Our leadership team

Meet the people who guide MD Financial Management’s commitment to Canada's physicians

 

Daniel Labonté

Daniel Labonté, MBA, CEC

President & CEO

With over 30 years in leadership roles across a variety of industries, I know there’s nothing more powerful than the customer experience and its alignment with a brand’s value. I believe success comes from a constant desire for development and opportunity. It’s a grassroots approach that focuses on initiative and co-creation and that fosters positive growth across a whole organization.

As the CEO of MD, I am incredibly excited to lead a company whose sole purpose is the financial well-being of Canadian physicians and their families. I believe strongly in the power of trust, in cultivating deep relationships, and in always striving to achieve more. My passion for MD’s mission to help Canada’s physicians is a commitment both professional and personal — my daughter is currently in her second year of medical school.

My past experience includes government, not-for-profit and business — established and start-up — in general management, marketing, technology and organizational development functions. I’ve worked hard to build a solid track record of successful strategic projects and initiatives and most recently successfully led a team of highly committed individuals focused on creating and delivering a first-class experience to clients.

I earned a bachelor of science degree and an MBA from the University of Ottawa. I am also a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at the Harvard Business School and hold a post-graduate certificate in executive coaching from Royal Roads University.

My greatest accomplishment is my family, and I enjoy travelling and time well spent with my two kids and wife of more than 30 years.

Client Value & Performance

When it comes to delivering value to clients, there’s nothing more important than taking meaningful care of individuals who spend their life’s work looking after the health and well-being of our Canadian population. We know that lasting connections are the real way to make a difference and it’s not only how we treat our clients, but also how we treat each other throughout the organization.

Over the last two decades, I’ve helped shape the MD you see today by spearheading important initiatives that help put women investors and leaders at the forefront. This ultimately elevates presence and builds confidence in ways that are invaluable. We work together with a common purpose and strive for excellence in everything that we do.

Looking back, I came to MD in 2006 serving in leadership positions in both Alberta and BC. I’ve been in the financial services industry for almost 30 years and have had both sales and leadership roles with wealth management firms.

I received a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Alberta in 1991 and my CFP designation in 1999. One of my greatest roles is acting as a coach and mentor with MD, where I lead the Women in Leadership program, as well as the Female Physician initiative.

Executive Vice President, Marketing & Client Engagement

For me, success comes from looking after the financial health and well-being of Canada’s physicians in a way that helps them stay focused on what’s most important to them, so they can live their best life.

As the newest member of the Executive Leadership Team at MD, I’m thrilled to help lead the organization with a common vision, meaning and purpose in everything we do. We work together to look after the needs of our clients and I’m excited to see what the future brings.

Throughout my career, I have held senior roles in different areas of Scotiabank, including Segment Marketing, Retail Branch Banking, Core Deposits & Payments, Branch Customer Experience and Global Marketing. I’ve always loved the opportunity to work closely with people and I strongly believe in the power of teamwork; that we come together to lift each other up and understand that we’re strong in our individuality and our collective.

I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a degree in History and then went on to get my HBA degree from the Richard Ivey School of Business. After almost two decades with Scotiabank, I consider myself fortunate to join the MD team and see many similarities in how we’re able to help each client feel secure about their finances so they can look to the future with confidence.

Executive Vice President, Enabling Services

I believe that the trusted relationships we develop — with both employees and clients — are what set MD apart. It begins with a decisive, client-centered strategy and execution plan that make our intentions clear. When I think about employee experience, I’m passionate about bringing all of the pieces together that help people feel valued, encouraged and well supported so we can act on those intentions. An inspiring climate, skillful leaders, frictionless technology and a deeply shared sense of purpose help us be our best for the clients we serve, and for each other. Add to that well-cultivated agility, resilience and an innovative mindset, and you have a business that’s ready to deliver whatever our clients need next.

In my 20+ year career, I established a strong foundation in technology and discovered a passion for developing high-performing individuals and teams. I have a bachelor of math from the University of Waterloo, and before coming to MD, I led technology and project teams at Nortel and the Project Management Office at Cactus Commerce, a Microsoft e-commerce professional services partner.
