Vancouver, British Columbia and Regina, Saskatchewan (April 3, 2019) We are pleased to announce that Nola Joorisity has joined Leith Wheeler as an External Advisor to our Board of Directors.

Ms. Joorisity brings significant experience in the profit and non-profit sectors to the firm, having led the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Saskatchewan as CEO for nearly 20 years before joining Greystone Managed Investments as CFO and Managing Director for five more. Ms. Joorisity is currently Associate Vice President (Finance) for the University of Regina.

“Our firm is unique in the way we utilize external advisors to serve as a sounding board, and to aid in the evaluation of our senior leadership team,” said Jim Gilliland, Leith Wheeler President and Chief Executive Officer. “Nola brings a wealth of experience and best practices with respect to building culture and highly effective teams. We are very excited we were able to attract such a high-caliber individual to the firm.”

Recruited as the first Board Chair of the CPA Western School of Business, Ms. Joorisity currently serves as Vice Chair of SaskEnergy and Chair of the Public Employees Pension Board, Canada’s largest employer-sponsored defined contribution plan with nearly $10 billion in assets and 65,000 members.
