I am pleased to announce that Christopher Veach has accepted my offer of appointment as our next Diocesan Financial Controller, effective October 25th, 2021. Chris is a licensed Chartered Professional Accountant in both Ohio and Nova Scotia. He has 17 years of professional accounting experience as an auditor, controller, and Chief Financial Officer across a range of industries, including not-for-profit human services. Chris also has significant long-term financial and operational forecasting experience.
Chris is a collaborative leader and a creative thinker who is skilled in working with a variety of people, regardless of their financial or accounting background or ability. He is both a problem solver and a listener. He also has a great sense of humour! Resident in Nova Scotia, Chris looks forward to supporting the Diocese and parishes as they collaboratively plan for the future of the Anglican Church in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
Chris was baptized and confirmed at an inner-city Episcopal (Anglican) parish in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2005. His appreciation and awareness of Anglican tradition and respect for the potential of the Church to transform lives and communities will inform his work. We look forward to welcoming Chris to this key role in our Diocese and to working with him.
Peace and blessings,
