Less than three years after joining the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), Julie Levesque (EMBA 2016), has been promoted to Managing Director Head of Data and system delivery at CPPIB. She now leads the execution of the project portfolio as well as the data and technology strategic initiatives while prioritizing all the IT investment team objectives and mandate. This is a new role for the organization and it allows her to deepen her business domain knowledge as well as work towards optimizing the operations of the Fund. Prior to joining CPPIB, Julie was Vice-President IT Delivery, Finances, Risks, Capital Markets and HR at National Bank. She has 13 years of experience in the financial sector and more than 20 years in information technology.
She shares that: ‘The EMBA has provided me with an additional set of learning and experiences that are now part of my leadership toolkit. It has enabled me to take on broader more strategic and challenging mandate outside of my comfort zone’.
