OMERS Sponsors Corporation announces Michael Rolland as interim SC CEO

March 22, 2019
The SC Co-Chairs are pleased to announce that Michael Rolland will lead OMERS Sponsors Corporation as CEO on an interim basis.

Known for his high level of integrity, investment track record, genuine interest in people and deep ability to create value for all stakeholders, Michael has driven success

across many initiatives over his 20 years at OMERS. He has a deep and unique understanding of the mandates of both the AC and SC Boards, making him the ideal leader for the SC at this critical next stage of its evolution.

Michael’s focus will be to help the Sponsors Corporation Board deliver on its key responsibilities related to plan design, contributions, strategy, stabilization reserves and valuation filing.

In addition to this new role, Michael will retain his position as President and Chief Operating Officer, Asia-Pacific for OMERS – continuing to oversee and direct OMERS operations, business relationships and the growth opportunities in that region. 

Michael’s transition to leadership of the SC will begin immediately, with an effective date of April 15, allowing for a smooth transition ahead of Paul Harrietha’s retirement from the SC on April 30.
