Administrative history

Organized in the wake of the Loyola College and Sir George Williams University merger in September 1974, the Office of the Treasurer of Concordia University assumed the responsibilities for general accounting, accounts payable, accounts receivable (Student Accounts), payroll, insurance, and operating budget. However, for some years, controlling of the capital budget was the responsibility of the University physical resources management area.

The main premises of the Office of the Treasurer have been on the Sir George Williams (SGW) campus but there was also an office mainly for Student Accounts on the Loyola campus until 1992.

Between 1974 and 1995, the Office of the Treasurer was under the direction of the Assistant Vice-Rector and Treasurer who was part of the portfolio of the Vice-Rector Administration and Finance until 1985 and then under the Vice-Rector Institutional Relations and Finance. In November 1995, part of a reorganization of the senior administration, the position of Vice-Rector Institutional Relations and Finance was split in two, creating the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO), reporting directly to the Rector, in order that the CFO could be charged exclusively with the management of the University’s financial affairs. With this administrative reorganization, the Office of the Treasurer was renamed Financial Services. Payroll was also moved under Human Resources at the same period.

In 1974, the first Assistant Vice-Rector and Treasurer was William (Bill) M. Reay – who had been before the merger, the Treasurer of Sir George Williams University. He stayed in office at Concordia until the end of 1981. He was followed by Wilfred (Fred) G. McManus until August 1988. Jean-Paul Lauly was then the Concordia Treasurer until the arrival of the first University Chief Financial Officer, Larry English, in July 1996.
