Steve Wardle, Research

I’m Steve and I’m a treasure hunter. I’ve dug up facts on everything from the Canadian petroleum industry to the charitable sector to my own family tree (back to the 15 century!), and find a thrill in the chase.


I’ve helped dozens of executives find their life’s work through corporate research and today help charities locate benefactors for their meaningful causes. I’m the research guy at Pivot, here to make your communication, community investment initiative or cultural program more compelling through facts.


Not surprising, my BA is in History and I have a graduate degree in Library and Information Science, for extra street cred. I live in Toronto with Mel and Abe and also like hiking and canoeing, along with gardening. But unlike Mel, I don’t simply tolerate running; I conquer it.
