OTPP Appoints Former Teacher & Principal Gene Lewis to Advisory Board

Published

on

Former-educator Gene Lewis has been appointed by the Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF) to serve a two-year term on the 11-member board of the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, the largest single-profession pension plan in Canada with some C$ 180.5 billion (US$ 145.4) in assets as of June 30, 2017. His term on OTPP’s board began on January 1, 2018.

Lewis began his career as an elementary school teacher and principal in Ontario, and served as general secretary of the Elementary Teacher’s Federation of Ontario from 1998 until his retirement in 2013, during which he was an active participant on OTF’s executive and board. In 2002 he was awarded the Queen’s Golden Jubilee medal in recognition for his service to education. Lewis’ involvement over the years with OTPP’s Teachers’ Sustainability Workgroup and the Partners’ Consultative Committee make him uniquely suited to a position on its board.

OTPP’s sponsors – the OTF and the provincial government of Ontario – may each appoint five board members and together select a chair. Each board member may serve up to four consecutive terms.
