Hugh Doyle, President and Key Connector
Hugh appreciates that high net worth individuals face unique challenges —and this brings them great opportunities. Using tax-exempt insurance as a core strategy, he’ll introduce effective ways to build and protect your wealth. Two things are crucial to his approach: making sure clients understand each potential solution, and keeping the value accumulated in a business or portfolio in the hands of the people who created it.
Originally from Ireland, Hugh is a graduate of the University College of Dublin where he studied Insurance and Financial Planning and received the Qualified Financial Advisor (QFA) designation. He built, owned and operated a thriving company that offered insurance plans and financial solutions for high net worth clients. Seven years later, Hugh immigrated to Canada. Within a year, with his ability and dedication to nurturing connections and introducing quality people to each other, he built extensive networks in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. He founded ProCorp to address the need he saw in the Canadian market to serve professionals.
