Gary Breininger, President/Owner

Hello, my name is Gary Breininger, and I'm the principal of BGR Coaching & Strategic Solutions.  I'm also very passionate about working with forward-thinking Presidents, CEO's and other senior leaders who are committed to creating an inspired organization and culture that reaches new heights of sustained performance and results.

This passion comes from my strong belief in the value of, and dedication to, helping others achieve greater clarity in terms of where they are now, where they want to go, and how to get there in a way that works best for them, and using this insight to collaboratively and creatively develop solutions that will allow them to achieve the success they want.

My key qualifications include:

  • Extensive real-world business strategy and leadership experience in the public, private and non-profit sectors that dates back to 1986, when I started my professional career and spent 10 years rising through the ranks of the sales and marketing departments of two Fortune 500 corporations, and left as National Director of Marketing for UPS Canada
  • Above includes successfully running my own business since 1997 providing a range of services including strategic marketing and business strategy consulting, market research, and organizational/executive coaching
  • Currently serve as a Chair for Mackay CEO Forums, a peer group organization with over 700 members from British Columbia to Ontario that specializes in accelerating the performance of growth-oriented Presidents, CEO's and other senior leaders of organizations with $10M in annual revenue and above
  • Serving as a Director on several organizational Board's and Advisory Councils
  • iPEC Core Energy Leadership Certified Professional Coach
  • Various other designations relating to the work we do at BGR, including the International Coaching Federation's ACC, iPEC Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner, WHY Coach Certification and Taylor Protocols Core Values Index Master Practitioner

Whether your organization is a Fortune 500 corporation, a smaller firm looking to grow, or anywhere in between we're here to assist you in developing, optimizing and aligning your purpose, strategy, and people to create a highly inspired organization that breaks through to new heights of sustained performance and results.

This is very important to me because I also strongly believe people STILL do business with people first, and without collaboration, engagement, effectiveness and inspiration at the leadership, team and individual level, no organization can ever truly succeed over the long run.

If you have any questions about our unique Inspired Organization Blueprint and how it can help support the success of you and your organization, or anything else about our company please reach out to me personally.

Thanks for visiting our web site!

Sangeeta Singh-Breininger, Managing Director

Sangeeta is the Managing Director of BGR Coaching & Strategic Solutions, and believes in doing things right - that there is a proper and correct way to do things - and there is no place for skimping on details or cutting corners when pursuing an important goal or objective.

To achieve success she uses procedures and systems that have been proven to work to produce the outcomes desired.

Sangeeta also believes in clarity and simplicity, and in operations that run smoothly because they have been tested. She embraces order, and instills it in both her personal and business life.

She recognizes that different departments in an organization have different needs, yet there is always a “right way” to get things done - and that part of true leadership is to help others determine what the right and best way is for themselves.
 
Sangeeta's professional coaching certification with iPEC (Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching), Master’s Degree in Kinesiology, and 26 years of experience in general business management, operations, and personal fitness training has given her the knowledge required to help forward thinking senior leaders create the inspired organization and culture they want, and their people to achieve the success they desire.

Maricke Emanoilidis (Associate Coach)

Maricke believes in contributing to the success of, and making a difference in the lives of others.

During her eighteen-year career span Maricke has dedicated herself to roles in the fields of Sales, Operations, and Human Resources, where she ran the Canadian HR function for Dealertrack Technologies.

She viewed each role as a privilege and an opportunity to do what she does best; to contribute in a meaningful way to the success of others by asking questions, challenging the status quo, and looking for ways to innovate.

Her passion and dedication to each of the organizations she's had the privilege to be engaged with were evident in her caring and compassionate approach.

It was her profound curiosity of how things could be different that ultimately led Maricke to the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), where in 2011 she completed their Coach Centric Leadership Engagement Program (CCLEP), and then in 2014 became a Certified Professional Coach (CPP) and Energy Leadership Master Practitioner (ELI-MP).

Maricke is the founder and owner of ME First Life Coaching, and an Associate Coach with BGR Coaching & Strategic Solutions, where she helps senior leaders and their team members create inspired organizations, cultures and lives.

Helping people discover their core inner values, their inner motivations and how they show up to others enables Lori's clients to prioritize what they want to focus their energy on to love their life.
