  • Don Theriault

    If three words could describe Don, they would be family, insurance, and love - that is, the love of connecting with people.

    Don entered the health insurance market in 1970 under the guidance of London Life with whom he worked with until 1980. Always possessing the entrepreneurial bug and passion to connect, Don ventured out on his own and created Theriault Financial Inc., working with many Nova Scotia and New Brunswick business owners to provide affordable group benefits solutions for their employees.

    Aside from Don’s time spent in the business, he has given many years to his community by serving on numerous boards including two terms with the Halifax Chamber of Commerce. He has volunteered his time with Mount Saint Vincent Alumnae events, is a past President of two of HRM’s Kiwanis Clubs, and is a past Lieutenant Governor with Kiwanis International.

    In addition to Don’s obvious enthusiasm for business and his community, he shares the same passion for his family. When his children were growing up, Don spent many hours volunteering in hockey roles, on and off the ice, and in his church’s catechetics program. Now with seven grandchildren, Don (Papa) and Lynne (Grammie Lynne), love to travel, share family times and spend weekends at the family cottage. A great day to Don includes spending time with his grandchildren.

    Jeff Theriault

    Jeff joined Theriault Financial in 2001 after studying biology and chemistry at Mount St. Vincent University.

    With a passion for healthcare and client service, the group benefits business was a perfect fit. Jeff’s dedication and knowledge ensure that all of his clients receive the specialized approach needed for a healthy workforce.

    Jeff’s roots run deep in the communities of Dartmouth and Halifax where he commits a great deal of time working with various charitable organizations such as the Mental Health Foundation, the Red Cross, and the Chamber of Commerce.

    Whenever possible, he loves travelling and attending concerts and sporting events with his fiancé Beth. And while he enjoys all of the above, there’s nothing more he’d rather do than cook Kraft Dinner, read bedtime stories and build LEGO with his boys Nate and Levi.

    Lynne Theriault

    Lynne joined the family business in 2006 after a long university management career. As senior manager at TFI, her role takes her into all levels and areas of the firm.

    In her spare time, Lynne enjoys time with Don and their three children and seven grandchildren. Life is busy with all of their activities and Lynne especially enjoys her friends, reading, and gardening both at home and at the cottage. Lynne shares her sense of humour with everyone she encounters.
