About AMLB

Humble Beginnings

Over 30 years ago, our founders’ parents immigrated to Canada and worked hard to build businesses that would provide for their families and contribute positively to society.

Like many business owners, they were focused on serving their customers and growing but often grappled with their financial health.

This is our ‘why’: we are passionate about combining our finance and tax expertise together with an empathetic approach to client care to help leaders and businesses realize their full potential.

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

I attended a boarding school on a mountain in South India for 3 years.

What keeps you active outside of work?

My wife and two young daughters get me away from my screen (sometimes yelling and screaming). I also try to get some tennis and soccer in through the year and enjoy getting involved in causes I care about. Lately, I’ve focused on supporting employment in diverse communities and ending poverty.
