The Government of Saskatchewan has appointed Pam Klein and Cathy Warner as order-in-council representatives to the University of Regina’s Board of Governors for a three-year term.

“I welcome our newest members to the Board of Governors," said Board Chair Paul McLellan. "They are joining a strong team and I look forward to working together with them to move the University of Regina forward.”

Klein is President of the Phoenix Group, Saskatchewan's leading and award-winning advertising agency, where she delivers insight and communications strategies to help businesses solve challenges. She leads her talented team by example: striving for excellence, creating a rewarding work environment, and giving back to the community. A graduate of the University of Regina, she earned a Master of Education from the University of Manitoba.

Warner has been with Deloitte for 24 years and is responsible for Deloitte’s practice in Regina. She has previously served as the director of audit and assurance services for Saskatchewan and is currently responsible for the firm’s service levels to a number of key clients in the province, leading numerous initiatives. Warner obtained her bachelor of commerce with distinction in 1988 from the University of Saskatchewan. She received her chartered accountant designation and became a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Saskatchewan in 1990. In 2010, she was awarded her fellow chartered accountant designation. 

"Ms. Klein and Ms. Warner are well-respected leaders in the provincial community whose commitment to education and knowledge of administrative best practices will serve our University well," said Dr. Vianne Timmons, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Regina.  "They are a strong complement to the existing members of our Board of Governors, and will play an important role in the coming years to help fulfill our shared academic mission."

The Board of Governors oversees the administration and business affairs of the University. It has ultimate authority over the raising and spending of University funds, and over the acquisition and management of the University property. It also appoints the president of the University.
