Wealth for Good
Introducing Bob Manning and Owens MacFadyen Group
Today’s Boiling Point guest says there are three ways you can make a positive impact; you can give of our time, you can share your experience, or you can give of your resources or money. Bob Manning gave us his time and nuggets of experience in this week’s episode. Bob has over 20 years of business experience, working in multi-national, national and regional organizations. He has held executive-level business planning, operations and marketing positions in the information technology sector, and consulted to and helped manage start-up companies in Atlantic Canada. Throughout his career, Bob has achieved success by helping organizations deal with the challenges of growth, through the application of disciplined planning and effective management. This positive businessman was upset over a recent Globe and Mail article that seemed to skewer Saint John, New Brunswick and one of its most successful business families, the Irvings. The article seemed to say that the region would have been better off without the billionaire family and also “picked a scab” by writing a very negative outlook for New Brunswick. Bob knows that New Brunswick has its challenges, but he sees a ton of positives as well. In response to the Globe and Mail, Bob penned his own article asking for the region to start ignoring the negative rhetoric and start supporting the positive stories.
Bob is currently working as a Wealth Advisor with Owens MacFadyen Group. The company has a vision of building capacity within a community that embraces a pioneering spirit, is passionate about excellence and the realization of maximum potential, and has the courage to commit to legacy building. Bob’s clientele consist of successful entrepreneurs, senior executives and professionals with the aim of setting them up to achieve personal and community goals.
