Wayne Cosgrove retired from active participation with the firm in 2008 on the 50th anniversary of the start of his career with Peat Marwick (now KPMG).

He was raised on a farm in Northern Ontario and quarterbacked his high school football team. As a young C.A. he brought a combination of work ethic, competitive spirit and financial skills to companies as diverse as Loeb, National Drug, Shaw Industries, Metro Toronto and Dunlop/Slazenger, always introducing positive change with a focus on the bottom line.

In 1986, he founded Cosgrove Associates who were retained by a prominent Bay Street law firm to develop and implement a profit planning system. The project was highly successful and their involvement was extended to all areas of firm management including strategy, marketing, finance, automation and administration.

This work culminated in directly assisting in negotiation of a successful merger to form one of Canada's top legal firms.

Following that merger, Cosgrove and his associates have introduced their grass roots concepts and systems with great success to small and medium size firms on a wide geographic front.

In retirement, Wayne continues to be available to the firm for consultation and maintains the balance he has taught to busy lawyers over the years in volunteer work, physical fitness, continuing studies and writing, including contributing to "Anson's Folly, The Story of Iroquois Falls", Wayne's hometown.
