BCI Announces Reappointment of Gayle Gorrill and Peter Milburn to Board of Directors

June 22, 2022

BCI is pleased to announce the reappointment of both Gayle Gorrill and Peter Milburn to BCI’s Board of Directors by the Minister of Finance, the Honourable Selina Robinson.

Gayle was first appointed to BCI’s Board in 2018, and her term has been extended to June 18, 2025. Gayle is chair of the audit committee.

Gayle holds the ICD.D designation from the Institute of Corporate Directors, as well as bachelor of business administration and received her chartered accountant (CPA CA) designation in 1985, becoming a Fellow of the CPA CA in 2016. Gayle has primarily spent her career in university finance and operations, and was the first woman to hold the role of vice-president finance and operations at the University of Victoria. After 15 years in this role, Gayle has recently retired.

Peter was first appointed to BCI’s Board in 2016, and his term has been extended for an additional year, ending December 31, 2023. Peter has held the role of chair since his appointment.

Most recently he fulfilled the role of Deputy Minister of Finance and Secretary to Treasury Board. Prior to that appointment, Peter built his career within the BC Ministry of Transportation and retired after 33-years in various roles such as Deputy Minister, Chief Operating Officer, and Executive Project Director for the Sea to Sky Highway Improvement Project. Peter holds a bachelor of applied science degree in civil engineering from the University of British Columbia.

When asked about his time as chair for BCI’s board, Peter said, “It’s been a very rewarding role and I look forward to another year in this capacity. The transformation BCI has undergone during my time on the board has been monumental. It’s been a privilege to advise on, and witness, the amazing work management and staff do to help so many British Columbians secure their financial futures.”

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.
