Executive Director Appointment

May 2016

From the Office of the President

It is with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of Louise Yearwood to the position of Executive Director, Alumni Affairs and Advancement at Victoria University.  For the past decade Louise has held the position of Executive Director, Advancement & Community Relations at Havergal College, where she held responsibility for the advancement, alumnae relations, and marketing communications portfolios.  Prior to this, Louise was the Senior Development Officer for the Faculty of Communication & Design at Ryerson University, the Director of Development at the Gardiner Museum, and the Director of Development at the Royal Conservatory of Music, where she first made her transition into the advancement profession.

A graduate of Victoria College, Louise brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to her new role gained through many years of active leadership and engagement in the promotion of education.  Louise will assume her new position on June 27, 2016.  Please join me in offering Louise a warm welcome to the Victoria University community.

I would also like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere gratitude to Larry Davies who will be retiring from his position as Executive Director, Alumni Affairs and Advancement at the end of June 2016.  Larry has served Victoria University in an exemplary way, building over many years a strong community of students, alumni and friends who have supported Victoria with their time, their talent, and their resources.  I hope you will join me in thanking Larry for his outstanding commitment to Victoria University.
