Aharon possesses a unique repertoire of professional and academic experience. Aharon is a lawyer and spent several years practicing law in Victoria. 

Before joining Berlineaton, Aharon acted as legal counsel to public agencies, and domestic and international insurance organizations. His forte was working with business and government leaders in resolving employment-related disputes. Aharon approached his work as a strategically-minded lawyer with a consultative, business-like method to resolving and preventing disputes. Aharon’s goal then and now is to provide clients with the tools they need so that they will become less dependent on the services of lawyers. 

Prior to practicing law in British Columbia, Aharon completed an MBA degree at the University of Victoria (where he also earned a Six Sigma Green Belt) and then joined the Berlineaton team for the first time in the Continuous Improvement, and Strategy Development and Execution practice areas. Aharon had a calling to fulfill in the field of law and has now returned to Berlineaton with extensive domestic and international business experience combined with professional legal experience.  

Aharon has led a number of substantial projects in the firm’s Strategy Development and Execution and Continuous Improvement practice areas. He has been the co-lead on the development of Upper Canada College’s strategic plan in the lead up to the College’s bi-centennial celebrations in 2029. Aharon was also the co-lead on the Thrifty Foods (Sobeys) Store Development Process which created a business process for the development of new Thrifty Foods stores from initial location scoping to ribbon cutting at the grand opening. 

Aharon is an active volunteer and community leader. He is a trained restorative justice facilitator and is a member of the board of directors of Restorative Justice Victoria. Aharon is the president of Congregation Emanu-el, Victoria’s largest Jewish community, which Aharon is proud to have been a member of since birth. 

Aharon’s personal life is centered upon his young daughter whose interests include going to the park, playing on the swings, dogs, Duplo, noodles, puppets and dancing.   


Q and A with Aharon Ittah

Q. Where did you grow up? 

I am one of the lucky ones who was born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia. More specifically, Oak Bay.  My true growing up and self-actualizing happened when I lived in Ireland from age 18 to 26, where I assisted with the daily running of a prominent independent school called Newtown School Waterford (est. 1798) and coached rugby. 

Q. Why did you join Berlineaton? 

This is my second time working with Berlineaton. I first joined the team as a support consultant after completing an MBA degree at the University of Victoria. I absolutely loved working at Berlineaton. 

At that time however I had a goal – a goal that was very important to me – and I needed to realize it.  I wanted to be called to the bar as a lawyer in British Columbia. I was offered an opportunity to do just that, and then practiced as a lawyer. 

Goal achieved, valuable experience gained, it was time to return to what I loved at first sight, but now I do so with a few extra items in my toolbox. I am now in the privileged position to guide clients and visionary leaders towards further greatness.

Q. When you bump into someone from high school, how do you explain what you do in your work at Berlineaton?

I tell others that I am in the business of working with visionary leaders to improve upon their organization’s processes and plan for future success. Generally, I am asked to give an example and I will usually dissect that person’s morning routine with a view to making it more efficient so that she/he can stay in bed 15 or 20 minutes longer. 

Q. What does it mean to “be bold” in a workplace?

To be bold is to not be afraid to take chances and think differently about problem solving. Being bold means taking a direct approach - being decisive and creative when it comes to remediating an issue. RISK, although a four letter word, is part of being bold.

Q. Rock concert, jazz festival, school play or something entirely different? 

Right now, puppets and dancing with my daughter.
