Robert Ridge



“I am proud to work with a group of dedicated board volunteers and a talented management team to ensure that HIRO continues to deliver world-class care to ABI survivors.  Our focus on innovation and improvement guides our work; our focus on improving lives drives our work.”

Robert holds an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University and is a Chartered Public Accountant.  He has spent most of his thirty-year career helping non-profit organizations such as MedicAlert Foundation Canada, and most currently, Distress Centres of Greater Toronto, become more relevant and sustainable.

Robert first became familiar with ABI through his longstanding involvement as a Board member with Amity-Goodwill in Hamilton.  As a passionate, lifelong Hamiltonian, Robert enjoys contributing back to his community and is inspired to help drive change to support survivors in their transition to a higher level of independence and reintegration into the community.
