William (Bill) Vasiliou, President of the ACFE-GTA Chapter is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has approved his recommendation that Mr. Julian Wong, BAFM, MAcc, CPA, CA, CFE join the Chapter Board of Directors. The appointment is effective immediately.
Mr. Wong, who recently begun volunteering for the Chapter, is currently with President's Choice Financial in the Investigations & Operational Risk Management area. Julian graduated from the University of Waterloo Honours Bachelors of Accounting and Finance (BAFM) Co-op Program and went on to complete his Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree at Waterloo. He has also earned his CPA, CA, and CFE designations.
Julian has workplace experience with the United Way of Greater Toronto, as well as PwC Canada. He was a Teaching Assistant for 3 years while at the University of Waterloo, and met the academic achievement required to be placed on the Dean's Honour List. Also, Julian has earned all three levels of The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award (Bronze, Silver and Gold).
In commenting on the Board's ratification of the recommendation, Bill said, "I am thrilled to welcome Julian to the Board. His appointment will help to ensure an effective and efficient operation of the Chapter going forward, by ensuring we have an odd number of directors, and given the departure of our Treasurer some time ago, Julian is well-placed to fulfill that role when a new president is elected and the incoming board of directors assumes responsibility for the Chapter later this week."
The Chapter will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on October 2, 2019, at the BMO Conference Centre, 3550 Pharmacy Ave, Toronto, Ontario. The incoming board of directors will elect a new president at their first meeting following the AGM, and Bill Vasiliou will transition to the role of Immediate Past President.
The Chapter is hosting an Ethics Training Day following the AGM, which is now completely sold-out!
