United Way Campaign Chair Embraces the Obligation of Leadership

April 7, 2011

MISSISSAUGA — Tim Bzowey is feeling good about his new role at United Way of Peel Region’s conference table. Previously a member of the campaign cabinet, Bzowey has agreed to take on overall responsibility for the 2011 campaign. “I embrace this opportunity as part of my obligation of leadership” says Bzowey. “Given our size as a region and the rate we’re growing, the need for the work of United Way and our community partners is more important than ever before.”

Bzowey is an executive at RBC Insurance with close to 20 years experience in banking, wealth management and insurance and close to ten years experience as a volunteer with United Way. Bzowey is currently the head of RBC’s Property and Casualty business in Canada and is accountable for the strategy, management and financial performance of one of Canada’s fastest growing providers of home, auto and travel insurance.

United Way of Peel Region board chair, Carl Oxholm, is delighted to have Tim at the helm of the campaign cabinet. “Tim has a long history with United Way in Peel and elsewhere. His enthusiasm, commitment and drive is contagious and can only mean bigger and better opportunities to broaden our message in Caledon, Brampton and Mississauga.”

Bzowey says he’s anxious to do so. “Some of our neighbours may not yet appreciate the impact even a modest commitment to United Way makes to help build more resilient communities. My job is to create a greater awareness and engage a much broader set of stakeholders to achieve our annual goal and to advocate on behalf of the services and support United Way of Peel Region represents.”
