    As Vice President & General Manager, Financial Services Sector, Joe’s responsibilities include strategy, execution, business results and client satisfaction for the full range of Global Technology Services offerings to IBM's Banking, Insurance and Financial Markets customers throughout North America. Previously, Joe was the Executive Vice President and Global Chief Information Officer at Manulife Financial. He has held a variety of sales, marketing and client relationship roles at IBM over the past 20 years in Canada and the U.S. Joe joined the RMHC Toronto Board of Directors in 2013.
    “After returning from five years in the U.S., I was searching for an opportunity where I could volunteer my time towards children, whether it is in their development or in assisting them with their challenges. When I was approached by Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto, I quickly jumped at the chance to join the Board. I was previously involved with RMH New York while living in the U.S., and saw it as a great way to give to an incredibly worthy cause.”
