Re: Search Committee for a Secretary of the Governing Council

Last month, we announced the retirement of our Secretary, Louis Charpentier, on December 31, 2015 and indicated that a Governing Council process would be undertaken to search for a successor. I am pleased to inform you that, at its meeting on October 29, 2015, the Governing Council approved the membership of the Search Committee with the following governors:

  • Ms Shirley Hoy, Lieutenant Governor-in-Council Appointee (Chair)
  • Ms. Catherine Riddell, Administrative Staff
  • Mr. Gary Goldberg, Alumni
  • Mr. Jeff Collins, Lieutenant Governor-in-Council Appointee
  • Mr. Alex Ivovic, Students
  • Professor Salvatore Spadafora, Teaching Staff

The President will serve ex officio. Ms Erin Jackson, Executive Director, Integrated HR, will serve as secretary to the committee.

Following a formal Request for Proposals and a rigorous selection process, we have engaged the firm of Caldwell Partners to assist the Search Committee in its work.

A call for nominations for potential candidates for Secretary will follow in due course.

Questions should be directed to the Secretary, Ms Erin Jackson, at or to Heather Ring, Partner, Caldwell Partners at
