JEFF LEHMAN BIOGRAPHY

Jeff Lehman has become a sought-after leader delivering organizational, policy, and community change through a twenty-five-year business and political career. A gifted communicator, Jeff has translated his core technical competencies in economics, land use, and change management into successful leadership in the political arena, the boardroom, and at kitchen tables and town halls in Barrie.

Jeff Lehman has received a number of awards during his time as Mayor. In 2017, he was awarded the Gil Bennett Award by the Conference Board of Canada’s Director’s College for excellence in corporate governance education.

Jeff Lehman was also named the 2017 Community Leader Influencer of the Year by the Economic Developers Council of Ontario. In 2019, the prestigious US business magazine Fast Company named Lehman number 26 in its top 100 Most Creative People in Business for his innovative solutions in government, a rare recognition for a local government official.

Jeff’s ability to convey the reasons for change in an emotionally and rationally compelling manner led to success in delivering cultural change within the City of Barrie as a large and diverse organization, and on a community level with the broader public.

Jeff’s unique ability is in bringing diverse stakeholders together behind common purpose, through the crafting and delivery of compelling cases for change.  First as a faculty member at the UK’s prestigious London School of Economics, then as an economist who co-founded and built a consultancy, he helped reshape the way major transportation, real estate, and policy projects were delivered and executed by government and private sector clients.  As Mayor of Barrie since 2010, he has become a nationally recognized leader for the way he has brought together his community to respond to crises and to confront strategic challenges:

  • Over three terms as Mayor of Barrie, twice re-elected with more than 90% of the popular vote, he used this platform to deliver innovative solutions to urban challenges that moved his city forward, particularly in economic development, finance, and social justice;
  • Twice elected by his peers as Chair of Ontario’s Big City Mayors Caucus (the Mayors of Ontario’s 28 cities with more than 100,000 population), built a full-time support team and organized Mayors into an effective communications and lobbying organization;
  • As a founding Director, helped unify eight shareholders behind the 2016 “mega-merger” in the electricity sector that created Alectra, the second-largest community owned utility in North America, serving more than 3 million customers in southern Ontario
  • Created the Barrie Health Accord, an agreement among the City of Barrie, County of Simcoe, Royal Victoria Hospital, Public Health, and the Barrie Police Service, to commit to joint capital planning for upstream investments to reduce emergencies and address social issues.
