Shambhala's new Director of Finance

May 30, 2012

We are very pleased to announce Mr Tim Watkins as Shambhala's new Director of Finance, succeeding Ms Vittoria De Palma.

Tim joined the Shambhala community in Toronto, where he served as treasurer of the centre for four years, before moving to Halifax in 2007. He brings more than 20 years of financial management experience, in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, to the role of Director of Finance.

Most recently, Tim served the Shambhala community as a consultant in the Office of Finance and Development by consolidating financial statements from centres and groups across North America and by implementing a new donation management system.

Tim is thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the community in this vital role and invites the community to come and say hello.

Vicky De Palma, the retiring Director, has had to move Montreal to attend to family issues and will be leaving Shambhala as of 1 June. During her two years of service she developed a great deal of infrastructure and performed her work with delightful enthusiasm, intelligence and creativity. She will be greatly missed.
