The LowestRates.ca Award for CEO of the Year



LYNN OLDFIELD joined AIG in 1991 as an underwriting manager and held a variety of progressive management positions before assuming the role of president in 2008 and CEO in 2010. “I am honoured – truly honoured,” Oldfield said. “To be named CEO in this fantastic industry is an honour in and of itself, but to be up against the level of competition and professionalism of the finalists – it’s truly recognition for a lot of work and commitment to the industry.”


“My job is to lead leaders … They believe in my vision, and it is so inspiring to see it come to life”


Oldfield prides herself on leading passionately from the front and believes that if employees are treated well, they will take care of clients and partners. “I am privileged and honoured to work with some of the most talented professionals in the business,” she said. “My job is to lead leaders, and they are leaders in their own right. They believe in my vision, and it is so inspiring to see it come to life.”


“It’s a privilege to present this award, because without strong leadership, this industry wouldn’t exist, and it wouldn’t be able to thrive,” said Justin Thouin, co-founder and CEO of award sponsor LowestRates.ca. “I think it’s phenomenal that Lynn won, and I hope we get to a time and a place where we don’t differentiate between a strong female leader and a strong male leader because leadership is gender-neutral, it’s age-neutral – it’s about leadership.”
