Paul Harrietha, Chief Executive Officer at OMERS Sponsors Corporation (SC), has announced his intention to retire, effective April 30, 2019.
 
Paul joined OMERS in December 2016 after a successful career in the pension world. Prior to OMERS SC, he was a senior principal at Eckler

I am proud of the work that we’ve accomplished together and am confident that this will serve the organization well into the future.”
