Champignon Appoints Dr Bill Wilkerson To Board Of Directors

Champignon Brands (CSE: SHRM) this morning continued its ongoing process of strengthening its board of directors with accomplished executives and thought leaders in the medical space with the appointment of Dr Bill Wilkerson, LL.D (Hon).

Dr Wilkerson is a highly accomplished executive in the areas of business, government, broadcasting, arts, and corporate crisis management. He has been an 8-time award-winner in workplace mental health, following an international initiative conducted from 1998 to 2012 to enforce the significance of mental health among major employers.

In terms of previous employment, Dr Wilkerson was previously President of Liberty Health, one of Canada’s largest benefits providers, and held executive roles at RBC, CBC, and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. As an adviser for mental health, his career has been just as impressive, having worked with the NHL, the CFL, the Hockey Hall of Fame, Toronto Blue Jays, TSN, CTV, and more.

"I am pleased to join the board of directors of Champignon to help deploy, at long last, treatments of depression that work, work fast, restore health, fuel hope, animate workplace productivity, and save lives. The mission of this company is fundamental and enduring; to meet a pressing public need. This is what my twenty-two years of advocacy for mental health in the workplace has been all about. This directorship also permits me to support and help facilitate the vision of the extraordinarily skilled and dedicated physician-scientist Dr. Roger McIntyre, a world leader in a field that cries out for his kind of resolve, courage, compassion, and knowledge. I am humbled by, and grateful for, the opportunity to serve."
