Dear UFV community,
On behalf of the UFV Board of Governors, I am very pleased to announce our unanimous decision to appoint Jackie Hogan as interim President and Vice-Chancellor, effective July 1. Ms. Hogan will succeed Dr. Mark Evered upon his planned retirement, while the search for UFV’s next President continues.
Jackie’s tremendous knowledge, leadership and dedication will serve UFV students, faculty, staff and communities very well through this transitional phase. In her current role as Chief Financial Officer and Vice-President Administration, she has been an integral part of the leadership, governance and management of UFV, and is highly respected in government relations and by our colleagues throughout the post-secondary sector.
A Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), Ms. Hogan also holds a Bachelor of Accounting Science degree from the University of Calgary. She is also a proud alumna of UFV, earning the Lieutenant Governor’s Silver Medal for academic excellence with her Diploma in Business Administration. Professionally, Jackie joined UFV in 1989, rising through the organization to become CFO in 2010. In 2014, the Association of Women in Finance awarded Jackie the prestigious PEAK Award for Excellence in the Public Sector.
Please join me in expressing our deepest appreciation to Jackie for accepting this appointment. Together with our admirable faculty, staff and leadership team, Jackie will ensure UFV continues to deliver exceptional education and service to our students and communities.
