During his 38 year career in the RCN, he was privileged to have commanded HMCS CHARLOTTETOWN, HMCS ALGONQUIN, the PACIFIC Fleet and the ATLANTIC fleet. He has extensive operational experience having deployed on numerous occasions globally.

Lloyd holds a Bachelor of Arts in Military and Strategic Studies from Royal Roads Military College (1985) and a Master of Arts in War Studies from the Royal Military College (2004). He is a graduate of both the Command and Staff Course and the National Security Studies Course at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto.
