Martin H. Strauss – Manager, Finance and Research

Martin Strauss’s expertise in financial management helps our clients make effective decisions around budgeting and strategic planning.

  • Martin is trained and highly skilled in strategic planning, having served as a Manager of Strategic Planning at the Business Development Bank of Canada.
  • Martin has over 35 years of management experience with business, government, and not-for-profit organizations.
  • He serves as the Finance Manager for 10 associations and a registered charity managed by Strauss.
  • He oversees much of the business and financial research required by clients to ensure their long-term viability and financial health.

For me, the greatest moments are the ‘a-ha’ moments when I can help a client see beyond their current management habits and implement systems that save time and money, freeing up resources to grow as an organization.
