Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada
Photo credit The 2013 Couchiching Award for Public Policy Leadership has been awarded to Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of Canada. The award celebrates his singular leadership in Canadian public policy as exemplified by his extraordinary ability to have steered Canada safely through the recent recession. He is, as Glen Hodgson of the Conference Board has called him, one of the "heroes of the recession." George Osborne has hailed him as "the outstanding central banker of his generation."
Mark Carney was born in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, and holds a BA in economics from Harvard, and a master’s and doctorate in economics from Oxford University. He spent 13 years with Goldman Sachs in its Tokyo, London, and New York offices and has held positions as the Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada and the Senior Associate Deputy Minister of Finance in Ottawa. As of July 1, Mr. Carney will become Governor of the Bank of England.
