SACKVILLE, NB — Robert Inglis will be Mount Allison University’s next vice-president, finance and administration.
Inglis, a chartered accountant who has worked in the university’s financial services office since 2000, is replacing David Stewart who will be retiring in the spring after a 35-year career at Mount Allison.
Inglis begins his new post on July 1, 2014.
“I am pleased to welcome Robert Inglis in his new role as vice-president, finance and administration,” says university president and vice-chancellor Dr. Robert Campbell. “His experience and leadership in Mount Allison’s financial services office is admirable, and he has been a key component in the university’s long-standing excellent fiscal management.”
“Mount Allison has been a significant part of both my professional and personal life as an employee and a graduate,” said Inglis. “I am excited to continue working with the University community in this new role and look forward to the challenges and opportunities it will present.”
As university controller, Inglis has overseen the financial affairs of Mount Allison University since 2002 and has expertise in a wide variety of areas including governance, financial analysis and accountability, not-for-profit management, and financial sustainability. Inglis has also taught financial accounting courses in Mount Allison’s commerce department.
Prior to Mount Allison, Inglis held positions at Aon Insurance Managers (Bermuda) Ltd., and KPMG. He is a member of the Canadian, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia Institutes of Chartered Accountants and serves on the Treasury and Investment Committee of the Canadian Association of University Business Officers. He has also served on the Sackville Memorial Hospital Foundation board, and the Atlantic Association of University Financial Officers.
Inglis holds a bachelor of commerce from Mount Allison and completed the Foundation Year Programme at the University of King’s College.
The university initiated a search process to recruit its next vice-president, finance and administration this past summer. The president chaired a search committee, which comprised student, faculty, and staff representation. The committee worked in conjunction with the human resources consulting firm, Knightsbridge Robertson Surrette. The committee sought and received input from the university community at each step of the process, which helped the committee in establishing the position profile, priorities, requisite qualifications, and required competencies for the role.
