Welcome to the Accidental Executive. I’m a senior executive, currently accountable for marketing and communications, for a major North American financial services company. This blog is largely about leadership … one mistake at a time. I’ve made a lot of mistakes. And yet I have succeeded. At least by some measures. That’s why I call myself the “Accidental Executive”. I hope by sharing some of the stuff I have been through you can learn from that so your success comes less by accident and more on purpose.

You’ll normally find stuff in here about management, leadership and other executive type stuff. I will also write a bit about marketing and communications because I know a thing or two about that. Mostly by accident. And I will write about wellness for two reasons: 1) work-life balance is a huge issue for people working today and 2) I am passionate about mental health issues.

That’s pretty much it. Hope you enjoy what you find here.
