TEC CEO Chair
Hamilton/ Burlington / Toronto, ON
Great leaders help people discover and grow their talents and abilities to achieve success beyond what they thought possible. I have seen how much more can be accomplished when leaders lead by lifting others.
Ed McClelland believes that discovering and developing your talents is a lifelong pursuit. He helps his members identify and develop their leadership talents and abilities to achieve their personal and professional goals. He does this by cultivating high levels of trust and openness in his groups to create a safe, trusting yet challenging environment.
With 30+ years leading corporations, Ed is a skilled senior executive. He honed his passion for business and talent for finance working for Borg Warner Finance and then CIBC Finance. He rose in both organizations to the level of Senior Vice President and President. A highlight of his career was the launch of Borg Warner’s Australian division. He successfully grew the organization and sold it five years later for $200 million.
For over 15 years, Ed has helped more than 125 members as a TEC Chair. He is always seeking business leaders who are deeply committed to their growth and equally willing to contribute to the growth of others.
