Chief Leadership Officer
While considering career choices, Greg listened intently to the conversations of his parents’ friends, hoping to discover which jobs were the most exciting. Instead, what he heard was a lot of frustration and disenchantment with the daily grind.
Perplexed that people would spend most of their adult lives in unfulfilling situations, Greg sought to understand a career path where he could help make peoples’ working lives more enjoyable and more meaningful. Though he was still in high school, this was the start of Greg’s passion for creating great workplaces.
Greg finished his Bachelor’s degree (for which he studied employee satisfaction) and then his Master’s degree (his research on employee commitment was published by Queen’s University). He then started his career in earnest.
Greg has over 25 years experience in business strategy, leadership coaching, and employee engagement, much of which he gained during his time as Vice President for two publicly traded Canadian companies.
Greg supports senior leadership teams across Canada, engages top talent in leadership development, and is an executive coach within private and public organizations.
