Jim Leech to Become New Chancellor of Queen’s University in Ontario
Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP) has announced via Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada that Jim Leech, President and CEO of the OTPP, has been named the University’s newest chancellor.
His term will begin on Jul 1, 2014, and it will last three years. The decision was reached on October 18, months after Leech’s predecessor, David Dodge, announced he would not be seeking a third term.
OTPP announced in May of this year that Leech would be leaving the large pension investor effective January 1.
According to annual reports filed by the OTPP, Mr. Leech has been responsible for taking the pension fund from 89% funded in 2010 to 94.4% funded in 2011 and 97% funded in 2012. A 2013 annual report won’t be available until early 2014.
Queen’s University is a prestigious Canadian university located in Kingston, Ontario. It was established in 1841 and claims Sir Sandford Fleming, notable for his invention of standard time, as one of its early chancellors.
