across many initiatives over his 20 years at OMERS. He has a deep and unique understanding of the mandates of both the AC and SC Boards, making him the ideal leader for the SC at this critical next stage of its evolution.
Michael’s focus will be to help the Sponsors Corporation Board deliver on its key responsibilities related to plan design, contributions, strategy, stabilization reserves and valuation filing.
In addition to this new role, Michael will retain his position as President and Chief Operating Officer, Asia-Pacific for OMERS – continuing to oversee and direct OMERS operations, business relationships and the growth opportunities in that region.
Michael’s transition to leadership of the SC will begin immediately, with an effective date of April 15, allowing for a smooth transition ahead of Paul Harrietha’s retirement from the SC on April 30.
