TORONTO, July 4, 2018 – Today, Will Fleissig has advised the Board that he is stepping down as CEO.
Waterfront Toronto has been fortunate to have a leader with such an innovative vision of what Toronto’s waterfront could and should be, and we wish him the very best as he takes on new challenges in the future.
Waterfront Toronto is now turning its focus to implementing the vision our team has worked towards, and we’re more excited than ever about the future.
Mr. Fleissig noted that he is very proud of the accomplishments of Waterfront Toronto and the support he has received from the team. He knows that the next stage of the waterfront revitalization is in very good hands.
We are privileged to have a skilled and experienced board, staff and executive to draw on during this time of transition and opportunity. There will be a three-person interim leadership team in place, including Michael Nobrega as Acting CEO, Meg Davis, our Chief Development Officer, and myself in my capacity as Chair, while we search for a new CEO.
Michael Nobrega is a former President and CEO of OMERS, current Chair of the Ontario Centres of Excellence, and sits on Waterfront Toronto’s Board of Directors. Michael will be taking a leave from the Board for the duration of his tenure on the interim leadership team. Meg Davis is Waterfront Toronto’s Chief Development Officer, and has been with the organization for 11 years. She has extensive experience as a real estate and commercial transactions expert, notably with KPMG. The interim leadership team will not be accepting any additional compensation for these roles.
We look forward to the next chapter in the transformation of Toronto’s waterfront.
