Dean Connor, President and CEO of Sun Life Financial

Published by Speaking of Business Podcast on

Today I’m speaking with Dean Connor, President and CEO of Sun Life Financial.

Sun Life is one of the world’s top insurance companies, and Dean is one of Canada’s most decorated CEOs. He was Ivey Business Leader of the Year in 2018, CEO of the Year in 2017, and Top New CEO in 2014. But back when he was still a young man, Dean’s career path wasn’t exactly obvious.

In this episode, we’ll hear how a much-loved hobby very nearly led him in a different direction.We’ll also find out about the time he learned not to hide his emotions. And why it’s so important for Canadians to match the faster “clock speed” of business in the United States and Asia.
