Perry V. Dorgan, Senior Vice President, Innovation Lead

Position and Responsibilities

Perry is with Aon Hewitt in Edmonton. As a senior member and widely recognized innovator in the Health & Benefits consulting practice, he is responsible for the effective and strategic stewardship of current major client programs, and the development of new client partners in the public and education sectors.

Perry is a regular contributor to Benefits Canada.

Areas of Specialization

Perry's primary focus areas include the strategic management, design, marketing, implementation, and administration of group employee benefit programs. His particular approach focuses on the longer term strategic “vision” or “charter” of a plan sponsor’s benefit and health programs, the cost management strategies, and the development of integrated programs.

Perry consults to large public and private sector clients on both a project and strategic retainer basis. Perry’s client experience has recently centred on larger client and association plan sponsors in the education and public sectors, and retiree benefit plans.


A graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, Perry has been in the benefits and total rewards industry for more than 30 years, specializing in a broad range of professional human resource services. Prior to joining Aon Hewitt, Perry was the Regional Manager of Western Canada for a Canadian consulting firm, and a founding Principal of his own actuarial consulting firm.

Perry was honoured twice (in 2013 and 2014) with the Power Broker award by the respected insurance industry Risk & Insurance magazine, as one of the most effective and influential commercial insurance brokers/consultants in 24 industry categories in North America.

Perry was rated as one of the top Power Brokers in North America in the Education sector for 2013. Power Brokers were judged primarily on their creativity in solving risk-related problems during 2012, their demonstrated industry knowledge, and their high level of client service.

Perry is one of three (3) Canadians to receive this Power Broker award, and one of two 2013 Power Broker winners from Aon Hewitt in North America.
