“LIVE AS IF YOU WERE TO DIE TOMORROW.
LEARN AS IF YOU WERE TO LIVE FOREVER.”
Collin is a firm believer in learning and seeking out knowledge to become the best version of yourself. From the plethora of literature available today and actively listening to his client’s passions, businesses and goals, Collin assumes the position of co-pilot to ensure that his client’s vision and goals come to fruition.
Soon after graduating from the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business, he joined EY, LLP, where he was exposed to multitude of disciplines within the firm ranging in services from audit, transaction advisory, to taxation. The breadth and depth of knowledge gained, positioned Collin to take a holistic approach to his client’s vision. Although, Collin’s experience at EY, LLP was invaluable, he decided to broaden his knowledge in areas of tax and wealth planning at PwC, LLP, where he advised family offices and other wealth clients on tax planning structures.
More recently, as the VP of finance for a private brokerage firm, Collin had the opportunity to perform due diligence on the financial health across a broad range of issuer partners seeking out capital in the private markets. Apart from overseeing the accounting operations, managing cash flows and assessing risk and business strategies, Collin says that it is not his multifaceted experience that makes him unique but rather the passion to go above and beyond to help his clients achieve their vision.
In between helping his clients’ and juggling raising two kids, he enjoys riding his motorcycle down the winding roads from Alberta to British Columbia. The journey allows him to reflect and enjoy some of the beauty and nature that surrounds us.
