Bryan Sommer
Director

Bryan’s tax planning expertise as a Chartered Accountant, combined with his skill as a Certified Financial Planner, separates him from other Financial Advisors. His specialized skills help fill the gap between a typical Financial Planner and an accountant. Being a top rated financial planner requires taking responsibility for consistently finding financial solutions that fulfill the life essentials.

BRYAN’S WHY: At a formidable age, Bryan experienced a life changing moment that strongly shaped his views on life.

“Knowing that life can be short, I’ve kept my promises and stand here doing what I love as a Financial Planner where I get to help my clients enjoy life without the worry of money”.

Chuck Keeling
Director

Chuck Keeling literally grew up in the horse racing/gaming industry. His family and outside partners owned several race tracks, and Keeling started working in the business when he was eight-years-old and continued through school and university. Through some untimely deaths in the family, Keeling was thrust into the position of managing the company’s two racetracks by the time he was 24. Shortly thereafter, he led the eight year campaign to secure slot machine approval, both municipally and provincially, for horse racing in the province. In late 2004, Great Canadian Gaming successfully acquired these race tracks and retained Keeling to oversee the company’s horse racing interests. In 2013, they appointed him Vice-President, Stakeholder Relations and Responsible Gaming to oversee the company’s relations with government, communities, charities and the media, as well as oversee the company’s responsible gambling programs. He has had the privilege of sitting on multiple non-profit boards, is married and has a 13-year-old daughter who is more demanding than his full time job will ever be.
