Distinguished grad to share industry wisdom with Brock community

Brian Parsons (BAdmin ’90) manages the Canadian operations for one of the world’s largest risk management firms — and on Thursday he’ll return to his old stomping grounds to share industry insight with the next generation.

Parsons will be honoured at a special Nov. 15 reception as the recipient of the 2018 Goodman School of Business Distinguished Graduate Award. He was first named as this year’s award-winner at Brock’s Homecoming celebration in September.

Parsons, President and CEO Canada Region of Willis Towers Watson, has close to three decades of experience as a trusted insurance and risk management professional and has wide-ranging knowledge on people and risk issues.

Since graduating, he has maintained his connection to Brock and Goodman, including recently hosting a Goodman alumni roundtable at his office.

Goodman Dean Andrew Gaudes invites the Brock community to attend the reception and hear Parsons’ insights and experiences first-hand.

“We’re very proud to have Brian as a representative of our School,” he said. “He’s a great speaker, very engaging and has a lot to offer anyone who wants to hear his thoughts.”

The reception runs from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Goodman School of Business Atrium.

Anyone interested in attending the event can RSVP to Teighan McIntyre at x6685 or tmcintyre@brocku.ca
