Susan Creasy CLU, B.P.H.E., B. Ed. Chartered Life Underwriter

A graduate of Queen’s University, Susan Creasy joined the insurance industry in 1980. Today she owns Susan Creasy Financial Inc., a financial planning firm located in Kingston, Ontario.

Throughout her career, Sue has been held in high regard by her peers in the life insurance industry. In 1997, she was the first Canadian to be recognized by the Life & Health Insurance Foundation for Education for her outstanding professionalism and concern for her clients’ financial security. For 23 consecutive years, she has been a member of the industry’s Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) and is now a Qualifying and Life Member. Since 2005 she has been named to the MDRT’s “Top of the Table,” a milestone achieved by only 4% of its membership worldwide. Sue has also completed a term as chair of the board of directors of the MDRT Canadian Charitable Foundation, an organization funded with generous financial gifts from insurance professionals.

Much of Sue’s success can be attributed to her entrepreneurial spirit. Innovative, creative and open to new ideas, she has excellent relationship-building skills. Clients choose to do business with Sue primarily because of the level of trust she develops with them, and that trust is reflected in the two and three generations of families in her client base.

Actively involved in the Kingston community, Sue is a founding member of the Kingston Women’s Network and is a strong supporter of the community at large, giving generous amounts of her time to a variety of causes and charitable efforts. In 1999, she received the Cataraqui Rotary Club’s Paul Harris Award and was named The Kingston Whig-Standard’s “Women in Business Cover Award Winner.” She has served as chair of the CNIB Kingston District Endowment Committee and was president of the Frontenac Children’s Aid Society for two years. As chair of the highly successful Rose of Hope Charity Golf Tournament in 2004 to 2010, she helped raise more than $870,000 for equipment and the expansion of the chemotherapy suite at the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario, and for Breast Cancer Action Kingston. Susan is a past member of the board of directors at Kingston General Hospital.

Sue is President of the board of directors of the Limestone Learning Foundation, a charitable foundation that has funded hundreds of projects at schools in the Limestone District School Board. In the spring of 2001, the Limestone District School Board presented her with its Outstanding Service Award. Sue’s interest in education extends from time in the classroom; 1992 to 2008 she taught business programs to students at Perth Road Public School.

An active member of the Cataraqui Golf and Country Club, Sue and her husband Tim, make their home near Kingston, Ontario. Susan's two children Rebecca and Jack have established themselves as university educated and sociably responsible.
