Toronto (June 4, 2013) – WWF-Canada announced today that David Miller will become President and Chief Executive Officer effective September 3rd.
Throughout his professional career as both a lawyer and a public servant, David has demonstrated passion, sustained commitment and leadership in conservation. As Mayor of the City of Toronto from 2003 to 2010, David introduced and led a comprehensive program of greenhouse gas reduction that became a blueprint for other cities around the world. He brought Earth Hour and a satellite event for Live Earth to Toronto and he championed such environmental initiatives as greater investment in cycling infrastructure, public transit, reducing threats to migratory birds and protection of the Toronto waterfront. He also served as chair of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, an organization that brings together 40 of the world’s largest cities to address climate risks through urban initiatives.
Since leaving the Mayor’s office, David has remained an important voice for nature and conservation. He continued to provide advice and inspiration on sustainability issues to a broad range of clients in his role as Counsel for International Business and Sustainability at Aird & Berlis LLP.
