Eye of FEI

Edmonton Chapter Member Spotlight

FEI Canada boasts more than 1,500 members nationwide. This professional network brings together financial executives to enhance their professional success, to advocate on issues that affect the finance function in Canada, and to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience among its members. With Eye of FEI, we will be sharing a glimpse into the accomplished members that make up our Edmonton Chapter. Nominated by another member based on their accomplishments, leadership, and shared values, this monthly Member Spotlight will uncover the personal benefit of membership through a thoughtful Q&A.  

Our first nomination is by Norm Ferguson, FEI Canada - Thought Leadership Forum Chair and former Managing Director at Ogilvie LLP. As Chair, Norm has dedicated the last eight years to the development of committees to address issues of importance to CFO’s and other financial executives across the country. This includes advocacy on behalf of financial executives on prominent issues.

May Member Spotlight:

Levonne Grier CPA, CMA, Vice President & Program Chair, FEI Edmonton Chapter & CFO, Waste Logic Inc.

  Levonne Grier, the first of our Eye of FEI Member Spotlights, is the newly appointed Vice President and Program Chair of the Edmonton Chapter. In the following Q&A, Levonne  shares her thoughts on involvement in the Chapter and the growth opportunities she has experienced to date:

1.  What benefit do you get out of your involvement with FEI?  

Network, network, network – you get out what you put in! I enjoy getting to know people on a personal level, gathering inspiration from their varied experiences. FEI creates that space for collaboration leading to meaningful connections, career opportunities, business solutions, and lessons learned. Whether it is found on the golf course at the National Conference or at the Edmonton Chapter Thought Leadership Events, I am always left with the lingering question – how can I utilize my learnings in my current business environment? Plus, the verifiable professional development hours are a bonus! 

2.  Have you met anyone through FEI that has become a close professional colleague or personal friend? 

There are multiple people within FEI that could fall into this category. It is about finding those connections that you can learn and grow with, while being your true authentic self. FEI has created the space to have vulnerable relationships and share our stories – whether it is the challenges of being a female in finance or trying to find balance with a young family at home. It has become more than just a network for me; it has become a community. 

3.  Where do you see FEI going as an organization in Edmonton, in 5- and 10-years time? 

My prediction is that FEI will continue to evolve the current value propositions of membership and will connect with the communities we serve in a meaningful, purposeful way. Members will be informed on the thought leadership trends within specific industries, including technological advancements and integrations from continued global digital transformation. More importantly, we will have fun doing it! 

4.  What inspires you about being a Board Member of FEI? 

The best part is the team. Each area and committee of the board work diligently together to ensure that members and sponsors get the best experiences. Being a board member also allows for creativity around programming events and attracting and retaining new members. 

I enjoy participating in national committees such as the national programming committee and the 2023 national conference committee for Quebec City. These committees are dedicated to finding relevant keynote speakers, thought leadership topics, and emerging trends for members to enjoy. Exciting to note, Edmonton will be hosting the national conference in 2024 and will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase business leaders and relevant keynotes in the area!
