The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District has a new secretary treasurer.

Richard Rennie will start in his new position with the school district on July 1.

Rennie has a Chartered Professional Accountant designation, a Bachelor of Commerce degree from UBC, and more than 15 years of progressive financial leadership experience.

Last year he was hired in the role of assistant secretary treasurer, overseeing finance, procurement, and transportation services. He led the planning, implementation and ongoing monitoring of the 2022-23 Student Family and Affordability Fund and the development of the 2023-24 preliminary budget.

“Richard’s proven expertise in strategic planning, system implementation, budgeting, financial planning, reporting, analysis, and governance will be a significant asset to our district,” said school district superintendent Harry Dhillon, noting that in his former role as Chief Financial Officer and executive director, he led large and diverse teams across a complex public sector organization, enhancing his skill at overseeing a broad portfolio including budget planning, development, implementation, and monitoring and facilities management.

“His work in the assistant secretary treasurer role has been nothing short of exceptional, making him the ideal candidate to take over the secretary treasurer position,” added Dhillon.

Rennie will succeed Flavia Coughlan, worked with SD42 for more than a decade.

“The district extends its heartfelt thanks to Ms. Coughlan for her years of outstanding service and wishes her well in her new role as secretary treasurer with the Vancouver School Board,” shared the district.
