Laurie Tugman: Advancing the field for members in industry

Meet a member who is sharing his wealth of experience and making a difference in his profession and his community.

Our Strategy, Management Accounting & Finance Advisory Board (formerly Members in Industry Advisory Board) aids us in advancing the field for members in industry in both the Canadian and global landscapes. Laurie Tugman, BA, FCPA, FCA, ICD.D, has led the group since its inception in June 2012 and has been a leader in integrating volunteers from all three of our legacy designations. 

Laurie brings a wealth of experience to this board. His current and past board experience includes:

  • chair, Nexterra Systems Corp.
  • board member, Newalta Corporation
  • board member, Pinova Holdings
  • chair, Chemistry Industry Association of Canada
  • chair and board member, various committees, Financial Executives International (FEI) Canada

He has always balanced his career with at least one commitment to our profession or member organizations. He has assumed each responsibility because he felt he could contribute and make a difference for the profession.

He has also shared his wealth of experience by volunteering for many years in his own community, including with Scouts Canada for more than ten years and in the leadership of his church in several volunteer roles.

We recognize Laurie’s extensive contribution to our profession and recently nominated him to be our representative on the International Federations of Accountants (IFAC) Professional Accountants in Business Committee (PAIB).
