James O’Sullivan, IGM Financial

President and CEO

James O’Sullivan took over as president and CEO of IGM Financial in late 2020, replacing Jeff Carney. Prior to joining IGM, O’Sullivan spent more than 30 years with Scotiabank, including as group head of Canadian banking. He will now be tasked with continuing the momentum Carney built.

“There is a sufficient amount of change going on in this industry that there’s going to be winners and there’s going to be losers,” O’Sullivan told Bloomberg in 2020. “I love the amount of change that’s out there in the industry. My job, with the executive team, is to position this company to emerge a winner in the face of it.”

A division of Power Corporation, IGM Financial oversees IG Wealth Management and Mackenzie Investments. In addition to a large network of financial advisors, IG Wealth Management also offers an exclusive family of mutual funds that earned eight FundGrade A+ Awards in 2020
