Ian Troop
Chief Executive Officer
TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee


Ian Troop is the chief executive officer of TO2015, the Organizing Committee charged with putting on the Pan/Parapan American Games. Named one of the Top CEOs of the Future by the Financial Post, Troop will be leading the charge to create Canada’s largest ever, world-class sport competition and cultural festival in Toronto during the summer of 2015.

To execute such a massive endeavour on behalf of three levels of government, he will draw upon his worldwide business experience as well as his passion for community growth and sport.

Troop spent 20 years running businesses in Mexico, Europe and North America at Procter & Gamble where he learned a thing or two about planning and building brands.

Motivated by challenge and the opportunity to make a difference, he left Canada for Mexico to work for P&G at a time when Mexico’s economy was coming out of its financial crisis. As a young general manager in Mexico and subsequently in Poland, Troop thrived on the chance to be part of a team that would make P&G’s operation better and create an economic legacy.

He later moved to ConAgra Foods where he was president of their International Division, building it into a $1.5 billion business, and then moved onto OMERS where he managed a $42 billion pension fund.

Outside of the business realm, he has been involved at the grassroots levels of sport working to develop programs for hockey and basketball in Warsaw, Cincinnati and Toronto, including leading the development of a fully community-funded athletic facility in his hometown of Georgetown, Ontario. He has also served on numerous boards in Mexico, the Philippines and Canada, including the National Hockey League Players’ Association.

An accomplished sportsman, Troop was an all-star varsity football player inducted into the Laurier Hall of Fame (1978) and drafted by the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger Cats in 1981. He was also named Wilfrid Laurier University’s 2009 Alumni of the Year.
