As well, Sharon Pel will be taking on the role of vice-chair. Appointed to the board by the Ontario government in February 2017, Pel has served as a senior vice-president and group head of legal and business affairs at TMX Group and a partner at Torys LLP.

The appointments follow the OPTrust’s governance structure, which dictates the positions are filled by one appointee from the government and one from the OPSEU, alternating which entity appoints each role every two years.
