Brittany Gilbert

Senior HR Coordinator

Quote “It’s the people” is one of the most popular answers when someone asks what you love about ST. I take tremendous pride in hiring, keeping and connecting with each member of ST. The people at ST are passionate, smart, kind and hardworking and I love making their experience the best I possibly can. When I’m not working, I’m outside, skiing, hiking and spending time with my family.

Bronwyn Black

Account Coordinator

Quote Before joining ST, I believed that pursuing my passion of working with non-profit organizations was something that could only be accomplished outside of work. ST has provided me with the opportunity to turn this passion into a job. I am immensely grateful to work with an organization and clients who continue to inspire this passion daily.

Bryan Tenenhouse

Executive Vice President, Chief Creative Officer

Quote I believe that the best fundraising creative, regardless of channel, taps into our humanity and offers us the opportunity to do something for someone else that keeps us connected to that humanity. That’s what we aspire to do for donors every day at ST and it’s what gets me up in the morning. That, and my dogs of course.

Candice Gregoris

Senior Account Director

Quote The first step to achieving a mutual goal is empathy. You need to truly understand people’s strengths – and the obstacles they’re up against – before you can build a plan to accomplish a goal. It’s absolutely the best way to map out success.

Carol King

Carol Strauss

Account Director

Quote While our goal at ST is to help charities raise more money, the payoff is priceless. One of the biggest rewards in the work we do is knowing I’ve directly contributed to change something for the better. Through our partnerships, somewhere a life experiencing hardship will be easier. Someone is happier, more well, or even had their life saved.

Director, Fundraising Solutions

Quote Helping our clients deliver on their most important high-stakes revenue growth opportunities is what drives me. I love unlocking ST’s leadership and high-performance potential for organizations, aligning our diverse team to deliver data-driven strategies and solutions that raise more money for our clients. I also love walking along the boardwalk with my husband to recharge my batteries and visiting St. Lawrence Market every Saturday morning to buy fresh produce from the local farmers who sell their wares there.

Erika Lopes

Lisa Lenihan

Account Director

Quote There’s some wonderful alchemy in what we do. We start with data & research, add a heap of creativity, toss in liberal doses of psychology and behavioral science, bind it all together with heartstrings, and what comes out is gold. And when we share it, when a project goes out there into market, it gives people the opportunity to be a better if not best version of themselves. Name another career that does that. I’ll wait.

Lisette Gelinas

Quote I help non-profits leverage their brand in the service of fundraising. When those two elements work together creatively, across all channels, and over time, results go up and a charity can raise more money for their cause.

Mimi Maxwell

Senior Art Director

Quote When I was a wee thing I drew and drew and drew. I drew telephones with faces, grapes that tap danced and RVs that could comfortably seat 100. Then I went to L.A. to study illustration for four years and left there with a thirst for graphic design – anything to do with typography. I ended up in New York as an editorial designer. Six years later I landed in my hometown of Toronto. I have now been with ST for almost 13 years.

Nancy Clark

Senior Writer

Quote Writing for nonprofit clients is a fulfilling challenge. Persuading a reader to donate means transforming a financial transaction into an emotional decision that comes from the heart. Each charity is unique and has stories that need to be told powerfully. The opportunity to be that storyteller is an honour and gives me the chance to help these organizations make a difference in peoples’ lives.

Neil Gallaiford

Principal, Chair of the Board

Quote I spent nearly 15 years as CEO of ST, relinquishing the role in 2020. I have retired from active management and hope I continue to add value by managing special projects, and providing my colleagues with wise counsel accumulated throughout more than 30 years in fundraising. My key focus is to ensure that ST continues to put the clients’ missions at the heart of everything the agency does. We speak truth to power and are committed to completing every project on time and on budget, without exception. I also collect art and was for many years a proud volunteer with the Art Gallery of Ontario. When I travel, I seek out art galleries, and art gallery cafes, which are almost always excellent.

Nicky D’Cunha

Senior Account Coordinator

Quote ST has shown me how you can combine a career with passion and love every single minute of the day.

Nicole Raines

Production Designer

Quote I’ve always loved the “creative meets technical” challenges of being a production designer. Doing it for our non-profit clients with a great team is truly gratifying.
