Organizational update at Mint head office

The Royal Canadian Mint has shuffled some of its senior officers and executive team after Jennifer Camelon, the Crown corporation’s chief financial officer (CFO) and senior vice-president of finance and administration, announced her resignation.

Camelon, who previously served as the Mint’s interim master before Marie Lemay took the helm in 2019, resigned effective April 13.

Camelon has since joined Canadian Blood Servies as its chief financial officer and corporate services director.

The following day marked Camelon’s first day as the CFO and vice-president of corporate services for Canadian Blood Services, a non-profit charitable organization.

Until her former Mint role is filled, Lenard Cheung, the senior director of Canadian circulation, will serve as the acting CFO and vice-president of finance and administration.

Jana Fritz, the Mint’s chief accountant and senior finance director, was added as a signatory to the statement of management responsibility in the Crown corporation’s latest quarterly report.

Effective May 2, the Mint also appointed James Malizia as its first vice-president of corporate security. In this role, Malizia will oversee the Mint’s physical and cyber-security portfolios.
