Senior vice-president, operations & chief financial officer
Gail has over 25 years of financial leadership experience in the not-for-profit and for-profit sectors at both national and international organizations. Most recently, she worked for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation as the Senior Director of Finance and prior to that held senior financial and leadership roles at Nestle Waters North America and Pepsi-Cola Canada.
Her family hails from the Maritimes, where Gail was able to see firsthand the importance of water to sustain life of all kinds. As a result, she has had a lifelong interest in water and the health of our watersheds. She still remembers the first time, as a child, she became aware of the plight of an endangered species – it was the mighty right whale, which takes up residence in the Bay of Fundy in the summers.
Gail devotes much of her free time volunteering for her local community in Oakville, curling, walking, and reading. She lives with her husband David and cat Molly.
