Mack Crawford, Com’09

Mack is the President and Co-Founder of Longridge Partners Inc., a real estate investment company founded in Toronto. The managed portfolio consists of more than 2000 acres of land in the Greater Toronto Area, with the protection of natural features and prioritization of sustainable development at the helm of everything we do. 

Longridge provides management services on behalf of institutional and high net worth investors with our expertise lying in identifying properties suitable for investment with our partners, deal structuring, and managing the carrying responsibilities and property management services on behalf of our investors.

Joel Greaves, Com’09

Joel is the founder and CEO of Somewhere Inn, a new nature-inspired hospitality brand. Somewhere Inn is an intersection of several passions for Joel: travel and hospitality, the great outdoors, and mental health advocacy. For him, the company was born out of the idea that leaving urban environments to spend extended time in nature with friends and loved ones is critical to our well-being.

Joel started his career in the Telecom industry where he led several product and marketing teams over the span of 12 years. In parallel, Joel quietly became a serial entrepreneur, purchasing Toronto-based luxury property maintenance company Zebrano Concierge in 2016, and building a successful luxury cottage rental in Muskoka. 

In early 2021, Joel made the decision to leave Telecom to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a full-time entrepreneur. After closing an angel-backed raise, Joel moved to Calabogie, joining a growing community of like-minded entrepreneurs, and began working on Somewhere Inn.
