Canadian conference appoints interim CFO
December 1, 2014
SASKATOON, Sask.—Canadian conference executive director Willy Reimer is pleased to announce the appointment of Jim Davidson as CCMBC’s interim Chief Financial Officer, effective January 1, 2015. Davidson will work 0.8 FTE and continue to live in Saskatoon, travelling to Winnipeg as necessary. Davidson will oversee both the financial operations of CCMBC and Legacy Investments Inc.
“After a long search, we’re thrilled that God has led us to Jim,” says Reimer. “His heart for the church and his accounting wisdom will be great assets to the team. We invite Mennonite Brethren across the country to pray for Jim and his family as he begins this new role.”
Davidson is a chartered accountant and comes to the Canadian conference with many years of experience, most recently as director and CFO of Falco Resources Ltd. He formerly served as VP Finance and CFO of Great Western Minerals Group, and CFO of Athabasca Potash.
Davidson is also passionate about his community, and currently sits on the board of The Bridge on 20th, a not-for-profit centre in Saskatoon’s inner city.
Davidson and his wife Colleen are members of Forest Grove Community Church, Saskatoon, where Jim serves as a council member. The couple has two grown sons and one grandson.
In January 2015, Reimer interviewed Davidson about his conversion experience, family and future goals as he steps into his new role.
