Change and Transition at Davis Martindale
‘We have had great staff and client relationships for over 50 years at Davis Martindale and we look forward to Rick leading us as we continue with such great relationships’
Bruce Barran, Partner (previous Managing Partner)
It is with great pleasure that we announce Rick Santos as Davis Martindale’s new Managing Partner. In 2009 and after only 3 years with the firm, Rick was invited into Partnership. As Managing Partner, he will now manage our team of 95+ professionals.
‘We thank Bruce for his many years of contributions to the firm as a Tax Partner and as our Managing Partner. His leadership and selflessness has set our firm up for success.’ Rick Santos, new Managing Partner
Bruce Barran, Davis Martindale’s previous Managing Partner, along with the other Partners, felt it was time for the senior leadership to change and transition to keep up with the rapidly changing business world.
‘There is a vast amount of history that needs to be transitioned and I wanted to be sure I was around long enough to ensure that the transition happens smoothly. Rick has been an integral part of the leadership team for the past few years and brings with him new ideas on how to implement change including how to be adaptive to technology changes. We felt it was time for the next generation of leaders to step forward to lead the firm and I am 100% supportive of Rick in this role.’ Bruce Barran, Partner (previous Managing Partner)
Along with his Managing Partner duties, Rick concentrates on providing assurance and corporate finance services to our clients within numerous industries including construction, healthcare, manufacturing, not-for-profit and professionals. He was a part-time professor at King’s University College (Western) for 10 years and is still strongly committed to being active in his community including coaching, board positions and two Treasurer Positions.
‘I look forward to solidifying our firm as the independent mid-market leader in Southwestern Ontario, building on our current depth of service offering to our clients, and leveraging technology to continually enhance our client experience.’ Rick Santos, new Managing Partner
Rick is ready to lead Davis Martindale into the future and as a firm, we are looking forward to where the journey will take us.
