Darryl Rawlings, CEO


“Each day, Darryl Rawlings leads more than 500 pet-loving professionals in the U.S. and Canada to one shared purpose and a singular goal: to help the pets we love receive the best veterinary care. It’s the passion driving everything we do, enabling dogs and cats to lead long, healthy and happy lives.

Rawlings has established himself as a leader in medical insurance for cats and dogs. As founder and chief executive officer of Trupanion and founder and member of NAPHIA, Rawlings is setting high standards for a growing industry, expanding public awareness of medical insurance for cats and dogs, and expanding the market across North America.

His passion for pet health runs deep. When he was 14, his family dog needed surgery that could have lengthened her life for another 12 years. The cost was beyond his parents’ means and they left the veterinary hospital without her. He vowed that someday pets would have even better medical insurance than people do. And Trupanion has fulfilled that promise with medical insurance for cats and dogs that is remarkably better than most human health insurance.

Trupanion covered its first pet in Canada in 2000 and expanded to the United States in 2008. Since expanding to the U.S., Trupanion has established itself as a market leader and now provides medical insurance for cats and dogs in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. In July 2014, Darryl took this a step further, and lead the company through an IPO. Trupanion is publicly traded on NASDAQ.

Under his leadership, the company continues to experience consistent growth, with revenue growth in excess of 25% in each of the past 39 quarters. Trupanion now covers more than 350,000 pets.

Rawlings is a graduate of the British Columbia Institute of Technology. His family includes his wife Caroline, two sons Sam and Bennett, bulldogs Tristen and Priscilla, cat Halle and bird Q.”

Ian Henry, Head of Territory Partners


Ian Henry is the VP of Regional Directors for Trupanion. He spends his days recruiting, training, and supporting regional directors nationally. However, his Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Brody, wants nothing more than to make a break for it and run laps around the office with Ian futilely chasing behind.

Margi Tooth, Chief Revenue Officer


Margi Tooth oversees the lead generating and sales conversion teams for Trupanion. Prior to this, Margi held the positions of Chief Marketing Officer, VP of Digital Marketing and Head of Marketing.

Margi moved to Seattle to join the Trupanion team; prior to which she worked for over 7 years in the pet insurance space in the UK. Her experience is deep‐rooted in brand, customer and digital marketing. With many years of experience with the World’s largest pet insurance provider, Margi brings with her a wealth of knowledge which will help Trupanion grow as the best in class.

Margi lives in Seattle with her husband, three young sons, and a puppy, Gertie. Having grown up on a farm and spent hours dreaming of becoming a vet, she channels her animal loving nature in other ways. Her deep rooted love of pets means she can’t help evangelize the importance of medical insurance for the life of the pet to pretty much anyone she meets!

Tim Graff, President of APIC


How long have you worked at Trupanion?

A little over a year in this role, but I was on the board from 2007 to 2011 prior to that.

Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

Do you bring your pets to work?

Sure why not? It is great having your dog with you every day

Do you have a favorite story you want to share about your pet(s)?

Jake is a trail hiking champion he can go forever with his tongue hanging out and a smile all over his face for hours at a time. He likes to pretend he is tough and macho but he never goes too far ahead of me

If I could go anywhere in the world it would be:

Phuket, Thailand - Can't wait to get back there

What I like about working at Trupanion:

I love the dynamic nature of our company - everything is moving at 150 mph, I like the wide diversity of characters we have and the fact that everyone is encouraged to be themselves. I also like the common bond we all share - we are all pet lovers.
