New Auditor General for Local Government Appointed

By PFM Search

PFM Executive Search is proud to announce that Gordon Ruth has been appointed as the new B.C. auditor general for local government (AGLG) with a mandate to lead a new, collaborative relationship between local governments across the province and the office.

The appointment is effective Oct. 1, 2015 and will allow for transition from his current position as EVP, Certification & Operations with the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) of British Columbia.  Gordon graduated from the University of Victoria and was previously the CFO of Metro Vancouver (GVRD); he brings to the role a unique combination of financial acumen as well as knowledge of local government.

With new, stable leadership and enhancements to the audit council, the AGLG is now well-positioned for the long term to help local governments improve their operations and deliver services more efficiently, effectively and economically.
