Samuel Saintonge

Principal

Sam’s research on investment opportunities means that XPV is always partnering with the most innovative companies in the water sector. He develops meaningful relationships with our partners and works with them post-investment to realize their business goals.

Sam is a Director of Newterra Group Ltd.

While pursuing his BBA in Finance and Economics as a Williams Scholar, Sam co-founded ACE*Bishop’s Consulting Group where he worked with small businesses helping raise capital, advising acquisitions, and developing growth strategies.  Sam was Chairman and Portfolio Manager for the Seed Portfolio at the Williams School of Business from 2004-2006.

He was awarded the Student Leader of the Year Award by Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship (now Enactus), received an Assistantship to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and was Captain of the world championship team at the Network of International Business School’s case competition in Oslo, Norway.

A former hockey player, Sam is now an avid endurance sport competitor, focusing on Olympic distance triathlons and marathons. When they can get away, Sam and his wife Robyn enjoy driving through all parts of North America where he somehow manages to find his way to all sorts of water and wastewater treatment plants. Sam is (inexplicably) a Cleveland Browns fan and follows college football closely.
