Greg Fenton

Though Greg was born and raised in Toronto, he earned a BA (Hons) in political philosophy in the “Limestone City” at Queen’s University before moving to London, England where he trained and qualified as a chartered accountant during his 7-years living and working in and exploring that enduring and intricately layered place.  Greg is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales (ICAEW).  Engaged in empowering professionals to make decisions that serve their clients effectively, efficiently, sustainably and passionately, Greg has spent his 25-year career working in and advising a wide array of businesses around the world in the fields of accountancy & audit and marketing communications as well as architecture & planning.

A member of the former Task Force to Bring Back the Don (2007-2011), Greg is an urbanist fascinated by how cities are continually built and rebuilt, growing and adapting as a collective expression of their inhabitants responding to their environments.  He is also an amateur builder (with an unusual interest in building science) who has designed, permitted, contracted and built significant renovations and additions to his 1910 semi-detached home in Toronto’s east end.

Greg is an active member of his church community, chairing the Audit and Finance Committee of St Paul’s Bloor Street and serving on the Board of Directors of St George by the Grange.  He is a former competitive rower, a (once competitive) triathlete and member of the Board of Directors of his road cycling club, the Dark Horse Flyers, “Toronto’s friendliest cycling club.”
