Who We Are

Meet Steve

He’s a fisherman, home renovator, and knows his way around a kitchen. He’s also one of three Licensed Insolvency Trustees in his family that has been successfully helping people with their debt problems since the 90s. Steve understands that life throws curveballs and is a strong believer in the Canadian insolvency system. He knows the relief that an initial consultation can provide and he enjoys empowering his clients to overcome their financial difficulties.

Sure he’s a chartered accountant, Licensed Insolvency Trustee, and received the gold medal for the highest mark on the National Insolvency Exam, but he doesn’t like to remind anyone of those facts… except his brother.

Community is important to Steve. That’s why PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP recognized him as their South Western Ontario Volunteer of the year for his work on a local board of directors. He’s also been a big brother for over a decade and prepared tax returns for free through the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario.
