When & Where
Bruce M Firestone, PhD
More about Bruce M Firestone, PhD—
Bruce applied to go to McGill University in Montreal at age 14, arrived after turning 15, and graduated as a civil engineer before legally becoming an adult (then, age 21). Bruce worked for the New South Wales government in Sydeny, doing operations research and building mixed integer programming models while continuing his education at the University of New South Wales, where he obtained his Masters of Engineering-Science degree, and then at the Australian National University in Canberra, where he received his PhD in urban economics.
He has been, at different times, an engineer, a real estate developer, a hockey executive (founder of NHL team the Ottawa Senators, Canadian Tire Centre and the Senators Foundation—a children’s charity), a university professor, a consultant, an art collector and benefactor, a writer, columnist, futurist, novelist, keynote speaker and coach. Bruce went back to school in his 50s, completed eight real estate courses, and is a real estate broker with Century 21 Explorer Realty Inc.
Bruce got his start in business in his late 20s with just $10,000 for a downpayment and a yard of guts, which he invested in a faltering business that he turned into a commercial real estate empire; this became the foundation for a successful bid to bring the National Hockey League back to Ottawa after a nearly 60-year hiatus. In just nine years, that business grew from $350,000 in revenues to $120 million. Then Firestone put it all on the line, risking tens of millions of dollars, to bring the Senators back to Ottawa. It became a high tension, multi-faceted endeavor with all the suspense of a Borgia series, with competing cities and political interests aligned against his team’s bid. Their resulting success changed the city of Ottawa and brought a sense of pride to all of Canada at a time when the country was going through another tough recession, and had already lost two existing NHL teams, in Quebec and Winnipeg.
Bruce has started/coached over 300 enterprises as well as taught or studied at McGill University, Laval University, Harvard University, University of Western Ontario, University of New South Wales, Australian National University, University of Ottawa (faculties of management and engineering) and Carleton University (schools of architecture and business).
He is a respected real estate coach with abundant practical experience and training. He is married to a wonderful person, Dawn MacMillan. They have five great kids and two fine grandsons.
