I am an Advisory Partner and have spent the majority of my career working in the areas of Corporate Finance and Banking. I advise a wide range of clients with a primary focus on the privately held family business sector. Although I have had involvement in a diverse array of industries during my 25-year career in finance, my particular focus has been on transportation & logistics, fisheries, manufacturing & distribution and real estate.
I spend my time supporting our clients across Atlantic Canada as I believe it is critically important to advise, enable and support the continued prosperity of all businesses in the region and that the success of the privately held, family-owned enterprise is the lifeblood of economic growth in the Atlantic Provinces.
I have been involved in numerous debt, transaction and financial due diligence advisory assignments, having worked with many of the region’s most successful and innovative entrepreneurial families, many of which have spanned multiple generations. I enjoy working on transactions and supporting clients of all sizes and complexity as this provides the opportunity for a direct line of communication to the owners and decision makers. This is what matters to me.
Away from the office, I am a committed father and cheerleader for my two daughters, spending many hours at the field, the pool and the dance studio. I enjoy the occasional round of golf, the reward of a completed run and as many hours as I can steal away at our family cottage.
I do believe that we all have a role to play in supporting our communities through active involvement in charitable organizations as I currently serve on the boards of Cole Harbour Place and Kids Up Front Atlantic.
