"His experience, wisdom, and skill have been critically important to TIFF, and he will continue the tradition of exemplary Board leadership provided by Collette Chilton and her predecessors."
"Having another successful endowment investor in a leadership role at TIFF is enormously helpful," said TIFF Chief Investment Officer Jay Willoughby. "Scott understands the important mission TIFF pursues helping non-profits, our investment approach, and the market nuances we attempt to mine on behalf of endowed charities."
