Adam M. Gane B.ENG
Financial Coach and CEO
Adam grew up learning to manage his finances from both his parents. He became interested in the family business at age 16, when he learned the strategies that taught him how to recover the cost and interest of major capital purchases -his first major purchase was his motorcycle!
Adam has his diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology from Algonquin College and a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Lakehead University. Adam acquired an engineering job in Saskatoon, SK where he worked for 2 years. After a year and a half of engineering he decided he would rather teach people how their own ‘Private Financing System’ can help improve their life. He completed his full Life License and then started to coach in his spare time. He joined Gane Financial full time in 2014, where he worked in Saskatoon, for a year. Adam is now working at the main office in Barrie, ON but still represents clients in Western Canada.
Adam is energetic and full of practical new ideas that aid in the coaching of our younger clientele. He brings different viewpoints to many areas within the business, and he has a natural ability to explain concepts and strategies in a logical and clear manner.
Some of Adam's favourite things include volleyball, golf, basketball, baseball, hockey, tennis, anything on the water, camping, reading, playing guitar, and spending time with his friends.

Sheila Langdon Gane
Passionate and full of life, Sheila Gane is the partner and ‘Executive Manager’ of Gane Financial.
Sheila’s joyous and easy-going energy adds an important balance to the office, as her creative ideas and unique ability for transforming ideas into action steps has allowed Gane Financial to set its sails through new waters.
She and her husband Rich have been self-employed business owners for almost 3 decades and with Gane Financial for over 20 years in Barrie, Ontario. Sheila places a high value on the time freedom that comes with being self-employed and claims one of the highlights of her life was raising her two children, Ginny and Adam.
Sheila believes a pivotal point in her life came in 1976 when she read “Your Erroneous Zones” by Wayne Dyer. She was introduced to the concept of personal control over one's thoughts and how thoughts determine actions and thus behaviour. Wayne Dyer opened up a world of amazing authors and knowledge, and she was honoured to meet him in person in 2003.
When not involved with work, Sheila enjoys sailing, cycling, walking, kayaking, camping, knitting, reading, good friends and travelling.
