Steve Gregory

Founder and Chairman

Stephen (Steve) Gregory, MSM has led IsaiX Technologies Inc., a firm specializes in organizational development and technology for sales, since 1989. In addition, he sits as a director on the boards of two TSX-listed public companies.

In 2006, he co-founded the “3rd Battery of Montreal Artillery,” a charity which supports cadets and veterans. In 2015, he co-founded The Respect Campaign, which facilitates a national networking initiative involving forums in more than 20 Canadian cities. This network promotes collaboration among stakeholders, who support the mental health of our men and women in uniformed service. In various capacities, he has assisted in raising over $3 million for the families of our troops, and various community outreach initiatives.

Steve, supported by teams of volunteers in Canada, Sicily and Holland, organized 325-km marches across Sicily in 2013, 2018, and 2023. The marches honoured those who fought and died on all sides, during Operation Husky, the Allied campaign in Sicily in 1943. Three Op Husky documentaries are now broadcast in Italy and Canada, keeping alive the memory of the fallen and the history of the Allied campaign. In 2023, Steve and his team of Sicilian volunteers opened the Walk for Remembrance & Peace (Il percorso per il ricordo e la pace), a 325-km fully mapped walking trail, designed to highlight the fact that Sicily is the first example of successful peacebuilding by Allied armies, following the invasion of Sicily, and subsequent liberation of Italy in 1943.
