Headstrong Chief Executive Officer saved Churchill Falls and rescued the Bank of Montreal
An emergency boss who took over after a plane crash wiped out everyone else, he brought the power project in on time before moving to a troubled Bank of Montreal, where he ruthlessly cleaned house
By Gordon PITTS, Page S8
Besides banking and family, William MULHOLLAND's grand passion was raising Hanoverian riding horses, which, according to one of his nine children, are "headstrong, able and smart." Those adjectives can just as easily be applied to her demanding father, said Caroline VAN NOSTRAND.
Those traits helped propel Mr. MULHOLLAND, a U.S.-born outsider, into one of Canada's most exciting and controversial management careers. He was the emergency boss who came in to save the massive Churchill Falls power project in Labrador. Then he turned around the Bank of Montreal, Canada's oldest bank, and as a financial-services innovator helped change the country's banking industry.
As an agent of change at the lacklustre Bank of Montreal, he fired executives who didn't measure up, winning a reputation as a tough, uncompromising boss. He tightened credit policies, led technological innovation and bought a Chicago bank in a far-sighted move that anticipated a North American market. He helped lead the Canadian commercial banks' march into investment banking with the purchase of brokerage Nesbitt Thomson.
Like many turnaround managers, he was accused of staying too long as Chief Executive Officer and losing touch with a rapidly evolving industry. Yet he reached down into the ranks to develop a new generation of Bank of Montreal leaders that included future Chief Executive Officers Matthew Barrett and Anthony Comper.
He was a complicated man who was seen as remote, autocratic, introverted and eccentric, but he was regarded as brilliant for some of his strategic moves. He could become deeply absorbed in detail and alarmingly inattentive to people's feelings. In describing him, Friends often fall back on that old cliché: "He did not suffer fools gladly."
"My father was not always easy," said Ms. VAN NOSTRAND, who lives in Toronto. "He had exacting standards and he upheld them for himself and expected others to do their best to get that same quality.
"But you can't mistake that for a lack of true caring and love and a huge commitment to family."
Still, for all his high standards and strategic thinking, Mr. MULHOLLAND's own career was almost haphazard, the product of tragic circumstances, timing and managerial agility.
He was born in Albany, New York the son of a civil servant who became New York's director of parks. Even at birth, he had a Canadian connection - his maternal great-grandmother was a French-Canadian from Trois-Rivières. He attended Christian Brothers Academy, a Catholic military school in Albany, where he became an expert rider, marksman, and fly fisherman -- interests he pursued throughout his life.
He graduated from high school, joined the U.S. Army during the Second World War and trained as a weapons instructor before being posted to the Philippines. After discharge, he entered Harvard College, got his B.A., then earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, while working in the summers as a park ranger.
He then parlayed a social connection with the financier Morgan family to join the investment banking house Morgan Stanley and pursue a career on Wall Street.
He married the daughter of a family friend, Nancy BOOTH, on June 22, 1957. Their rearing of nine children (four daughters and five sons) has been attributed by his wife to the consequences of a union between an Irish Catholic and a Free Methodist.
Mr. MULHOLLAND thrived in investment banking. One of his clients was Brinco, a Montreal firm of British-Canadian origins that was building the $1-billion Churchill Falls hydro project. He placed a $500-million bond issue for the company - at that time, a record sale of securities by a corporation.
But on November 11, 1969, Brinco's executive jet crashed, killing six members of its senior team, including the president and finance vice-president. The company was leaderless at a critical juncture in the Churchill Falls project. Mr. MULHOLLAND "was the last man standing who knew what it was all about," said Richard O'HAGAN, who was later his public-affairs specialist at Bank of Montreal.
In January, 1970, at the age of 43, he moved to Montreal to become Brinco's president and Chief Executive Officer. He also joined the board of the Bank of Montreal, which was the principal commercial banker for the Churchill Falls project. He brought the project in five months ahead of schedule and under budget.
Ron SOUTHERN, the Calgary-based head of Atco Ltd., was supplying Brinco with housing for its Churchill Falls work force. He was also negotiating to build housing factories in the Soviet Union and invited Soviet president Alexsei Kosygin to tour his facilities in Montreal. Mr. MULHOLLAND agreed to provide testimonials for the Atco products, and impressed Mr. SOUTHERN with his ability to hold his own in intense geopolitical discussions.
It was the beginning of a Friendship that was cemented in the mid-1970s, when Mr. SOUTHERN opened his Spruce Meadows equestrian centre near Calgary. Mr. MULHOLLAND attended the first major equestrian event, impressing Mr. SOUTHERN with his own riding skills. Each year, he would take a long country ride on the morning of the big event.
With Churchill Falls complete, Mr. MULHOLLAND was recruited to become the Bank of Montreal's president in 1975. He found another organization in crisis mode. "It took him about a year to get a grip on the bank, but he was a bulldog and he got it done," Mr. SOUTHERN said.
The new banker became immersed in Bank of Montreal's liquidity problems and cost-control challenges, as well as its struggles to move from manual systems to the computer age. After the incumbent Chief Executive Officer retired, he took the top job in January, 1979, adding the chairman's role 2½ years later.
He was involved in hiring Mr. O'HAGAN, who had served in the Prime Minister's Office under another eccentric legend, Pierre Trudeau. Mr. O'HAGAN recalled how his job interview with Mr. MULHOLLAND stretched to more than two hours, until he finally telephoned his next interview party to beg forbearance. Mr. O'HAGAN was fascinated by this brilliant, obsessive man and joined the Bank of Montreal team.
That extended interview was a harbinger of the MULHOLLAND style. He was notorious for unpredictably long meetings, forcing managers to queue up for hours, awaiting audiences that lasted long into the evening.
He was determined to weed out the perceived dead wood that had allowed the bank's problems to build. In his zeal to cleanse the ranks, he was accused of creating a demographic crisis in the bank. One unidentified manager told Report on Business magazine in 1989 that "an entire generation of management has been cremated."
"Those judgments were not made whimsically - they were made on the basis of performance," insisted Grant REUBER, the bank's president during the MULHOLLAND era. "I don't think he relished letting people go, but if they hadn't measured up and they hadn't recovered, they probably didn't survive."
Jeff CHISHOLM, a retired Bank of Montreal executive, said he never saw this side of his former boss - Mr. MULHOLLAND simply demanded honest answers from his managers. He said his positive traits never came to light because the Chief Executive Officer did not really care what critics thought of him.
Mr. MULHOLLAND also pulled off a deal that transformed the bank: the 1984 purchase of Harris Bank, a U.S. Midwest regional powerhouse based in Chicago. Some critics have contended that once the deal was done, the bank didn't really capitalize on its new U.S. platform - but at minimum, Mr. MULHOLLAND created the potential platform.
"He had a vision about what was going to happen to the North American economy and to financial services within North America," said Mr. Chisholm, a former Harris Bank executive who joined Bank of Montreal.
Later, Mr. MULHOLLAND moved quickly on the deregulation of Canada's financial industry by acquiring Nesbitt Thomson, the foundation of today's Bank of Montreal Nesbitt Burns Inc., the bank's investment subsidiary.
Whether he stayed too long is much debated; it's a common problem with strong leaders in politics and business. But Mr. MULHOLLAND's saving grace was to leave the bank in good hands.
Mr. Barrett, his successor, was a charming people person who provided a sharp contrast with his more aloof predecessor. Mr. MULHOLLAND "knew he was not Mr. Popularity with everybody," Mr. O'HAGAN said. "He recognized there would be a contrast and that Barrett's personal style would register differently. I think that was part of the reason he chose him."
Mr. Barrett, now retired from banking, said in an e-mail message that "Bank of Montreal shareholders and employees owe a debt of gratitude to Bill for stepping into the bank at a difficult time in its history. Those that succeeded him benefited greatly from his legacy.
"He once joked that he built the Stradivarius that others played beautifully. I certainly agree with that."
After he retired in 1990, Mr. MULHOLLAND had time to focus on family, horses and his beloved Windswept Farm near Georgetown, west of Toronto. He worked to develop the Hanoverian breed in Canada.
But in recent years, Parkinson's disease took its toll. At the MULHOLLANDs' 50th wedding anniversary party in early July, Friends felt he almost willed himself to attend. It wasn't long afterward that he was admitted to hospital.
William MULHOLLAND was born in Albany, New York on June 16, 1926. He died of complications from Parkinson's disease and other medical problems at his home near Georgetown, Ontario, on September 8, 2007. He was 81. He is survived by his wife Nancy, nine children and 11 grandchildren.

With her life partner, Edith enjoyed traveling to the far corners of the world. Widowed in 1977, she moved to Toronto where she lived for almost thirty years. Due to failing health, Edith relocated to Calgary to be with her family in October 2006. Always willing to lend a sympathetic ear, she leaves behind many Friends of all ages who recognized and appreciated her wisdom, intelligence, compassion and lady-like elegance. Our mother frequently said that 'it was not by words that I would wish my life distinguished but rather by deeds done'. In this spirit she volunteered with the Royal Ontario Museum and with the Canadian Blood Services, the latter until the age of 87 years.

Founder of Brazilian Ball dies of cancer
By Unnati GANDHI, Page A6
Anna Maria DE SOUZA, known best as founder, president and Chief Executive Officer of the glittery Brazilian Carnival Ball, died at Princess Margaret Hospital yesterday afternoon after a battle with cancer. She took the secret of her closely guarded age with her - something she once told The Globe and Mail that even her husband did not know. Friends estimate she was in her mid-60s.
Ms. DE SOUZA, who counts Conrad Black among her ex-beaus, was born Anna Maria Marcolini GUIDI in Brazil, the granddaughter of an Italian immigrant.
She met a Canadian bulk-foods importer and, in 1965, she moved to Canada, where she threw a Brazilian ball in a church basement for herself and fellow Brazilians.
The event has since become one of Canada's most prestigious fundraisers, amassing a "crème de la crème" guest list, her friend, Norma Meneguzzi SPALL, said yesterday. Visitation will be held at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. A funeral mass will be held at Holy Rosary Church on Friday at 9: 30 a.m.

Socialite's Brazilian Carnival Ball raised millions for Toronto charities
Using organizational skills and strategy worthy of a Bay Street Chief Executive Officer, she transformed a church-basement affair into the social event of the season, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Page S11
Italian and Brazilian in ancestry, Anna Maria DE SOUZA heated up the staid fundraising climate in Toronto with the Brazilian Carnival Ball, probably the most significant philanthropic gala on the Canadian social calendar. A warm-blooded, energetic outsider, she had the entrepreneurial zeal, organizing skills and shrewd ambition of a self-made Chief Executive Officer. But, instead of starting a company or a launching a hedge fund, she camouflaged those skills under the patina of a society hostess. Using old-fashioned influence, rather than naked power, she forged alliances with charitable foundations in campaigns that raised their profiles, her status, and close to $45-million for Toronto hospitals, universities and arts and culture organizations over the past 40 years.
For all her flamboyance, Ms. DE SOUZA was intensely private. Nobody knew her real age - not even her husband Ivan, as she loved to boast. "I've known her for 35 years and it never occurred to me to wonder," said her friend Catherine NUGENT. " She was one of those people who was ageless."
Along with Ms. DE SOUZA's success came complaints about her management style. She seemed unapologetic to criticisms that she was territorial and a micro-manager who autocratically chose the event's annual beneficiary. "This is big business, and the organization requires that we have a good board to sell the ball, a recipient who will pay for our computers, our secretarial staff," she told Maclean's last year. "This work requires a huge infrastructure." And even knowing how much work was involved, if Ms. DE SOUZA asked if you wanted to be the beneficiary of the Brazilian Carnival Ball, "there was absolutely no reason to say no," said Paul ALOFS, president of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation "because it is such a massive fundraising and awareness-generating opportunity for a not-for-profit."
Although the ball was her biggest activity, it wasn't her only one. She also volunteered on the women's committee of the Canadian Opera Company and was the curator of the Henry Birks Antique Collection of Silver in the late 1970s. A passionate gardener and a keen tennis player, she loved to entertain and to cook for her guests. "She was the most generous, vivacious person I know," said Ms. NUGENT. " She loved to introduce people to each other and to grow her circle of Friends, but she was also shy."
Anna Maria DE SOUZA, the daughter of Amadeu GUIDI and his wife Honorica (née MARCOLLINI,) was born in Sao Sebastiao de Parasio in the mountainous state of Minas Geras in the interior of Brazil. She grew up in a family of four brothers and one sister. Her grandfather on her mother's side had immigrated from Genoa, Italy, as a teenager and found a job as a construction worker building homes for plantation workers, according to Rosemary Sexton in The Glitter Girls, Charity and Vanity: Chronicles of an Age of Excess.
When money was scarce, her grandfather was paid in land. Eventually he accumulated enough acreage to start his own plantation and enough wealth to take his family back to Genoa on a trip. There, he bought a villa. For the rest of his life he spent half the year in Italy and the other in Brazil. When his daughter, Honorica, married, Mr. MARCOLLINI handed over control of his Brazilian plantation to her new husband, Amadeu. That's where his granddaughter, Anna Maria, grew up, in what she later compared to paradise. It was a time in which life "was gracious and slow and everything was looked after." She was educated at the Collegio Paula Frassinette in Brazil where she earned a teaching degree, and then attended the Escola Técnica de Comercio C.A.
At 18, she married William John GRIFFITHS, an English mining engineer for Wimpey Construction, a British firm that had a contract to build a dam in Brazil. Anna Maria went into labour with their first child on Good Friday, a holiday in Brazil. Her doctor was away, the birth was arduous and afterward Anna Maria was unable to bear more children. The baby, a daughter, lived for only 23 days. To compound the tragedy, her husband died in a work-related accident 10 months later.
Widowed, and still in her teens, Anna Maria went to live with her grandmother in Italy where she attended finishing school. Afterward, sailing back to Brazil on a cruise ship, she met a Brazilian plantation owner who urged her to get involved in the coffee exporting business. As chance would have it, at a party in Rio de Janeiro on New Year's Eve in 1964, Anna Maria met a man named John MARSTON, who said he imported bulk foods into Canada. If she had products to sell, he was interested in seeing them.
With an insouciant entrepreneurship, she gathered some samples from the family coffee plantation and set out for Canada, arriving in Toronto in gloomiest February, 1965. She looked up Mr. MARSTON and married him three months later in a Protestant ceremony, which her mother, a Catholic, boycotted. "I fell in love with Toronto and the only thing I could do to stay was to get married," she once confided. By 1974, the MARSTONs had divorced, Anna Maria complaining later that her husband was a workaholic who had little interest in married life.
Anna Maria had long since found ways to make her own life more interesting. Homesickness propelled her "to kill the longing" by organizing her first Brazilian Ball in 1966, the winter after she arrived in Canada, in a church basement at Dundas and Grace Streets, a largely Portuguese area of Toronto. Tickets cost $5, the food for the 50 guests was prepared by Anna Maria and her Friends, and the aim was merely to cover costs and bring a little Mardi Gras colour to the dreary Toronto winter. The ball quickly became a tradition.
By the early 1970s, the ball, which had quickly moved above ground to the Sutton Place Hotel and then the Sheraton Centre, was making a small profit, with the proceeds going to a Brazilian orphanage. That tradition has continued with five per cent of the annual profits benefiting leper colonies, old age homes and other causes in or around her hometown. When Toronto charities began asking if they could reap the ball's annual largesse, Anna Maria astutely decided to bestow the fundraising benefits on a different cause every time, thereby hooking into a fresh network and set of volunteers annually.
Krystyne GRIFFIN attended her first Brazilian Ball in 1977, the year she left Paris, married businessman and Griffin Poetry Prize founder and benefactor Scott GRIFFIN, and moved to Toronto. "Everybody told me this was the party to go to because it showed that Toronto could be fun." They were correct. "A guy in drag dressed like Queen Alexandra walked up and smacked Scott right on the lips. That was my introduction to Anna Maria's parties," said Ms. GRIFFIN. "I liked her without knowing her well."
The ball celebrated its 14th anniversary in 1980 at the Four Seasons Hotel on Avenue Road in Toronto and netted $50,000. That's where it stayed until 1988, when it moved to the yawning depths of the Metro Toronto Convention Hotel, the only venue that could accommodate crowds upward of 1,000.
Disaffected by her globe-trotting, work-obsessed husband, Anna Maria met the late Montagu Black at the Brazilian Carnival Ball in the early 1970s, and he thought she should meet his younger brother, Conrad, who was then plying his way as an aspiring tycoon and researching his biography of Quebec premier Maurice Duplessis. Eventually, lawyer Igor Kaplan introduced them and they dated for about two years after her 1974 divorce. "She was a delightful, refreshing, and enterprising person, and was a very popular and respected person in a community where she started as a stranger and, at first, hardly spoke the language," Conrad Black wrote in an e-mail message yesterday. "I saw her a lot at the time my parents died, 10 days apart, in 1976, and she could not have been more supportive."
Anna Maria's lasting love, however, was businessman Ivan DE SOUZA. Introduced by Marvelle KOFFLER, wife of Murray KOFFLER of Shoppers Drug Mart, they had much in common, both being Portuguese-speaking and Catholic. They were married on December 22, 1982, and were devoted to each other.
More than the venue of the ball changed over the years. As it became more lavish and raised more money (much of it matched by government programs with costs underwritten by corporate sponsors), so, too, did the entertainment. Instead of handmade decorations on a carnival theme, Ms. DE SOUZA began importing carnival dancers from Brazil. That meant switching the date from Mardi Gras (the carnival on the eve of Lent, the 40-day period of penance preceding Easter in the Catholic calendar) to April or May so that the dancers could travel to Toronto in their off-season.
At the 40th anniversary of the ball in 2006, the $2-million in net proceeds went to York University's Accolade Project and the 1,600 guests were entertained by a 30-minute samba parade from the Rio Carnival - including 50 dancers in feathered, beaded and bejewelled costumes processing on foot or on wooden horses - to the beat of the batucada rhythm supplied by the Cocktail Brazil Band.
Last November, Ms. DE SOUZA was diagnosed with rampaging cancer and underwent rigorous treatment that included chemotherapy at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto. She looked frail, but valiant, at the 2007 ball, which was held April 21 and raised $2.6-million net for the Arthritis and Autoimmunity Research Centre in Toronto. "She and the ball were a brand, and for a very small organization like us, she had a tremendous impact. She did a great job," said Gerri Grant, executive director of the AARC.
About a month ago, Ms. DE SOUZA went back into hospital for more treatment, but was well enough to decide that oncology nursing, through the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, should be the focus and the beneficiary of the 2008 Brazilian ball - the first one that will occur without her dominant presence.
Anna Maria DE SOUZA was born in Brazil, probably in 1941. She died in Toronto on September 18, 2007. She was in her mid-60s. She is survived by her third husband, Ivan DE SOUZA, her step-son John, and her extended family.
