Michel Laval is President & Managing Director at WINESTONE LAVAL.

WINESTONE LAVAL has the vision to be the best financial advisors to Canadians and the Credit Unions to which they belong as members.

Our mission is to help protect Credit Unions in their lending and insurance programs, to ensure that Canadians can afford the credit and insurance solutions to which they aspire, while having a viable alternative to traditional Banks and Insurance Companies, and to prudently grow wealth through real estate for hard-working and ethical Canadians.

The idea of providing the best customized solutions to strategic alliances that drive measurable results – with unparalleled professionalism, ethics and gratitude – is why WINESTONE LAVAL exists.

As a former executive, Michel observed that leaders tended to tell their team “what” and “how” things are to be done, but not often enough “why”.  Michel is passionate about helping people rediscover “why” they and their organizations do what they do, founded on the values of professionalism, ethics and gratitude.

Michel’s recent experience includes designing, developing and deploying mortgage financing, insurance and mergers & acquisitions programs within credit unions, residential, commercial and construction mortgage brokering, insurance agency sales management, group coaching and facilitation and strategic consulting.

Michel holds his undergraduate degree and his Master’s degree.  He is Mortgage Broker licensed and Life Insurance licensed.  Michel is an avid martial artist and the proud father of two boys.
