"People are really the only sustainable advantage that any organization has over time," says Westley V. Thompson, president of Sun Life Financial Inc. "Products come and go. Ideas can be copied. Companies that are truly sustainable are those that focus on Aplayer talent and have a diverse workforce. Diversity is critical to promote new perspectives, help companies keep their competitive edge and energy, and enhance the communities where we work and live." As president of Sun Life Financial U.S., Thompson is responsible for the company's U.S. insurance operations, which include a leading employee group insurance business, an expanding voluntary benefits business, and large in force blocks of individual life insurance. The company's Bermuda operations, which market to high net worth individuals internationally, also report to Thompson. "It's one thing to talk about the importance of talent," says Thompson, "it's another thing to back it up. When you think about the business world, one thing that doesn't change is talent. Talent is the only sustainable differentiator that any organization can have." After receiving a bachelor's degree from Brown University, Thompson began his career in the insurance industry at Aetna in 1979 in the Executive Management program. He rose through the ranks and then joined CIGNA in 1994, where he built an independent brokerage distribution capability for its individual insurance division. In 1988, Lincoln Financial Group acquired CIGNA's individual life insurance business, and Thompson played an active role in the integration efforts as well as in Lincoln's acquisition of Aetna's individual life insurance business in 1999. For the next ten years, Thompson held leadership roles at Lincoln Financial Group. He created the company's centralized wholesale distribution organization before becoming president of Employer Markets and then president of the Retirement Solutions division. Thompson joined Sun Life in 2008 and has been instrumental in renewing the strategic direction of SLF U.S. He has a strong track record of building insurance organizations and is focused on delivering value across all business lines for customers and shareholders. He has championed key initiatives focused on growing the business and positioning it for further success, including a re-focused product strategy, enhanced distribution and brand, and alignment of operations. "What attracted me to Sun Life was to build on the foundation that's been established," says Thompson.
