Building a professional accounting practice takes years of dedication, hard work and trust. It also takes a commitment to community. Greg was raised near the small agricultural community of Landis, Saskatchewan, where the roots of strong community values and the mantra of looking out for your neighbour were instilled in him by his parents, Ed and Fay Keller, and are still carried on by his nine siblings in the communities in which they live. Greg moved to Saskatoon in 1984 to attend the University of Saskatchewan where he received his Bachelor of Commerce degree in accounting and computer science in 1990. Receiving his chartered accountant designation in 1994, he joined Hergott Duval Stack LLP in 1996 and became a partner in 2005. Greg’s focus is owner-managed business including those in the agricultural sector.
Greg believes in giving back, both as a volunteer and financially, to the community in which he practices. Greg supports the fundraising efforts of many local charities as well as giving time and expertise to many community projects.
Greg has been a member of the Canadian Progress Club – Saskatoon Downtown since 1999, was treasurer for several years, and is currently the president of this local club. In 2010, Greg joined the board of Saskatoon Community Foundation and sits on the audit committee and was on the sponsorship and ticket committees for the PotashCorp Mayor’s Cultural Gala.
Greg’s community involvement has also included assisting with managing Worldfest during the 2010 World Junior Hockey Championships, being a former board member (President and Treasurer) of Big Brothers of Saskatoon (now Big Brothers Big Sisters), sitting as a campaign cabinet team member for the United Way Campaign, and acting as treasurer of the Briarwood Community Association. He has also been involved in the St. Augustine Parish in their funding efforts with respect to Holy Family Cathedral and Catholic Pastoral Centre.
As a board member at Saskatoon Community Foundation, he felt that it was important to not only commit time, but also commit to establishing a personal legacy with his family. Greg is supported in his community involvement and professional practice by his wife Rhonda and they also encourage their values of community involvement to their two young daughters by involving them in sporting and musical activities. The Rhonda and Greg Keller Family Fund is an unrestricted fund which will assist in supporting charitable needs in Saskatoon, forever.
