North Grenville has a new Acting Director of Finance/Treasurer. Mr. Femi Ogunrinde will be taking over the role of Acting Director of Finance/Treasurer following the resignation of Mr. Brad Brookman on December 24.
“On behalf of Council, we would like to thank Mr. Brookman for his service to the Municipality and wish him well with his future endeavors,” said Mayor Peckford.
Mr. Ogunrinde, who has been the Deputy Director of Finance/Treasurer since September, 2020, will immediately assume responsibility for the Municipality’s financial management. Mr. Ogunrinde is a seasoned financial manager and leader with over 14 years of experience in finance and accounting.
