OBSI Begins Search for Next Ombudsmanpar Andrew Rickard | May 11 2015 10:39AM
The search is on for a new person to head the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments (OBSI).
In March OBSI announced that Douglas Melville would be stepping down on May 31 in order to accept a similar position for the Channel Islands. OBSI says that its board of directors has hired the executive search firm Desautels Consulting to help find Melville's successor. In a press release announcing the job posting, OBSI encouraged those with questions, candidate recommendations, or who wish to apply for the position to contact Noel Desautels by phone at (416) 266-6668 or by email at [email protected].
"There will be a period of transition between Mr. Melville's departure and a new appointment." says OBSI. "During the transition period the Chair of OBSI’s Board of Directors, Fernand Bélisle, will oversee the management team until a replacement for Mr. Melville is selected. The Board anticipates the new Ombudsman and CEO will be in place by the fall."
