TORONTO, June 13, 2017 – OPTrust President and CEO Hugh O’Reilly has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance (CCGG).

The CCGG promotes good governance practices within Canadian public companies and works to ensure that the regulatory environment aligns in the best interests of long-term shareholders. They play a critical advocacy role in Canada and around the world by commenting on proposed regulatory changes.

“I’m honoured to have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors at the CCGG,” said OPTrust President and CEO Hugh O’Reilly. “OPTrust believes good governance practices support stronger long-term performance and enhance value. These outcomes align very closely with the interests of our members and I’m looking forward to contributing to the excellent work done by the CCGG in this regard.”

The CCGG’s membership consists of institutional investors, including pension funds, mutual funds and third-party money managers, who are invested in publicly listed Canadian companies. Together, members of the CCGG manage approximately $3 trillion in assets.

OPTrust is a long-term member of the CCGG, with executive members participating on the board and committees periodically since 2005.
