Cassidy Baker

Vice President, Auction Operations & Administration

I am the go-to person when it comes to administrative and operational duties for Integra, including collections, client settlement statements, sales tax regulations, financial reporting, and contractor relationships. I also provide dedicated customer service support to thousands of our used machinery buyers ensuring they have a positive auction experience. My passion for the industrial auction space traces back to my pre-professional days when I would attend live auctions with my father who owned a reputable machinery moving company in the Greater Toronto Area.

  • Tell me one of your pet peeves.
    Rude, impatient people
  • If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve...
    Friend’s Holiday. It’s hard enough to get together with friends with our busy schedules, why not dedicate one day for friends to get together and celebrate. Life is all about human connections and are important relationships to maintain.
  • Cats or dogs?
    Dogs! Boxers in particular because I am familiar with the breed and have had (2) smart, well behaved, loving female boxers. I find dogs can form extremely affectionate relationships, funny personalities and are one of the best companions to humans. I couldn’t imagine coming home to no dogs.
  • If people didn't have to work to earn a paycheck but simply have any profession they enjoy, what would you be doing?
    I would have a dog sanctuary on a beautiful piece of property.
  • If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
