Hanna Goschy, the Anglican Church of Canada’s treasurer and chief financial officer since 2013, has announced her retirement effective Aug. 13.

“I am deeply grateful for Hanna’s unstinting support of General Synod and of our dioceses and ministries,” Archbishop Linda Nicholls, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, wrote in an email to staff May 14. Nicholls described Goschy as a “take-charge treasurer” who, among other accomplishments, established “a more holistic and transparent budgeting process.”

Goschy first came to Church House in 2011 as controller. She had previously served employers including Manulife Financial, Transamerica Life Canada and, most recently, YMCA Canada, where she had been chief financial officer since 2000. She succeeded Michèle George as the church’s treasurer and chief financial officer.
