Welcome to Women On Board® Source
I’d like to welcome you to the third edition of Women On Board® Source, an online resource
featuring the women corporate director candidates who are part of Women On Board®, a Catalyst
initiative, which combines the power of mentorship and sponsorship to promote the appointment
of women to corporate boards.
The 76 highly accomplished executive women listed in Women On Board® Source are exceptional
candidates for boards. They have been selected to join Women On Board® and given what they
need most—a sponsor—someone who provides strategic advice, helps them build their board
networks, and champions their board candidacy.
Catalyst offers Women On Board® Source to Canadian corporate boards as a solution to the
increasing demand for diversity in the boardroom. As more companies recognize the competitive
advantage of gender diversity in the boardroom in terms of its impact on decision making,
boardroom dynamics, and the bottom line, they are beginning to set goals and targets to ensure
that more women directors are appointed.
In fact, a number of companies are making their goals public by signing the Catalyst Accord, a call
to action to FP500 companies to appoint women to their boards and to contribute to increasing
the overall percentage of women directors at all FP500 companies to 25 percent by 2017. We can
accomplish this if each FP500 company adds just one woman to its board.
To that end, I hope Women On Board® Source is a valuable resource that will help you find the
highly skilled women directors you are seeking, and I strongly encourage you to contact us for
assistance and for more information on any of the women profiled here.
Sincerely,
Alex Johnston
Executive Director
Catalyst Canada
Welcome
Bienvenue au répertoire Source de Women On Board®
J’ai le plaisir de vous souhaiter la bienvenue à la troisième édition du répertoire Source de Women
on Board®, une ressource en ligne qui vous présente les candidates au poste d’administratrice
d’entreprises qui font partie de Women on Board®, une initiative Catalyst, qui associe la puissance
du mentorat à celle du parrainage pour promouvoir la nomination de femmes aux conseils
d’administration.
Les 76 cadres dirigeantes les plus accomplies figurant dans le répertoire Source de Women
on Board® sont d’exceptionnelles candidates pour tout conseil d’administration. Elles ont été
sélectionnées pour rejoindre Women on Board® et obtenir ce dont elles ont le plus besoin – un
parrain – quelqu’un qui leur fournit des conseils stratégiques, qui leur facilite la création de leurs
réseaux d’administrateurs, et qui soutient leur candidature aux conseils.
Catalyst présente le répertoire Source de Women on Board® aux conseils des entreprises
canadiennes comme étant une solution à la demande croissante convoitant la diversité au sein
des conseils d’administration. Étant donné le nombre de plus en plus important d’entreprises qui
reconnaissent l’avantage concurrentiel de la mixité au sein de leurs conseils – en termes de son
influence sur la prise de décision, sur la dynamique de ces conseils et sur les résultats financiers –
ces entreprises commencent à se fixer des objectifs ciblant la nomination d’un plus grand nombre
d’administratrices.
En fait, il convient de remarquer que plusieurs entreprises ajoutent dorénavant la signature de
l’Accord Catalyst à leur liste d’objectifs annoncés; cet Accord lance un appel à l’action envers
les entreprises FP500 afin de nommer des femmes à leur conseils d’administration et afin de
contribuer à l’augmentation du pourcentage de cadres dirigeantes au sein de toutes les entreprises
FP500 pour qu’il atteigne 25 pour cent en 2017. Cet objectif nous est possible si une seule femme
est nommée au conseil d’administration de chaque entreprise FP500.
Pour aboutir à cette fin, j’espère bien que le répertoire Source de Women on Board® deviendra une
ressource précieuse qui vous aidera à identifier les cadres dirigeantes hautement qualifiées que
vous recherchez. Je vous encourage vivement à communiquer avec nous pour obtenir de l’aide et
davantage de renseignements sur chacune des femmes présentées dans ce répertoire.
Sincèrement,
Alex Johnston

Biography
Over 25 years consulted to hundreds of companies
in Canada and the United States on executive
compensation. Assisted companies with attraction
and retention challenges relating to periods of
intense competition due to robust economic
growth, with challenges relating to prolonged and
intense economic downturns, and with challenges
faced in normal circumstances.
Towers Watson (formerly Towers Perrin), 1995
to 2014
• Managing Director, Executive Compensation –
Canadian Division
• Managing Partner, National Executive
Compensation and Rewards Practice
• National Leader, Executive Compensation
Practice
• Principal
Assisted two large energy companies through
merger integration—to select the best, and
in some cases entirely new, aspects of their
compensation philosophy and programs, in
order to retain talent and reinforce the new
organization’s business strategy.
Worked with a large energy company as it split
itself into two, helping to determine when “clone
and go” was effici t, and when different policies
were needed to align with its new business
strategy. Issues also included appropriate levels of
director compensation.
Helped Board of a pre-production mining
company to change its compensation philosophy
and increase its governance over executive
compensation as it entered production and needed
to address greater shareholder scrutiny, and
reduced levels of acceptable dilution.
Throughout career have managed and grown
consultancies in the United States and Canada
to be market-leading, well respected, and
profitable, providing clients with sound advice
and the professionals with rewarding careers.
Successfully achieved two turnarounds where
new leadership needed to be developed and
financial performance significantly improved.
As a corporate and commercial lender (portfolio
of large and medium-sized businesses) at Bank of
Montreal, helped grow market share, while learning
banking fundamentals and interest rates reached
20% and a severe recession followed.

Accomplishments cont’d
As Executive Vice President, Network Development
at Shoppers Drug Mart (SDM), developed national
real estate strategy to deliver on long-term
aggressive growth and provided Real Estate
department with strategic road map to deliver on
growth targets.
While VP, Operations, BC Division for Shoppers,
orchestrated financial tu naround of region
and within two years strategically changed
operations. Led team to exceed profitabili y
goals for fi e consecutive years and rank first i
Canada in metrics such as market share growth
and productivity. Increased store count by 40%
(30 new franchised stores) within three years, with
acquisitions of available pharmacy businesses and
new store construction. Doubled industry standard
for prescription market growth rate by working
with franchise owners, focusing their efforts on
optimizing customer-service-related standards.
Managed difficult ansition through company
sale/acquisition; achieved downsizing targets in
developing an IPO.
Ramped up real estate program during fi e-year
period with compounding growth of 10% until
2010 and, following that, delivered on 3-4% growth
per year. This involved building and opening over
1 million selling square feet per year, restructuring
and downsizing group while still delivering on
growth targets, defining new p ocess, adding new
facilitating position, improving intra-departmental
communication and timing, and driving solutions
with incentives. Now the company is positioned to
satisfy corporate growth requirements until 2016.
Doing the above turned around the capital plan so
that sales generated by store openings delivered
significa tly more sales than planned. Evened
out capital activity through the quarters, which
positioned SDM to capitalize on maximizing sales
opportunity and completely focus on operations
for the fourth quarter.
Developed a land bank program within SDM in
2007 which allowed the company to pick ideal
timing for store openings, to build the stores
and reap the substantial financial benefits
disposition based on the value of SDM’s covenant.
Delivered significa t savings since 2006 through
lease administration cost-saving measures such
as reduced rent carry, renegotiating leases,
and conducting CAM audits together with the
disposition of owned properties. Also worked with
leasing group and landlords to develop medical
clinics in conjunction with capital activity which
delivered 45-50 clinics per year.

En qualité de vice-présidente exécutive,
Développement commercial pour Shoppers
À titre de vice-présidente, Opérations, division de
la Colombie-Britannique de SDM, Mme Paananen
a orchestré le revirement financier de la divisio
, transformant stratégiquement les opérations,
en deux ans. Sous son leadership, l’équipe su
dépasser les objectifs prévus pendant cinq
années consécutives, SDM s’étant positionnée au
premier rang au Canada, quant à la croissance
de la part du marché et le rendement. Sous sa
gouverne, le nombre de magasins a augmenté
de 40 % (30 nouveaux magasins franchisés) sur
une période de trois ans, grâce à l’acquisition
d’entreprises pharmaceutiques et la construction
de nouveaux magasins. En collaborant avec les
franchisés, concentrant leurs efforts communs
sur l’optimisation des normes du service à la
clientèle, elle a fait en sorte que les normes de
l’industrie pour le taux de croissance du marché
des médicaments d’ordonnance doublent. Elle
a su opéré une difficile ansition par le biais de
ventes et acquisitions de sociétés, et a atteint les
objectifs de rationalisation, en lançant appel public
à l’épargne.
Drug Mart (SDM), elle a élaboré, pour le secteur de
l’immobilier, une stratégie nationale visant une
croissance à long terme ambitieuse, ainsi qu’un
plan stratégique pour l’atteinte des objectifs.
En cinq ans, elle a fait en sorte que le programme
immobilier atteigne un taux de croissance composé
de 10 % jusqu’en 2010, et par la suite, un taux de
croissance annuel de 3-4 %. Ceci a nécessité la
construction et l’ouverture de surfaces de vente
de plus d’un million de pieds carrés par année, la
restructuration et la rationalisation du groupe, tout
en poursuivant les objectifs de croissance. Il a fallu
définir de nou eaux processus, créer un poste de
facilitateur, améliorer la communication interne et
les échéanciers, et élaborer des solutions incitatives.
La société a atteint, aujourd’hui, les objectifs de
croissance prévus pour 2016.
Il en a résulté une transformation du plan
d’immobilisations, les ouvertures de magasins
ayant produit des ventes bien supérieures à ce qui
était prévu. Mme Paananen a réussi à équilibrer
les activités d’investissement en immobilisations,
de trimestre en trimestre, ceci permettant à
SDM d’optimiser les occasions de vente et de se
consacrer entièrement à l’exploitation, pendant le
quatrième trimestre.
En 2007, elle a conçu un programme de réserve
foncière au sein de SDM, en vertu duquel la
société est en mesure de choisir le moment idéal
pour l’ouverture et la construction de nouveaux
magasins, et ainsi de réaliser des profits substa tiels
au moment de la vente, en fonction de la valeur de
notre engagement. Mme Paananen a permis à la
société de réaliser d’importantes économies depuis
2006, grâce à la réduction des coûts de gestion des
baux, et à la vente de propriétés. En collaboration
avec un groupe de crédit-bail et des propriétaires
immobiliers, elle a participé au développement de
45-50 cliniques médicales par année, grâce à des
activités d’investissement.
