Teachers’ CEO Leech becomes chancellor of Queen’s

Jim Leech is replacing David Dodge as chancellor of Queen’s University, becoming the university’s highest officer and its ceremonial head.

Mr. Leech, who has announced plans to retire as CEO of the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan in January, will begin his three-year term next July after Mr. Dodge departs. The former governor of the Bank of Canada has been chancellor since 2008, but said in June he would not serve another term.
