By PFM Search

PFM Executive Search is pleased to announce the appointment of Malcolm Berry as the new incoming President and CEO of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, effective March 2021.

Malcolm will be coming from St. Louis, Missouri, where he has been leading the Foundation at St. Louis Children’s Hospital for close to four years. During his time there he drove the Foundation’s strategy focused on rebuilding and growth, architecting their first fundraising campaign in over a decade, and growing the organization’s revenue by over 45%.

Prior to this, he spent over 10 years at SickKids Foundation in Toronto in many roles, most notably, as Vice President, Major Gifts, where he oversaw Major Gifts, Gift and Estate Planning, Stewardship and Donor Relations. He has also served in leadership roles with the Woodmark Group, a US/Canadian organization of premier children’s hospitals, as well as past Chair of the Board of Directors for the Canadian Association of Gift Planners. His passion for philanthropy and its vital role in improving children’s health is evident.

Malcolm and his family, including his wife and two children, are originally from Toronto. Malcolm has a Bachelor of Science from Queen’s University, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto and a Masters of Business Administration from McMaster University.

Malcolm is excited to be returning to Canada to continue his personal mission of transforming child health outcomes through the advancement of philanthropy in his new role at BCCHF. Teri Nicholas, outgoing President and CEO, will continue in her role with the Foundation until Malcolm starts, and will support him through a transition period.
