President and CEO
Brian Porter is president and CEO of Canada’s third largest bank, which holds approximately $1.2 trillion in assets as of January 31. Porter joined Scotiabank in 1981 and progressed through a series of increasingly senior positions before being named president of the bank in 2012 and CEO in 2013.
Scotiabank has a team of approximately 100,000 employees and serves more than 10 million retail, small business and commercial customers. Last November, Scotiabank formally launched its global wealth management division, a move that was aided by its headline-grabbing acquisitions of MD Financial Management and Jarislowsky Fraser.
