BURNABY, BC– July 13, 2015 — The Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS), a non-profit society dedicated to advocating for the interests of undergraduate students at Simon Fraser University, has named Martin Wyant as its new Executive Director.

Wyant joins the SFSS following his successful tenure as Chief Executive Officer at SHARE Family & Community Services, a non-profit organisation dedicated to social needs of the Tri-Cities communities. Wyant’s career also includes time leading a variety of youth-serving, non-profit organizations, private sector business leadership and community-based economic development.

“We are very privileged to have Martin join our team,” said Enoch Weng, the SFSS president. “Martin brings a good combination of experience and leadership, along with an excellent managerial and community-building track record,” added Weng.
