Margo Lyons, Apollo Exchange
Head of broker distribution
With an ability to envision a better way for customers, brokers and underwriting teams to operate, and the tenacity to motivate people toward that vision, Margo Lyons is at the forefront of change in the insurance industry. Lyons is responsible for driving Apollo’s broker distribution strategy across Canada, working closely with teams across the organization to identify opportunities for growth and innovation. Outside of work, Lyons co-founded and is acting chair of the Young Insurance Professionals of BC.
“The ability to have a vision, create a strategy and then execute with rapid pace is rewarding and continues to drive me forward,” she says. “Now is the time for young professionals to step up. They are faced with the opportunity to make a huge impact on the industry, if they rise to the challenge. Conversely, with a hard market, the older generation of insurance experts must pivot their roles to educators and focus on knowledge transfer. I would like to see more organizations formalize knowledge transfer, mentorship and the passing of the torch to the new future.”
