After nearly four decades of association with founders, Jack and Garry Kinder, Ron’s experience with the Kinder sales management systems has been key to the success of many agency organizations under his leadership.
In 2017, Ron retired from his senior agency distribution role as Regional Vice President with Sun Life Financial (Canada). From 2007, Ron’s regional sales and distribution team in Western Canada consistently ranked #1 in all production and quality metrics across the Canadian business. Under Ron’s leadership, his Financial Center teams were awarded the coveted Excellence Cup as Sun Life’s top branch in 5 of those 10 years. In 2017 and 2018, his Asian Financial Center team in Calgary achieved the unique distinction as repeat winners of this prestigious award. In 2016, Ron was recognized with Sun Life’s CEO Award of Excellence.
Prior to his role in Canada, Ron enjoyed a successful senior management career in Southeast Asia. Beginning in 1996 and for the next eleven years, he led agency distribution and development teams with AIA in Singapore and Thailand, with Hong Leong Assurance in Malaysia, and finally, with Prudential (UK), in Vietnam and Hong Kong. As a Chief Master Trainer with the Kinder Management Academy, Ron was instrumental in the initial implementation of Professional Patterns of Management (PPM) in each of these companies. Since 2018, as Senior Consultant with Kinder Brothers, Ron continues to lead agency development initiatives in these countries, as well as in India and Indonesia.
Throughout his career, Ron has been a contributor to the life insurance industry. He served as a trainer and moderator of LIMRA’s Agency Management Training Course (AMTC) and was a member of LIMRA’s Research Agency Group (Canada) for several years. During his early years as a successful agent and agency leader, Ron held leadership roles in life industry organization chapters, with both Advocis and GAMA.
Kinder Brothers believes Ron’s depth of knowledge and experience in Asian markets will continue to have a significant impact in strengthening core competencies for the agency distribution teams of KBI’s client companies.
