Meet Keith, Lead Philanthropist & Executive Director of the Stober Family Foundation. Keith's passion for community and philanthropy, coupled with his experience in business development strategy, make him the perfect fit to lead the Stober Foundation. He works diligently to direct, guide, and shape our mutual philanthropic goals. Keith turns our shared philanthropic vision into reality and is the face of the foundation, working directly with local and global charities' initiatives.
Originally from Northern Ontario, Keith ventured westwards to pursue a PhD at the University of British Columbia before moving onwards to UCLA. While his undergraduate and master's degrees focused on both Clinical Psychology and Neurobiology, Keith redirected his academic interests and specialties towards Vascular Physiology, Bariatric Surgery/Medicine, and Metabolism during his graduate and post-graduate research. After academia, Keith pursued a successful career in the food and nutraceutical industries, ultimately selling his food company and discovering his passion for business development and philanthropy.
When not in the office, Keith can usually be found outdoors, in a café, a yoga studio, hiking, or possibly somewhere halfway around the world on a random adventure. Tracking him down is an adventure in and of itself! Some of his favorite hobbies include traveling, music, cycling, swimming, running up mountains, yoga, scuba diving, and sampling food/espresso wherever life takes him.
