President & CEO,
Gluskin Sheff + Associates Inc.

Supporting research in diabetes

Mr. Freedman is President & Chief Executive Officer of Gluskin Sheff + Associates Inc., one of Canada’s pre-eminent wealth management firms.

He received a Juris Doctorate degree from Queen's University in 1982 and was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1984. While at Queen's University, he was elected Rector of the University and served in this capacity from 1980-1982.

Mr. Freedman received a Masters of Business Administration degree from the Harvard Business School in 1986, graduating as a Baker Scholar.

Prior to joining Gluskin Sheff in March of 2000, Mr. Freedman was a partner and a senior litigation counsel with the Toronto law firm of Davies Ward & Beck.

Mr. Freedman is married to Judith Finer Freedman of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and together they are the parents of three teenagers. Accordingly, a good sense of humour is a key survival tool. He is also an avid golfer, having represented Canada at the Maccabiah Games in Israel in 2005, and again in 2013.

Mr. Freedman is a member of the Boards of Directors of the Diabetes Hope Foundation, the Jerusalem Foundation and the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies.
