A message from Debra Hewson:
In a significant transition for our firm, I am pleased to announce the appointments of J. Anthony (Tony) Hepburn to Chair Emeritus, Ross Turnbull to Chair and Andy Eisenbock to Vice Chair of Odlum Brown Limited.
After 17 years as Chairman, J. Anthony (Tony) Hepburn will become Odlum Brown’s first Chair Emeritus and will continue to serve his clients as a Portfolio Manager. In January, Tony will celebrate 50 years at Odlum Brown – and what a remarkable 50 years it has been! After joining the firm’s Research Department in 1969, he became President and CEO in 1978, a role he held for 23 years before becoming Chairman in 2001. Throughout his tenure, Tony has been the unwavering face of our firm, guiding us through the rough spots and celebrating our successes.
Tony has influenced the Canadian investment community through his extensive volunteerism on numerous boards and advisory committees, both industry-related and philanthropic. He has received the Chancellor’s Distinguished Service Award from Simon Fraser University and in 2008 was elected a Fellow (FCPA, FCA) of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of BC (now the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia). Tony’s inspirational leadership, stewardship and mentorship have ensured that Odlum Brown is well positioned for the future.
Incoming Chair Ross Turnbull is a Vice President, Director and Portfolio Manager who has been with Odlum Brown for 18 years. Prior to becoming a Portfolio Manager, he was an analyst on the firm’s Equity Research team from 2000 to 2005.
Incoming Vice Chair Andy Eisenbock has been with Odlum Brown for 30 years. As well as his roles as Vice President, Director and Investment Advisor, he is an active member of the firm’s Executive Committee.
On behalf of the firm, I am delighted to welcome Ross and Andy as Chair and Vice Chair. Over their careers, both have demonstrated an admirable commitment to their clients and to the success of Odlum Brown, and I look forward to working with them both in their new roles.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you, our valued clients, for the trust and confidence you place in Odlum Brown. We are very fortunate to have such great clients – thank you for taking this journey with us.
