About Darryl Lim

Darryl’s first foray into the insurance industry was in 2007 when he obtained his Life License and worked for a major Life Insurance company. He diversified his experience by moving into the corporate and business worlds and spent nearly ten years in a variety of sales management roles, including one year working for a start-up and another year helping launch one. His background includes two years working as community relations manager for a local non-profit organization as well as nearly three years of full-time service in the Army as an Infantry Section Leader.     


He is actively involved in the Barrhaven and greater Ottawa communities. His contributions include participating in the Shoebox Project in support of women’s shelters, the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade where he played the role of The Grinch in 2019, and being the Education Coordinator for his Business Networking chapter. Darryl also dedicates a few hours each week to coach and mentor youth through his involvement in the local pipe band community. In the past, he has sat on the boards of the Victim Assistance Services of Ottawa-Carleton and the Ottawa Celtic Music & Dance Society. 


Darryl has also been awarded for his excellence. He won the Business Development Agent Forecaster award in November 2016; the Marketer of the Month in April 2018 for his efforts in sponsoring the Bikers Against Child Abuse rallies in the National Capital Region; and was most recently recognized as National Champion and Top Producer in 2019.


Outside of the insurance world, Darryl is an accomplished pipe band drummer and drum major. He has had the privilege of competing, adjudicating, performing and teaching across Asia, Europe, and North America. After serving 11 years with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Pipes & Drums, he continues to volunteer his time as Drum Major of the Ottawa Caledonian Pipes & Drums as well as Drumming Instructor for the Barrhaven Air Cadets’ Pipes & Drums program. He previously competed with the Ottawa Police Service Pipe Band as a tenor drummer, winning the Grade 2 North American Pipe Band Championships in 2013 with them. Darryl has also been the Master of Ceremonies for the Kingston Scottish Festival since 2013 and was the Master of Ceremonies for the pipe band competitions at the 2019 Glengarry Highland Games. In November 2019, Darryl was invited to lead the parade at the Kanata Remembrance Day ceremony as Drum Major for the Kanata Legion Branch’s Pipe Band.  


A proud resident of Ottawa since 2001 who is fluently bilingual in English and Mandarin, Darryl is an alumnus of both Carleton University and Griffith University (Australia) where he earned an Honours degree in Social Anthropology and an Advanced Diploma in Mass Communications respectively. In his spare time, he is an avid traveller and Scotch connoisseur.
