Toronto — Jeffrey Gallant, BCom’11, has been selected as a member of the Global Shapers community established by the World Economic Forum (WEF). The designation recognizes “extraordinary individuals with great potential for future leadership” who are between 20 and 30 years of age. His membership in the community came as a result of his involvement with numerous charitable organizations, social advisory initiatives, and passion for generating a positive impact within his own community and the world at large at a young age.
During his undergraduate career, Jeffrey was the Chief Strategy Officer for the Queen’s University Investment Counsel (QUIC), Canada’s premier student-run asset management organization.
“Jeffrey was a passionate advocate for QUIC and a great asset to the team,” says Peter Copestake, QSB’s Executive-in-Residence and Chair of QUIC’s Board of Directors. “I’m delighted and not at all surprised that his talents and leadership qualities have been recognized by such a prestigious international organization.”
As described on WEF’s website, “Global Shapers are organized in a network of local hubs based in each major city around the world. They undertake events and activities that generate a positive impact within their local community. Global Shapers will have an impact by catalyzing and enhancing, individually and collectively, fresh ideas and entrepreneurial solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.”
Jeffrey is an Analyst at Gluskin Sheff + Associates, a Toronto-based independent investment firm for high net-worth investors and institutions.
