Born in Harriston, Ontario, Neil was the first graduate of Conestoga College in Kitchener, and lives in Waterloo with his first wife, Helen. When not speaking, he is kept busy as the Senior Manager of Market Development for Melloul-Blamey Construction, one of Ontario’s largest and most diversified construction firms. Previously, he spent 6 years as Director of Development for Drayton Entertainment, one of Canada’s most successful theatre companies. Neil is involved in a number of community events, activities and associations. He is a charter member of the Kitchener Westmount Rotary Club and has three times been named a Paul Harris Fellow, Rotary’s highest award for community service. In November 2002, Neil was the recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal, and again in 2012 he was presented the Queen’s Diamond Jubliee Medal for having made a significant contribution to Canada at home and abroad. The City of Waterloo named him a recipient of ‘The Waterloo Award’ for outstanding community service, in December 2015, and the next year Kitchener Lions named him Kitchener-Waterloo Citizen of the Year.
