Victor Dodig, President and CEO of CIBC
Victor Dodig is President and CEO of CIBC.
Victor grew up in a tough inner-city neighbourhood, the child of working-class immigrants. One of his earliest jobs was hanging pork bellies in a meat-packing plant. Humble beginnings for the man who now leads one of Canada’s largest financial institutions.
Our conversation touches on the kindness of strangers, the mentors who shaped his career, and how there’s no room at Victor’s bank for big egos and swinging for fences. Plus: why one of Canada’s top bankers makes a trip to Disney World every year.
