New Alumni Association President Announced
Bayview Glen Alumni Association announced Chris Yeretsian '08 as its new President. Mr. Yeretsian will serve as the third president of the association.
“On behalf of the entire Bayview Glen Alumni Board of Directors, we are pleased and excited to have the opportunity to further our mission and good work by serving with someone of Chris’ professional caliber and character,” said John Huang '03, Past President of BVGAA. “We expect Chris will have a positive and immediate impact to enhance alumni relations and strengthen our community.”
Chris is a securities lawyer at the firm of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP. His practice focusses on advising clients in a wide variety of capital markets transactions, including public offerings and private placements of securities, mergers and acquisitions, and financings. Chris also advises clients on matters related to corporate governance and securities regulation, continuous disclosure, and shareholder activism. Chris was admitted to the Ontario Bar in 2016. He holds a J.D. from the University of Toronto and H.B.A. from the Ivey Business School at Western University.
Chris’ near-term vision for the Alumni Association is to significantly enhance alumni engagement by further developing and promoting the recently launched mentorship and networking programme, BVG L!NK. Chris believes that the opportunity to become a mentor or mentee through BVG L!NK provides great incentives to both new and more established alumni, including network expansion and leading to professional and personal opportunities. It is Chris’ hope that promoting the BVG L!NK programme will allow alumni, parents and friends of the School to connect and engage with each other and the community on a meaningful level.
