Re:        Director, Office of the President and University Events

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Bryn MacPherson-White as Director, Office of the President and University Events, effective September 1, 2005.

A graduate of McGill University, Bryn has served very effectively for the last two years as Director, University Events & Presidential Liaison (Advancement). Prior to joining the University of Toronto, Bryn was Director of the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario under three Lieutenant Governors: the Honourable Lincoln Alexander, the Honourable Henry (Hal) Jackman, and the Honourable Hilary Weston.

Bryn’s new role, which she has held on an acting basis since July 1, combines management of the President's office with the events and advancement functions Bryn held previously. Specifically, Bryn will direct the overall office operations and management, provide strategic and operational oversight of the University Events portfolio, and support the President in issues management, public relations, and protocol.

Bryn MacPherson-White may be contacted by telephone at 416.946.5848 or by email at bryn.macpherson.white@utoronto.ca.
