Branch Management Team


Michael Cooney
Branch Manager

Phone: 519-646-6807

Mike grew up on a farm in Eastern Ontario, as much as the farm life was not his calling, there is no doubt that farm work provided valuable tools later in life. Mike’s academic career led him to London, where he graduated with a BA in Kinesiology.  In 2012 Mike became the Assistant Branch Manager for the London office of BMO Nesbitt Burns, in addition to his Investment Advisor role.   In the fall of 2018 Mike transitioned into the Branch Manager role.  The expanded role further allowed him to focus on helping advisors grow their individual businesses plus grow the BMO Nesbitt Burns office in London.

Mike and his wife Jennifer, now call London home.  They are raising 3 children, Hannah, Sam and Gabe.  Outside of work, the whole family can be found on the ski hill every weekend in the winter and then the rest of the year catching up on what did not get done all winter!   Mike recently joined the Resource Planning and Audit Committee of St. Joseph’s Health Care London.
