After a remarkable 39 year career in the insurance industry, Bob Taylor has retired from the day to day activities of Trisura Guarantee to be able to spend more time with family and friends. Fortunately for Trisura, Bob will remain involved with the company in his current capacity as Board Chairman.
After several years with Procter and Gamble, Bob joined the Guarantee Company of North America in 1975 and then went on to found Wellington Guarantee in 1989 which later became London Guarantee in 1995. London Guarantee grew into a prominent specialty lines insurer with Bob at the helm as CEO, until its sale to St Paul in 2002.
In 2005, Bob joined with John Garner and Mike George to form Trisura Guarantee, which opened its doors in 2006.
On June 17th, industry friends, colleagues and family gathered for a reception at the National Club in Toronto to honour Bob’s career and his contribution to the insurance industry. During the evening Bob’s brother and several friends and colleagues took to the podium to share a few personal stories and amusing anecdotes.
Bob has been a role model and mentor to many in the insurance business, and is living proof that decency, fairness and integrity are values that can help an organization succeed, thrive and grow.
Bob and his wife Fran plan to spend more time at their Ontario cottage in the summers and at their Florida condo in the winters.
