Earl ORSER, Business Leader: 1928-2004
He started out as a charted accountant and soon found he was most interested in building companies, writes Sandra MARTIN. Blessed with curiosity, intelligence and an ability to motivate subordinates, he not only switched jobs but successfully hopscotched his way across entire business sectors
By Sandra MARTIN, Monday, January 3, 2005 - Page S6
A poor boy from the Danforth in Toronto, Earl ORSER was a company executive, a mentor, a proud Canadian and an energetic and effective volunteer.
He began as a chartered accountant with Clarkson Gordon and ended his career as president and chief executive officer of London Life Insurance Company, raising the firm's assets during his 20-year tenure from $2.9 billion to $16.4 billion. He's also known for his rocky three-year ride at the T. Eaton family in the mid-1970s where he shut down the money-losing catalogue operations in the family owned retail empire. Many observers believe that had he stayed at the helm, the company might have survived.
"I always thought of him as the consummate manager," said Jim ETHERINGTON, who was hired by Mr. ORSER at London Life in 1982 as a vice-president and worked with him until they both retired in the mid 1990s. Being a good manager for Mr. ORSER meant caring deeply about your people, getting to know them well, helping them and challenging them.
"He never argued against an idea from anybody," said Mr. ETHERINGTON, who now runs his own communications company. "He came to the table with lots of ideas himself, but he was almost intuitive in encouraging the ideas of others at the same time. That made him a very special kind of a manager."
"He was grounded in a strong set of values and they never wavered," said Carol STEPHENSON, dean of the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. "Earl was Earl. He was solid, he knew what he believed and he stuck to it no matter what he was doing."
Commenting on his acumen as a business leader, Ms. STEPHENSON pointed out that Mr. ORSER was unusual for his time in that he not only moved jobs, he changed sectors -- from accounting to retail to insurance. The reason he was so successful in so many different industries, she said, was because he was a great leader and that came from his curiosity, his intelligence and his "amazing" ability to motivate and empower people. "When I think back to my business career in the 1970s," she added, "the predominate style was command and control -- I'm the boss and you're not and I suspect Earl never had an ounce of that in him."
"He was a very good father," said Barbara ORSER, a business professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, and one of Mr. ORSER's four daughters. Saying her father was good at setting boundaries, she said her parents paid for one degree and one wedding and then you "were off the payroll."
Doing your best was a "well-understood point" in the ORSER family. So was speaking your mind. Mentioning that some business powerhouses can be "fairly patriarchal" at home, she said that her father had to fight for conversational space like everybody else. "We all had a voice and there was always a place for everyone at the table." she said. "There were lots of Friends who loved and cared for dad because they were part of the family as well."
Earl Herbert ORSER was born in Toronto, the year before the stock-market crash. His father was a telegraph operator and he had one sister. As a grade eight student at Earl Beattie School, Mr. ORSER was taught that "speed, neatness, politeness, industry and accuracy" were the keys to success in life and he passed on the message to his children and his grandchildren, all of whom could recite the list on command.
Mr. ORSER went to high school at Danforth Technical School and worked as a porter at Union Station at Christmas to help make ends meet. He was the first person in his family to attend university and was only able to register a the University of Toronto in 1946 because of a $200 bursary from the Leonard Foundation.
As with many smart boys, education was the route away from poverty. He never forgot the help he had been given and later in life he founded many scholarships and served actively as a fundraiser, benefactor and adviser to both the University of Toronto and University of Western Ontario. At Western, among many other activities, he chaired the Board of Governors and the Advisory Committee of the Ivey Business School
His father died when he was still in university and his mother moved to Edmonton. It was on a visit there that Mr. ORSER met a nurse from Moose Jaw named Marion QUEENIE. They corresponded after Mr. ORSER returned to Toronto, saw each other again that Christmas and married on August 4, 1951, a year after he graduated with a bachelor of commerce degree. He qualified as a chartered accountant in 1953, having done his articles with Clarkson Gordon, and was made a partner in the firm in 1958.
A lot of people would have settled down happily for the rest of their careers, but Mr. ORSER was interested in building companies.
His curriculum vitae is studded with high powered jobs at Molson Industries (apparently, his mother never let her teetotalling Friends know that her son was making his living in beer), Air Canada, Eaton's and London Life and directorships at places such as Spar Aerospace and Brascan.
All of these career moves meant that the entire family had to "embrace new challenges" by moving to new schools in different cities. That helped build a sense of family, said his daughter Barbara, because they had to rely on each other. She still remembers moving to Toronto when she was in grade 12, an uprooting that she wouldn't want to impose on her own daughter. But "with four kids we had a bit of a quorum, so we could support each other."
Mr. ORSER's most tumultuous job was as vice-president finance and then president and Chief Executive Officer of Eaton's from 1974-77. The famous Eaton catalogue was spewing money -- $17 million in 1974 with losses expected to more than double the next year. Mr. ORSER orchestrated its closing, but ran afoul of the Eaton family. He resigned in May, 1977, to the shock of many business observers, and was replaced by Frederik S. EATON.
Almost immediately Mr. ORSER was hired as a consultant by Brascan, who had acquired a large number of shares in London Life and wanted somebody they trusted to give them a report on the insurance business and London Life, then the largest insurance company in Canada, in particular. Mr. ORSER presented his report in 1978 and was then hired as executive vice-president and Chief Executive Officer, becoming president in 1980 and chairman of the board on his retirement from the company in 1989. In 1994 he began a three-year term as honorary chairman.
He was a meticulous planner and a detail man, according to Mt. ETHERINGTON. "We used to kid him about being a C.A. and he would smile and say 'You get to know the balance sheet and then you know where the problems are.' "
He changed London Life significantly from a largely family run firm to a public company called Trilon Financial Corporation, which then became the London Insurance Group, another publicly traded company which was eventually acquired by Great West. "He chuckled one day and said 'this is really neat,'" said Mr. ETHERINGTON. "I sold London Life for $125 million for Trilon and then I sold it again for $220 million to the London Insurance Group. That's a good deal."
He was interested in far more than the bottom line, however. People still talk about how he would take two or three days each Christmas to walk around the huge London Life offices visiting with employees, getting to know them and wishing them well for the holidays.
While Mr. ORSER was running London Life, his wife was quietly doing an undergraduate degree in theology, followed by a masters in divinity at University of Western Ontario. Her husband, who was then chair of the board at University of Western Ontario was able to grant his wife her degree at the graduation ceremony.
Mr. ORSER was almost as busy as a volunteer for the London Economic Development Corporation and his many other volunteer activities after he retired as when he was a full-time executive. And, as he had done, throughout his career, he continued to serve as a mentor. "He was a wonderful person in terms of being able to help you work through complex problems, not by preaching at you, but by making you think a problem through," says Ms. STEPHENSON who asked him for advice after she left the business world, a place where it is pretty clear what the bottom line is and who the clients are, to take on the more complex stakeholder issues of university administration. "He listened and then he helped me to discover the right answer by asking the right questions."
Four years ago, Mr. ORSER was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in the common bile duct. He underwent major surgery and appeared to have recovered. The doctors were amazed, according to his daughter who says he was a "miracle man" until the cancer returned and he received a terminal diagnosis about three weeks ago.
"There were no tears, no complaints. It was a matter of fact," said his daughter Barbara. "He was a man of faith and he had a calm and a peace about him, but he was very pragmatic and he always had his humour. The legacy is that his grandchildren have watched this," she said. "His last and his greatest gift to his family is to show us how you can die with dignity."
Earl ORSER was born on July 5, 1928 in Toronto. He died of cancer at home in London, Ontario, on December 26, 2004. He was 76. He is survived by his wife Marion and four daughters and their families. A memorial service will be held at First-St. Andrew's United Church in London, Ontario, on January 8, 2004.
