through to its ultimate completion – his exceptional work is a testament to his craftsmanship.
MARIA GIACOMINI – Senior Designer
Having over 20 years of experience in the design-build industry, our Senior Designer Maria, leads the design process for each of our projects. With her innate sense of style, creative vision, and fun-loving nature, she is a pleasure to work with. Her ability to transform the intimidating steps of a renovation’s design into an enjoyable and interactive process, provides peace of mind for our clients.
Working as a Graphic Designer before being accepted into the Architectural program at the University of Toronto, she has had the opportunity to study architecture abroad in cities such as Florence, Rome, and Nice when completing her Bachelor of Architecture degree. She has also had the pleasure of studying in Japan, Hong Kong, and Thailand when completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts honours degree, with a primary focus in Visual Communication Design, at York University.
APO MRADIAN – Production Manager
Apo plays a crucial role at Golden Bee Homes as the acting Production Manager, where he is in charge of supervising all of our operations.
He started working with us as a labourer in 2015, and quickly moved up the ranks after passing his Building Code exams and getting his degree in Construction Management at York University’s Schulich Executive Education Centre.
Apo has now become a true asset as his role in the company has grown and still continues to grow.
NICOLE MORALES – Designer
With a passion for interior design, a keen eye for innovative solutions and a deep understanding of the latest trends, Nicole brings our client’s design concepts to reality thanks to her innate ability to visualise completed spaces and advanced rendering skills.

Her recent addition to the Golden Bee Team has brought in a breath of fresh air thanks to her innovative ideas and creative design solutions.
PARS MARGAROSYAN – Project Manager
While Apo oversees the overall projects and operations, day-to-day project management and site supervision falls under Pars’ care. During the construction period, clients will be in constant contact with Pars, whose easy manner and professionalism provides peace of mind and makes the building process a pleasant experience for our clients.
Pars is the perfect conduit between the client and the tradesmen – his relationship skills coupled with his scheduling and negotiation skills are an asset to any project. His single goal is to get the job done right while ensuring the highest quality.

Young and dynamic, he has been with us since 2013 when he joined us as a laborer. He grew within the company under Pars’ mentorship and established a reputation for himself in his current position.
Trustworthy and reliable, Daron can be counted on to successfully complete small jobs by himself to ensure that the project progresses smoothly. He is Apo’s conduit on site as he coordinates the trades coming in and out.
