Town hires new Treasurer

April 28, 2016   ·   0 Comments

Effective May 16, Marc Villeneuve will assume the role of Treasurer of the Town of Orangeville. Prior to his current position as the Director of Finance/Treasurer for the Town of Midland, Mr. Villeneuve worked with BDO Canada LLP in Alliston as the Accounting and Assurance Manager, and with BDO in Barrie as the Senior Accountant.

A Chartered Professional Accountant, Mr. Villeneuve holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Laurentian University in his home town of Sudbury. He has been accredited as a BDO Accounting and Assurance Specialist – which sets education, professional development and practical experience requirements on an annual basis.

Following the Town’s recruitment and selection process, Mr. Villeneuve was endorsed as the successful candidate by Orangeville Council at its April 18th meeting. The appointment will be formalized with the passing of a bylaw.

As Treasurer of the Town, Mr. Villeneuve will be responsible for the management and administration of the Treasury Department including the Information Technology division.  His primary responsibilities will include overseeing the financial management of the Town, including budgets, financial reporting, financial planning and forecasting and supervision of department staff.

Mr. Villeneuve says his spare time is devoted to family. He and his wife Pam – and their three children under the age of 3 – currently reside in Midhurst.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Town of Orangeville as its Treasurer,” he said.  “It’s a beautiful, vibrant community with an abundance of charm.  I look forward to working with staff and Council to contribute to its ongoing and future success.”

He will be the town’s third treasurer in as many years. His predecessor, Brian Parrott, was relieved of the position last May. Mr. Parrott was hired in January 2013, after working nine years in York Region. He replaced Bill McKennan, who was also dismissed.

In both cases, while the Town searched for a new treasurer, deputy treasurer Karen Mills filled the role on an interim basis as acting Treasurer.
