Douglas McRae was born in Montreal where he has lived for most of his life with brief intervals in Quebec City, New York and London. Educated at McGill University, his chosen career, after some varied experience, is that of a marine insurance underwriter for a multi-national insurance company. That career has provided abundant opportunity for travel to England, France, Germany, Switzerland, the United States and throughout Canada.
Travel and golf are his principal interests outside of the business world, the one providing the opportunity for the other. When the Canadian winter sets in, Florida and California offer an abundance of attractive venues with Mexico and the Caribbean also within easy reach of Montreal. Retirement is on the horizon and promises to open further opportunities to indulge these passions which are fortunately equally shared by his wife and son.
