Paul Salvatore, CLGM

Paul's background in economic development and government service stretches back before the internet was a thing.   He has been fortunate to serve over 25 years combined at the Local Government, Provincial and Federal Government levels and now brings that experience to serving clients from across Canada.

He is acutely aware of the processes and barriers that the average person can face when dealing with all orders of government and he has always been committed to making it as easy as possible to make great things happen.

He is fiercely motivated to provide top level customer service while making sure that no matter how complicated, information that concerns everyday people can be provided in an easy to understand format.

When he's not thinking about new ideas and partnerships that will enhance almost any organization, he spends his time in the saddle - cycling, or enjoying the outdoors cross-country skiing and fishing with great friends and family.

This year he plans to complete a personal best in the Gran Fondo Badlands - a 160km cycling event in his home town and one of Canada's top 10 cycling events according to Canadian Cyclist magazine.
