As a CEO coach and business consultant David brings to the table an expansive range of talents, from a high-level legal perspective and complex problem solving skills to the execution of personal and business transformations. He has made it his mission to be a big-picture generalist, having been “on the other side of a lot of different desks” as a lawyer, turnaround specialist, executive, and business owner, in industries from real estate development to boat manufacturing and healthcare.

This wealth of experience has informed a unique ability to see and understand the myriad connections in an increasingly complex workplace and global economy. His clients value him as a strategist who helps them to anticipate, innovate and influence future outcomes and he brings those same talents to coaching his TEC group. He has never lost touch with his grounded Maritime roots or quick sense of humour.

“Our members stay committed and involved primarily because of the ‘care-frontational’ conversations and respectful truth-telling they realize they can’t get anywhere else.”

Eighteen years ago, David founded Rubin & Associates Inc. to help executives, professionals and their teams improve leadership and team performance, increase productivity and manage the art and science of change. David’s record on successful turnarounds includes a 107% improvement in manufacturing capacity and 120% sales increase at separate companies. His firm has helped thousands of employees across Canada through complex corporate change. He is however, most proud of the many people positively impacted by his consulting work in Guyana and as Chair of the Vaughan Community Health Centre.
