Speaker Daryl Johnston
Managing Director, Technology Banking, Canada
Silicon Valley Bank
Daryl and his team are responsible for delivering SVB’s core loan products as well as insights, connections and solutions that help Canada’s innovation-sector companies to scale from coast-to-coast. With more than 25 years of deep finance experience and technology knowledge, Daryl has developed a strong reputation as a “power networker”; he has a proven ability to understand a client’s business, identify opportunities and provide valuable guidance and services that achieve results.
As a trusted advisor to founders and C-suite executives, Daryl understands that game-changing businesses have two key requirements beyond customers: people and financing (i.e., talent and growth capital). Daryl joined SVB — a bank sharply focused on serving the technology sector — for the unique opportunity to help entrepreneurs successfully solve one of these key requirements.
Prior to joining SVB, Daryl was the head of business development for Deloitte’s national Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) industry group and a member of Deloitte’s TMT executive team in Canada.
