Darryl White, CEO, BMO


Canada’s banks occupy a dominant position not only in financial services, but in the economy as a whole. Accordingly, there’s a lot of power and influence that goes with being a CEO at one of these institutions. Last year, BMO welcomed Darryl White to the top job, replacing Bill Downe, who retired after a decade in the role. BMO is currently Canada’s fourth largest bank in terms of assets, so White’s challenge will be to close the gap between his bank and the top three.
