Jim Boyle, President and CEO, Foresters Financial

President and CEO

Foresters Financial started the new year with new leadership: Jim Boyle came in as president and CEO in January. Boasting more than three decades of experience in financial services, Boyle is perhaps best known for his time as president and CEO of John Hancock. As such, he is well aware of the challenges of life insurance and asset management in the North American market. After a two-year term as chairman and CEO of Zillion and Restore Health, Boyle laid the ground for stepping into the top job at Foresters after first serving on its board. Now it’s his responsibility to drive business at the firm, which has total of $44 billion in assets under management and operations in Canada, the US and the UK.
