IG Wealth Management | Jun 2008 - Jul 2019

Financial Consultant, CFP, PFP, FMA

I successfully built a financial planning practice from ground zero to over $14 million in assets under administration. I promoted the advantages of group health and retirement plans to small business owners, improving productivity and employee satisfaction, leading to over $125,000 in annual premiums. I executed multiple client acquisition strategies including: targeted direct mail and e-mail campaigns, networking with my warm market and centers of influence, sponsoring local charity golf tournaments for lead generation, and networking through volunteering with local community associations. I proactively maintained timely and relevant communications with clients and prospects through the contact management software system to meet client servicing objectives and for potential referrals. I established meaningful client relationships through the six steps of financial planning, gaining a deep understanding of client goals and objectives accompanied by detailed financial plans to achieve their respective goals.

MD Financial Management | Gestion financière MD | Jun 2002 - Apr 2008

Senior Business Analyst, Business Intelligence

I championed the design, prototype, launch and implementation of IBM (Cognos) business intelligence solutions built around key performance indicators, supporting key stakeholders to drive business growth and achieve corporate targets. The initiative led to a doubling of the number of end users seeking access to the decision support solutions.

MD Financial Management | Gestion financière MD | Jun 2000 - Jun 2002

Market Research Analyst

I built a detailed financial model in Excel to estimate the average debt levels of physicians at each stage of career progression, from student to practicing physician. The model was in support of an MD Banking Referral Service initiative and derived from a quantitative study on physician debt levels. The model, in combination with the research findings, proved instrumental in estimating market penetration rates, revenue and profitability from the various products and services proposed as a physician banking package.

MD Financial Management | Gestion financière MD | Dec 1998 - Jun 2000

Financial Consultant

I managed over $30 million in assets for a client base exceeding 200 physicians and family members. Led a direct marketing campaign targeting dormant physicians in rural locations throughout the Ottawa Valley. The campaign successfully re-engaged dormant physicians leading to new fund sales of over $3 million.

MD Financial Management | Gestion financière MD | Jun 1997 - Dec 1998

Product Analyst

I drove the launch of the MD discount trade brokerage platform using a segmented direct mail campaign requiring Financial Consultants to make follow-up phone calls to promote the new platform. The campaign would lead to growth in assets under administration encouraging physicians to consolidate their securities with MD Financial. I led the launch of a new universal life insurance product, MD Life, to the physician market. I conceptualized the primary needs analysis points and sales concepts for the introduction of the new offering that would go on to enhance MD's risk management offering.

MD Financial Management | Gestion financière MD | Jan 1996 - Jun 1997


I executed accurate and timely equity, fixed income and mutual fund trades for physician clients and family members. I provided exceptional client service as part of a team effort to maintain a high client satisfaction rating with physician clients and their family members.
