Tony Poole

Toronto, Canada | Retired Insurance Senior Executive

Retired Insurance Senior Executive with over 30 years of diverse experience as CEO and President across Canada and the United States. This experience is centered on a base of financial services, insurance, technology, business development, mergers & acquisitions, sales and marketing where strategy and tactical execution start and finish with the understanding and meeting of shareholder and customer needs.

In particular, my role as a senior executive in the insurance and financial services sector has honed my risk management, compliance, regulatory and capital management skills. I am able to move from strategic visionary to nimble tactical manager focused on bottom line financial results while growing business value for shareholders.

Creating and building effective management teams through a participative and consensus oriented team-building approach has been a key area of my success. I have a demonstrated ability to identify and fill gaps with skilled business leaders and managers. This success in team building has been predicated on allowing individuals to take pride, ownership and accountability for their own work.
