Charles-Antoine St-Jean has been appointed president and CEO of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada). St-Jean’s appointment becomes effective on July 20, as he takes over for the retiring Joy Thomas.
St-Jean has worked with multiple government, corporate and not-for-profit stakeholders throughout his career, and has served as Comptroller General of Canada and chair of the Public Sector Accounting Board.
“Charles-Antoine comes with an exceptional track record and has the leadership and professional skills the board believes are required to lead CPA Canada forward,” says CPA Canada board chair Amanda Whitewood. “He will work with CPA Canada’s strong internal team and the CPA bodies across Canada and Bermuda, bringing a fresh perspective as we tackle the challenges the profession faces today and in the future.”
