Joanne De Laurentiis

Joanne De Laurentiis of Investment Funds Institute of Canada is on Wealth Professional Canada's Hot List of 2015.

No doubt about it: The big task in the industry this year was the continuing scramble to get ready for CRM2. The time and IT investments to get compliant have been significant. As the head of the IFIC, De Laurentiis was at the center of the storm. To her immense credit, she ably steered the organization through this challenging period. That the implementation of CRM2 continues to unfold smoothly is due largely to the behind-the-scenes work of De Laurentiis and everyone else at IFIC.
