On June 21, Queen’s Board of Trustees announced the appointment of three new members whose three-year terms began June 1. 

The first new member, Dr. Marie Delorme, MBA ’00, is the CEO of the Imagination 

Group of Companies and Chair of organizations such as the River Cree Enterprise Board and the National Indigenous Economic Development Board, among others. 

Second, David Sharpe, Law ’95 Chief Executive Officer of Bridging Finance Inc., also began his term this month. Sharpe is currently the Vice-Chair of the Dean’s Council for the Queen’s Faculty of Law and Chief Emeritus of First Nations University of Canada.

John Stackhouse, Com ’85, is the third newly appointed member. Stackhouse, formerly the editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail, and editor of the Globe’s Report on Business, is currently the Senior Vice-President in the Office of the CEO at the Royal Bank of Canada. He’s also a Senior Fellow at the C.D Howe Institute and the Munk School of Global Affairs.

The Queen’s Board of Trustees is comprised of 25 members and meets four times a year. It is primarily responsible for governing finances at the University. 

The recent appointment of members is part of the University’s efforts to diversify membership of the Board of Trustees. 

Don Raymond, Chair of the Board of Trustees, told The Gazette, “Board diversity is an important step toward fostering a culture that encourages the inclusion of a broad range of views in the governance of the university.” 

“Having board members with the necessary mix of skills and who can provide multiple perspectives results in better decisions and strong oversight,” he added.
