Tony Grilli, Group Leader, CEO Global Network
Before joining CEO Global Network as a Group Leader, Tony enjoyed a very successful 30-year career with a Fortune 50 Company—United Technologies, specifically Otis Elevator Company. Tony has expertise in multi-national operations and a proven track record of driving initiatives to achieve key business metrics and corporate objectives. With a focus on customer service, sales, operations, finance, employee development, business development and strategic planning, Tony has demonstrated excellence in leadership throughout his career.
As President of Otis Canada Inc. from 2004 to 2018, Tony provided strategic direction and operational management to branches employing over 1000 people across Canada. During his tenure as President, Tony also served as a board member and was elected President and Chair of the National Elevator and Escalator Association—leading a national, multi-employer bargaining association in negotiations with the International Union of Elevator Constructors.
Tony began his management career with Otis in 1995 and progressed rapidly up the corporate ladder. After only one year as a Regional Sales Manager, Tony was promoted to Toronto General Manager in 1996 and then Regional General Manager, Central Canada in 1998. In 2001, Tony was appointed to the executive leadership team as Vice President of Business Development North America Operations, a position based in Connecticut—home of the Otis Elevator Co. world headquarters. While in this role, Tony was responsible for the acquisition of 40 companies across North America. Tony returned to Canada in 2004 when he was named President of Otis Canada Inc. and became a member of the Otis Americas Executive Board.
