Mr. Robert Rosenblat, C.Dir.
Director, Teachers Life
Robert Rosenblat is an actuary by profession and has practised in both the insurance company sector and the pension/benefits consulting fields for some 36 years. During the 22+ years ending in late 2010, he was employed by Aon Consulting and one of its Canadian predecessor firms, Martineau Provencher (MP).
Following Mr. Rosenblat’s hiring in 1988 at MP, he worked to earn a solid reputation as a leading actuary and consultant in the retirement field and became a full partner in 1994.
This expertise, coupled with Mr. Rosenblat’s prior background in life insurance (during 10+ years with Manulife and 3 years with MetLife) enabled him to become the lead consultant to several Canadian fraternal benefit societies.
Following Aon's acquisition of MP, Mr. Rosenblat continued as a Senior Vice President and, in 2001, he became the Toronto office retirement practice leader and one of three individuals that formed the country's national retirement practice development council.
In 2004/2005, he ceded much of his internal management functions and redirected his focus internally with clients and with deeper mentorship of professional staff.
From 2007 through 2009, Mr. Rosenblat was the key spokesperson for Aon responding to the Ontario government's task force led by Harry Arthurs for the purpose of revising and amending the Pension Benefits Act in Ontario.
Within a month of Mr. Rosenblat’s departure from Aon, he was approached informally by a former client - Teachers Life - to see if he would be interested in joining their board. The experience to date has been very positive. Operating at a holistic level with the potpourri of personalities at hand is quite stimulating.
Similarly, Mr. Rosenblat’s 20+ years of volunteer work with the CNIB, most recently chairing their pension and investment subcommittee, has given him insights into managing and steering volunteers to achieve committee goals while acting as a responsible fiduciary.
