Adam Guy - MALMember at Large: Adam Guy Adam has lived in Hamilton for the last 3 years native to Sudbury, transplanted to Toronto for  many years, his roots are now planted firmly in Kirkendall as a new homeowner. He is a traveler, cyclist, hiker and frequenter of Locke St. shops and restaurants and regularly engages in the spoils that the neighbourhood and region have to offer. He adheres to a philosophy of “complete streets” and community engagement, but is still learning how to put such ideas into practice. By trade, he is a management consultant in KPMG’s advisory practice and works primarily with government organizations – most often in the improvement of healthcare service delivery.  He is passionate about helping organizations reorient themselves towards the customer, patient, client or citizen and his experience transcends every major part of transformation project – from strategic planning to implementation. He is very excited about the current and future promise of the community and hopes to get to better know his neighbours by being of service to the association.
