Negar Haghighat

Negar is always looking for excellence. She applies her ethos to every project that she dedicates herself to, from advising new entrepreneurs to steering non-profit boards. 

Her keen interest in sharing more than 15 years of well-honed business acumen with the social sector makes her a highly valued asset in the creation of any strategic or governance plan. She has been merging her passions for community service and business stewardship for the past 6 years as a consultant, all the while continuing her quest for knowledge by acquiring certification from the College des administrateurs in Nonprofit Governance.

Negar was drawn to collaborating with Phil because she felt an affinity to the company’s values. Because of Phil’s capacity building mission within the social sector, Negar felt that her contribution as an experienced strategic planner aligned naturally with our unique B-corp goals. This consummate professional also puts her rich experience to use in her community through numerous volunteer commitments including being a mentor with Futurpreneur and sitting on the board of the United Way (Centraide du Grand Montreal), as well as other local organizations that address the critical issues of poverty and education.

She is always looking to add to her toolbox of knowledge by reading exclusively from the non-fiction section of her favorite bookstore and prefers hiking to lounging on the beach when on vacation. Although you might not guess it from the spirited one-on-one conversations you have with Negar, she comfortably admits to being an introvert who enjoys the odd glass of wine and a well curated collection of 70s soul music on her playlist.
