TEC Chair Larry Hiles is no stranger to challenge and change – in fact, he refers to his 35 years of business successes as “marathons, not sprints.” Known for his positivity, this change agent has a reputation as a strong strategic thinker.
Larry started his career in the agriculture department at CIBC. Moving through the ranks in both small business and commercial banking, he culminated his banking career in 2002 as the bank’s senior representative in Saskatchewan and Director of Commercial Banking.
Throughout his career, Larry worked simultaneously on over a dozen boards. His most fulfilling experience as Board Chair and then Chair of the Audit & Finance Committee was to modernize Information Services Corporation of Saskatchewan’s 100-year-old paper land titles system. He took it from a $5 million-dollar loss to an over-sold IPO, converting the Crown Corporation into a publicly traded corporation.
His greatest strength around the table is his ability to listen intently while ensuring all parties are heard and participating. Larry’s strategic thinking techniques and adaptive strategy, coupled with achieving results through influence and coaching, has been instrumental in the success of his group members.
