Congratulations, Tim Brodhead
Tim Brodhead's retirement announcement offers the perfect opportunity to send him our most heartfelt congratulations and our sincere gratitude for all his outstanding contributions over the years that he has served as the President of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. Although it is hard to imagine the Foundation without him, his wise guidance has ensured that the Foundation's next President, the Board of Directors and the organization's staff are very able and prepared to continue as a leading, learning organization, strategically working with others for major social change.
Tim's intelligent, compassionate, clear sense of what needs to be done has been a major influence in our country, and around the world, throughout his entire professional career. Adding to this, are his wonderful personal qualities that make him a caring and loyal colleague and friend. But let's not be fooled by any thoughts of 'retirement'! This moment of transition does not hold any sense of an ending; rather our minds and hearts leap immediately to wondering and waiting to see where and how Tim will next focus his amazing gifts as a statesman, thought leader, provocateur, advocate, and true Canadian!
It is with great anticipation that we watch for Tim Brodhead's next steps into this new phase of his life. What is more than clear to us, is that he will undoubtedly make a difference - and also, that we would be so very privileged to accompany him in some way, as he keeps on making the world a better place.
