What are you personally most proud of? My Family and My career My two children, now in their twenty’s. Both are independent, living and working in Toronto, who have travelled and explored all over the world. They’re both respectful and tolerant of the world around them and a thrill to watch as their lives evolve. What do you do to relax when you're not working? I love outdoor activities; fishing mostly on the lakes around our home, also wilderness canoeing, hiking, biking, none of which there seems to be enough time to enjoy more of.- Gary Connolly

Gary began his accounting career in 1978, starting in industry with Cadbury Schweppes Powell in St Catharines. A professional life in Public Accounting began in 1981 articling with a Toronto CA Firm while at the same time completing a university degree at night. Gary received a Bachelor of Administrative Studies degree from York University in 1983 followed by a Chartered Accountant designation in 1985.

He moved to the Ottawa Valley in 1989 with his wife and children to again take a job in industry as Controller. This brought him in close proximity to the Ottawa area and the eventual return to Public Accounting in Kanata. Gary joined Connolly & McNamara in 1990 prior to merging with Crowe BGK in August 2015. He enjoys being a professional advisor to business owners and individuals. His expertise extends to all the services provided by the firm.

Gary has a particular interest in corporate reorganizations, purchase and sale of a business, use of trusts, estate planning, corporate and personal tax planning and succession planning. Gary receives a continuous stream of referrals from clients and business associates. This is testimony to the excellence of his work and to his caring way of listening to clients and meeting their needs.
