If you’ve been pranked in our office, it was probably done by Julian. He’s our snazzy dresser with the wide assortment of fun sock – socks to match his mood, the current season, or perhaps to remind him of his most recent vacation. Julian attended Brock University and received his BA (Honours) in Communications Studies. After graduating, Julian spent a year teaching English in South Korea and returned home to Hamilton, where he got his start fundraising at the YMCA. Coincidentally, this is where he also first learned of the United Way, running the YMCA’s staff campaign for a number of years. After a few years doing the commute to Toronto he wanted to continue working in the non-profit sector closer to home and support the society he proudly lives in. Julian was eager to join the team at United Way so that he could combine his past experiences fundraising and building relationships with his connection and love for his hometown. You can find Julian on a SoBi or spending time with friends in and around Hamilton.
