Steve has over thirty years in senior positions in public services including a wide range of management consulting assignments at the national, provincial and local levels. He has been an active volunteer all his life, and he hikes and canoes in summer and skis and curls in winter.


Nick is currently on a quest to hike all 60 of the USA National Parks, having crossed off 14 thus far. He brings that same enthusiasm and sense of adventure to his work having had the opportunity to work on a diverse variety of projects with LBCG, working at the local, provincial and national levels, bringing him all across Ontario; from Queen’s Park, to Ottawa to Sioux Lookout.

Michael is a seasoned expert in organizational design and development.  He is also known as a facilitator who can handle the most challenging groups and is a trusted advisor to many senior leaders within the not-for-profit sector.  Michael spends most of his free time either trying to keep up to his two kids or trying to still act like a kid himself.


If you ever ask Tony about his expertise, he would say that he is a generalist. However, truth is that he is superb at sparking change, building momentum and resolving conflicts. However, none of these come in handy when he is chasing after his young son. Oh, and he actively volunteers in his spare time.


Frank Markel’s professional career has been a long and windy road leading all the way to LBCG where he focuses on Executive Search. Frank’s health administration career has bounced back and forth between roles in planning and policy juxtaposed with institutional and organizational leadership. Most notably, Frank served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Trillium Gift of Life Network, Ontario’s organ and tissue donation organization, which was not merely a job, but a calling.

Throughout his time in healthcare, Frank has maintained an appointment at the Institute for Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto, where he has taught students in Health Administration, mentored a generation of health leaders and provided unheeded advice on many research projects.

Frank’s garage holds wooden skis, wooden tennis racquets and many empty wine bottles. He and his wife, Flora, count five children between them, eight grandchildren and four dogs.
