Message from the President

jmMr. John Murphy, LLB was elected President of The Pillars Trust Fund (PTF) at its Annual General Meeting in June (2015). The Board of PTF wishes to congratulate and warmly welcome John to this new role.

John is a member of the law firm Borden Ladner Gervais (BLG).  He is nationally regarded as a top expert in his field with many honours to his name.  (He has also had the special pleasure of seeing his daughter, Sarah, elected Queen of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, 2014).

Despite a busy career he has always found time to serve the community being at varying times on the board of The Sacred Heart School of Montreal, Beaconsfield Elementary School Governing Council, and he was a past member of the English Speaking Catholic Council (ESCC).  As Vice President of PTF he was enormously supportive of the new directions and outreach that Pillars has begun (see the Pillars Trust Fund – Newsletter – under the category “ABOUT” on this website). John brings the same skills and energy to his new role and Pillars Trust will be ably served by his commitment and very capable leadership.

And in June two new Directors, Meghan Brown and Jonathan Elkas, joined the Pillars Trust Fund Board.  See a complete list of The Pillars Trust Fund’s Board of Directors under the category “ABOUT” on this website.
