The Town of Parry Sound has a new Director of Finance and Treasurer. Her name is Stephanie Phillips.

Phillips is a Chartered Professional Accountant and has a BBA (Honours) specializing in accounting from Nipissing University.

“On behalf of Council, I’m very pleased to welcome Stephanie Phillips as our Director of Finance,” said Mayor McGarvey. “Mrs. Phillips brings over ten years’ experience in both the private and public sectors; with each move, she has assumed more senior roles and expanded her experience. We look forward to her joining the Senior Leadership Team and utilizing these skills to full capacity here at the Town.”
