James Waddell is an elder at Trinity Presbyterian Church York Mills, Toronto. He knows and understands the church and its ministry and priorities very well. James is a Chartered Professional Accountant and only last week retired from TMX Group Limited in Toronto.* While at TMX, James was the Chief Risk Officer from 2003-2012 and then the Chief Internal Auditor from 2003 -2023. The church is very fortunate to be the beneficiary of James’ extensive experience with audits, finance coordination, risk management, implementing accountability frameworks, process remediation and governance. Our current CFO Oliver Ng is working closely with James to hand over knowledge and responsibilities in advance of his retirement on July 1, when James will take on the full responsibilities as Interim CFO. We are very grateful to James for taking on this new role, to the finance department staff for their service and to everyone for welcoming James and supporting him in the important work he has taken up in the church.
