About Us

Our Team

Our consultants have over 100 years of combined experience in international operations for a wide variety of industries, such as consumer products, defence, high-tech including IT and telecom, manufacturing, energy & natural resources, service sector, education, and construction.


The partners and consultants of Business Professionals Group have extensive industry experience and they are proven professional experts in different industries. Our people set us apart; their experience, expertise and credentials enable them to address sophisticated and complex issues.  

Our History

Business Professionals Group was established in 2010 as a financial management consultancy for small and medium enterprises in Canada. We have executed on hundreds of assignments involving business planning, financing, new market development, business process improvement and other aspects of business management.


For over 10 years Business Professional Group has supported and represented businesses – providing strategic advice and representation to generate new business and to help companies grow.

Our Vision

BPG will be a highly regarded professional services firm that is focused on delivering clients’ results. We will be recognized as an independent and innovative firm that is dedicated to providing one-stop, comprehensive suite of services and strategic solutions, and delivers on its promises. 


Our intent is based on a belief that while there are many advisers available to management, few are capable or willing to invest in what is often the most difficult task facing our clients – bringing their organisation together to deliver results.  


What We Believe

Customized Solutions

Neither are two companies alike, nor are the problems they face similar. We understand this and we provide a personal, customized service designed to the individual needs of every business we work with.  

Cost-Savings Approach

We believe a 'lean' thinking, which is why we implement our strategic solutions as cost effectively as possible. We can deliver a complete range of services at competitive rate by consolidating the expertise of our partners and service providers.

Client Focus

Our business is defined by our commitment to lighten the daily burdens of our clients. We focus on simplifying internal processes, increasing efficiency and improving productivity. This focus enables us to help our clients follow a path of  sustainable, revenue-based growth of their organizations.  

Partnerships

Our aim is to earn our clients’ respect on every project we work on and we partner closely to understand their strategic initiatives. We work as a team, demonstrating the highest level of professionalism. 


Unlike other consulting firms, we want to be more than just an advisor; we want to be a trusted partner. True partners work together, leveraging the best in each other to achieve results that far exceed project expectations.  

Efficient Processes

At BPG, we believe in learning first and acting second. Our primary goal is to help our clients implement the best-fit solution, and to do this we follow our own 5-step process: Analysis and Evaluation, Strategy, Agreement and Alignment with client, Implementation, and Ongoing Engagement. This process allows us to pinpoint your exact needs so we can move forward together in the right direction. 

Quality Service

At BPG, we are all about efficiency and effectiveness. That’s why we focus on what you need – it’s about you, not us. With our client-centric approach, our boutique-style consulting firm is able to deliver high quality service customized to your company and its individual needs. 


Our conclusions are clear and balanced, and we aren’t afraid to give an opinion.
