After nearly 20 years at Rogers Communications Inc. as a journalist, editor and publisher — including 17 years at Benefits Canada — Landry joined Sun Life Financial in 2003 as assistant vice-president of marketing and plan member education for group retirement services.
During her 17-year tenure at Sun Life, she progressed to increasingly senior roles, including vice-president of national account sales, client relationships and marketing and chief marketing officer for Sun Life’s overall Canadian business.
In 2010, Landry was chosen to lead marketing for SLGI, the newly formed asset management business, where she hired the team and created the brand and creative strategy. In addition to her role as chief marking officer, she also led SLGI’s institutional business, including sales, where she helped grow the business to more than $12 billion.
Throughout her career, Landry has been passionate about advancing the influence of women in the financial industry and has led a national discussion on women and investing. She launched SLGI’s Women’s Investment Symposium and the Women’s Investment Community.
