Bruce MacLellan is the founding President & CEO of Proof Strategies. Wanting to work somewhere with smart people solving interesting challenges and who were also kind, he started a new agency.
Bruce’s success combines growing thriving businesses with building strong internal cultures of inclusion, empathy and excellence. He is known for asking good questions and encouraging people to go outside their comfort zone.
Bruce’s commitment to the environment runs deep. It resulted in Proof Strategies becoming the first North American marketing agency to be carbon neutral (since 2008). The company is also the only communications agency ever to be named the #1 workplace in Canada by the Great Places to Work Institute (2010).
An active volunteer, he is the current Chair of Canada’s National History Society, past-Chair of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, past-Chair of the CPRS Foundation, and past-Chair of the Public Relations Bachelor Degree Program Advisory Committee at Humber College.
