Blair Morrison, chief executive officer and chief statutory officer of the British Columbia Financial Services Authority, is retiring in early 2025 after more than five years in his current role.

I will leave the organization in good hands and well positioned to continue its success in the future.”

The recruitment of the BCFSA’s new CEO/CSO will be conducted by the CEO search committee of the BCFSA board of directors. Massey Henry, an external search firm, will support the search committee in the recruitment and selection process, the release noted.
