“My favorite thing about working at Welch is the people – they are very down to earth and good-natured. There is definitely a lack of egos or chip on people’s shoulders.”

With over twenty years of experience in maximizing the value companies get from their accounting, tax and business advisor relationships; Bruce’s role is to represent and grow business for Welch LLP and Welch Capital Partners in the Ottawa and Toronto markets and also help our clients become more successful.

He does this by working to develop long term relationships between the people of Welch and the businesses in our community, and finding ways for himself and the firm to add value at every step.

Bruce graduated from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Commerce. Prior to joining Welch, he held senior business development positions at a large international accounting firm and in the high tech industry.

In 2005 Bruce was named one of Ottawa’s Top Forty under 40.
