Dave Addison’s life is one of both personal and professional transformation. Dave spent 25 years in various corporate leadership roles in business development and general management, but values conflicts and a mental health crisis convinced him to make changes in his life.
After leaving the corporate world, Dave became the Executive Director of Toronto City Mission (the oldest and longest running mission in the City). TCM’s focus is serving children and families impacted by poverty which is consistent with Dave’s long history of volunteering with organizations that help the marginalized.
Presently, Dave is a strategic consultant to small businesses and spends much of his personal time as an active lay leader at St. Paul’s Bloor Street.
Dave is a recovered alcoholic and also has the lived experience of parenting a child with substance use disorder.
