The Bulletin 

I am delighted to announce that the Agenda Committee of the Academic Board has approved the appointment of Dr. Tiff Macklem as the new Dean of the Rotman School of Management. Dr. Macklem's appointment takes effect July 1, 2014 for a five-year term.

Dr. Macklem is currently Senior Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada. In that role, he is the Bank's Chief Operating Officer and a member of its Board of Directors. His duties include overseeing strategic planning and coordinating the Bank's operations, as well as sharing responsibility with the Governor and four Deputy Governors for monetary policy and the Bank's role in promoting financial stability. He has vast experience managing large institutions, translating academic research into public policy and representing Canada on the world stage.

Prior to his appointment at the Bank, Dr. Macklem served as Associate Deputy Minister of the federal Department of Finance and Canada's Finance Deputy at the G7 and G20. He also served as Chair of the Standing Committee on Standards Implementation of the Financial Stability Board. In that role, he worked to establish an international system of peer review to promote and assess the implementation of new financial standards across the 24 most financially important countries in the world.

Born in Montréal, Quebec, Dr. Macklem graduated from Queen's University in 1983 with a Bachelor's degree in economics, and completed a master's degree and a PhD in economics at the University of Western Ontario.

I am grateful to Professor Peter Pauly, who has agreed to continue serving as Interim Dean of the Rotman School until Dr. Macklem begins his term as Dean next summer. I also want to take this opportunity to thank the members of the advisory committee.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Macklem to this important role and to the University of Toronto.
