In 1995, Leon Salvail and two associates formed the partnership that became Gevity Consulting Inc. (formerly known as Global Village Consulting Inc.). As President and CEO, Leon has capably guided the company's steady growth since its founding.
After a period focused on enterprise application development, in 2004, Leon directed Gevity's strategic expansion to position itself as a leader in health informatics consulting, and he has since overseen the establishment of an extremely successful consulting practice driven by a strong client base in the healthcare sector across Canada, where the majority of Gevity's business originates today.
Currently, Leon is focusing Gevity’s strategic expansion through focused efforts domestically and internationally, with an Asia Pacific branch office now open in Cebu City, Philippines, a planned 2015 expansion in Singapore, and further projected based expansions in the Middle East, and Europe, and with US and South American initiatives in the planning stages.
Leon has overall responsibility for strategically directing Gevity corporate operations, developing new business and providing strategic and project executive services for Gevity projects. Working with a group of Gevity Managing Partners, Leon pilots the company health informatics business development and recruiting activities to ensure a vibrant, profitable and exciting company. As Chairman of the Board, he works with the Board of Directors to ensure that the overall strategic direction is carefully planned and maintained.
