As a third generation business owner, Bryan knows first-hand the unique issues facing family businesses. The blending of FAMILY and BUSINESS is seldom easy or simple. Bryan is someone that has both gone through generational transition with his family and implemented succession strategies with his coaching clients.
Originally from New Brunswick, Bryan has lived in Ontario for the last fourteen years. He holds a B.Sc. in chemistry from Dalhousie University and a MBA from Liberty University (his full CV can be found at LinkedIn.com/in/bryanemmerson).
Since the age of seventeen Bryan has been an avid martial artist, and currently holds a blue sash in Shaolin Kung-Fu, a brown belt in karate and a second degree black belt in jiu-jitsu. He also enjoys reading, motorcycling, downhill skiing, and is an active member of his church. Bryan and his wife, Darcy, have been married for 31 years. Their daughter, Alexandria, is a second grade school teacher and lives with her husband in Tennessee, and their son, David, is married and is a medical technician with the Canadian Armed Forces. They also own two Siberian Huskies, Saber and Willow.
