The Canada Life Assurance Company


I lead the awareness, adoption, and advancement of TBM at Great-West Lifeco / Canada Life. We began our TBM journey about 5 years ago and have been steadily progressing on our roadmap to maximize the transparency and value of IT. I have 25+ years experience in technology, all with Canada Life.

I am also a member of the TBM Council Insurance Workgroup where we are making great progress on the definition and build out of taxonomy for business services in the insurance industry.

I am passionate about technology business management and am always looking for hints from others on how to improve our use of TBM at Canada Life. I am currently spending my days advancing the following:

  • Cloud allocation strategy
  • Business Service alignment with Service Now and Business Capabilities
  • Value metrics
  • The practice of TBM within our organization
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and getting outside as much as possible.
