Who We Are.
As a sought-after consultant for high-growth organizations and teams, Stephen has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Professionals for 2023.
He began his business career with The Boston Consulting Group in the 1990s, serving Fortune 500 and global equivalent firms before becoming Vice President of Corporate Development for TMX Group (when its value increased over 400%), then co-founding and running an ed-tech startup which attracted over a million users and won several industry awards.
Stephen leveraged his executive experience into a return to consulting with the Business Development Bank of Canada's Growth Driver Program for High-Impact Firms, before co-founding Framework and Rimrock Advisory Boards.
