Nick is the founder of the Partnership that is now known as The Glen Group. He is also a Senior Vice President of BMO Nesbitt Burns and a Portfolio Manager.

Nick has been an Investment Advisor at BMO Nesbitt Burns (and its predecessor firm, Burns Fry Limited) since 1985. Prior to that, he spent 12 years at two Chartered Accounting firms, Price Waterhouse and Thorne Riddell (the predecessor firm to KPMG). It was there that he met Tony Hume. Nick obtained his CA designation in Vancouver in 1977 and spent several years working in the income tax field before joining Burns Fry.

An immigrant who is delighted to live in Canada, Nick was born in Nairobi, Kenya, and was raised in both Kenya and Swaziland. He graduated from what is now known as the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa with a Bachelor of Science and travelled to Canada in 1973. He married Anne Bruneau from Quebec City in 1979, and they have three grown daughters and an expanding number of grandchildren.

In their spare time, Nick and Anne enjoy spending time with their girls and their partners, their grandchildren, and their large extended families. Favourite activities include hiking, biking, travelling, and especially visiting the African "bush.” Clients who are thinking of travelling to Africa should ask Nick where to go as he is a “mine” of information.
