Jonathan Biffis

Chief Operating Officer CPA, CA

What are you surprisingly good at?

I enjoy playing horseshoe and I’m pretty good at it. The trick is to line up your feet to the peg!

What are you most passionate about?

Continuously learning is important to me. I’m always listening to podcasts and reading books on how to better spend your time and learn things more quickly. Actually, I listen to podcasts more than I read books so that I can multi-task and make more use of my time.

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

Not currently, but in the past I have been involved Big Brothers Big Sisters Ottawa. Giving other children the same opportunities I had is very important to me.

What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

Definitely receiving my CPA. A lot of long hours of studying were put into it and it paid off for sure. I also renovated a house! Well, my brother helped a lot… But it was a huge project to accomplish.

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

I want to be able to travel to the past and into the future. They say hindsight is 20/20. Time traveling would help me see what I have done in the past and learn for the future. I also want to be able to relive my past as there have been really fun series of events that I wish I could go back to.

What are your favourite hobbies, sports team, and/or food?

I am a big hockey and football fan. My favourite teams are the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Jets, respectively. I’m also an avid music listener and spend my spare time attending concerts. One of the biggest highlights was seeing Roger Waters perform “The Wall” live.
