I am pleased to announce that Michelle (Miao) Zhu will be joining the Financial Services Unit within the Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch (PDSB) as the Financial Officer for the Milton and Belleville sites effective September 8, 2020. Michelle was the successful candidate in the competition for the Financial Officer position, which closed on June 22, 2020. Her temporary assignment is for a period of six months. Michelle comes from the Ministry of Transportation where she supported the ministry’s transformation initiatives by working with senior staff in the Corporate Finance Branch in the area of financial management. Prior to joining the Ontario Public Service Michelle has four years of experience in project accounting, where she was responsible for preparing monthly financial reporting, expenditure control, financial statement analysis, and assisting financial managers for financial planning.
