Looking back on 2018 – Richard MacNeill

Dear friends,

With 2018 coming to a close, it is a good time to reflect on how much we have to be grateful for, and to give thanks.  We thank our clients who have placed their trust in us, and we thank our dedicated staff and associates who give their all to serve our firm and our clients.

2018 was an exciting year for OTUS Group.  We are thrilled to now be serving clients in Vancouver, supported by highly experienced OTUS team members who are based there.   This was particularly satisfying for me as I have family and many friends in Vancouver who I get to see more often!

In the fall we launched The Ottawa Association Exchange, or OAX, in partnership with the Ottawa Business Journal.  Focussed on associations, this unique local initiative is a valuable new multimedia resource that will provide association executives with the latest information on best practices and comparative data.

OTUS Group has been involved in the aviation sector for many years, providing aviation clients with financial management and strategic planning services.   That is why we were absolutely delighted to have Peter Allen, FCPA, FCA, FRAeS join our team early this year.   Peter is a highly experienced pilot with extensive global expertise in financial and operational risk management, capital markets, provincial and federal governments, stakeholder and board relations.  Peter’s unique mix of business and aviation experience and expertise along with a wealth of strategic insight is greatly benefitting our aviation sector clients.

Clients often ask us to recommend to them professionals in areas that are outside of our firm’s core expertise, one of these being executive coaching.   This year we had the privilege of working with and recommending Terry Lipovski, CMC of Ubiquity Leadership.  Terry is a Certified Executive Coach and Leadership Coach, with the ability to inspire greatness in those he works with.   We are delighted to be affiliated with Terry, and highly recommend him to any business leader seeking to overcome challenges and achieve transformational change.

Thank you for making 2018 an amazing year!

Merry Christmas!  And best wishes for a healthy, happy, and peaceful New Year.
