What makes you a good mentor?
I'm a big supporter of Carleton University, and love to see students from Carleton succeed, both in Ottawa and elsewhere. Happy to help Carleton students make those initial steps in their careers.
About Doug Williams
I’m a Finance and Operational leader at MD Financial for the past 13 years, starting out in internal audit before switching to the finance stream. Different previous roles at MD have included from Sox control documentation, Broker/Dealer system implementation (regulatory expert), IFRS implementation, Financial Statement preparation and Operational leader. In my current role, I’ve been a part of a number of significant financial-related system changes, as well as piloting the use of robotic process automation, derisking our pension plan and assisting due diligence efforts as MD ownership changed from the Canadian Medical Association to Scotiabank.
Prior to wording at MD, I spend 5 years at Deloitte as a manager in the audit group, focusing on non-profit organizations while earning my CPA.
I also taught a number of accounting courses at Carleton earlier in my career, as well as marking practice exams to help students prepare for their CPA examinations.
