Chief Operating Officer

Sheryl builds our capacity for long-term growth in a way that reflects Humanity’s core values, goals, and objectives.
As COO, Sheryl develops and implements a broad range of business strategies at Humanity Financial.
Before joining us, Sheryl spent more than 25 years in leadership roles at Vancity: one of Canada’s most successful and socially innovative credit unions. She directed its diversity, equity, and inclusion program; led changes associated with a major technological transformation; and organized its human resource response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sheryl also took a two-year secondment to become the Chief Operating Officer at Reconciliation Canada.

It’s wonderful to work with colleagues who are as committed to financial excellence as they are to the human relationships so vital to our communities.
