Sun Life’s Dean Connor and National Bank’s Louis Vachon are two of the top CEOs in Canada, says Canadian Business in its CEO of the Year issue.
CB named Connor top new CEO. When he got the job in 2012, he said the company would increase its earnings to $2 billion by 2015. Under his leadership, the company nearly hit that goal in 2013—two years ahead of schedule.
