Gautam Nath For Change
By profession, I am an MBA with marketing specialization and over 35 years of corporate experience working with large multinational corporations overseas and in Canada.
My key strengths include but are not limited to strategic insights, corporate communications, market intelligence, building strong foundations, financial prudence, and human resource management.
I believe in the goodness of people and that we all deserve a good environment to live peacefully, grow, contribute and raise a family.
Since coming to Canada, I have been working in the field of multicultural marketing and have grown to become one of a handful of multicultural marketing experts in the country. My other passion is in working with people and mentoring them and empowering them in making Canada a better place to live.
I have devoted hours, days, weeks, months and years in outreach methods touching the hearts and lives of many individuals, corporations, and agencies.
I was one of the top 100 marketing professionals in India before I immigrated to Canada.
In 2011, I was recognized as Canada’s Top 25 Immigrants and since then have been on the jury to help select Top 25 Canadian immigrants each year.
In 2017, based on my continued work with new Canadians, community outreach, supporting the cause of Canada’s diversity, I was on of 14 individuals in Ontario to receive the province’s highest recognition for voluntarism, The June Callwood Outstanding Achievement Award for Voluntarism.
My work in promoting diversity and inclusiveness was further supported by the recognition as Canada’s top 50 Board Diversity professionals.
My passion and dedication to bringing a difference and making Canada great was further reflected in being the recipient of Canada’s highest order for Volunteers, The Sovereign’s medal for volunteers.
I am today an internationally published author with the recent launch of the Amazon series book titled Journeys to Success Volume 9. I am also a television series host for the show named Canada’s Diversity by That Channel, an online television and radio media house.
My wife Vineeta is in education at York University and we have lived in Toronto ever since arriving in Canada ten years ago and this is home. We have travelled the journey of a new Canadian, leaving family and friends and a safety net behind to embark on this great adventure as many others and we are proud to be good Canadian citizens.
Please read the section on why I would like to be mayor, and hope that you share this emotion and come out to vote for me.
