We congratulate Peter, Sheila, and Donna and look forward to their continued contribution.

BCI also announces that Rob Taylor will join the Board of Directors on January 1, 2022. The Teachers’ Pension Plan Board of Trustees has appointed Rob for a two-year term.

Rob is currently chair (vice-chair beginning on January 1, 2022) of the Teachers’ Pension Board of Trustees, having first been appointed to that board in January 2015.

Rob is a retired educator who spent 34 years in the education sector, including 25 years as a classroom teacher and five years as director of instruction – human resources in School District 27 (Cariboo-Chilcotin). He also spent four years working on the staff of the BC Teachers’ Federation as an assistant director responsible primarily for pensions and benefits.

Rob holds a B.Ed and M.Ed from the University of Victoria. He has also completed the Pension Plan Administration Certificate at Humber College, the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans’ Advanced Trust Management Standards program, and other professional development activities related to public sector pension plans.

Rob succeeds Ken Tannar as the Teachers’ Pension Plan member on the BCI Board. Ken first joined the board in 2015 and has been a member of the Human Resources and Governance Committee and the Audit Committee. As we welcome Rob and look forward to his contributions, we also want to express our sincere thanks to Ken for his long-standing commitment to BCI’s governance.

Our board is structured in accordance with the Public Sector Pension Plans Act. Of the seven-member Board, BCI’s four largest pension plan clients each appoint a member from their board of trustees, and the Minister of Finance appoints the other three — two of which must be representatives of clients.
