TIFF announces appointment of Marsha John-Greenwood as Vice-President, People & Culture

TIFF CEO Cameron Bailey announced today that human resources executive Marsha John-Greenwood has been appointed to the new role of Vice-President, People & Culture as part of TIFF’s executive team. Marsha joins TIFF on Monday, September 26, 2022.

“With over 18 years of experience in the HR field, Marsha is a wonderful addition to our exceptional Senior Management team,” offered Bailey. “Marsha has worked with a number of organizations from the public, private, and charity sectors and brings with her a focus on optimizing people services, new ways of working, the implementation of diversity programs, and enabling technology.”

Marsha comes to TIFF from the City of Toronto, where she held the positions of Chief People Officer (interim), Service Hub Director, and Business Transformation Director. Marsha started her career in training and development in the financial sector, working in retail and commercial banking before becoming a diversity and CSR lead. In that role, she integrated both business and people practices, and through her work improved employee engagement scores, as well as reporting and accountability metrics, and carried out a research project that resulted in developing the housing sector’s first supplier diversity approach.

As part of the Senior Management team, Marsha will oversee the People & Culture components of TIFF’s latest three-year strategic plan and goals: to grow the organization’s year-round engagement with audiences and the industry; to curate exceptional experiences at TIFF Bell Lightbox, establishing it as a landmark cultural hub in Canada celebrating Canadian and global film; to expand its role in international markets through innovative and meaningful offerings and experiences; to build a thriving organization by inspiring and engaging its talented staff; and to foster and embody an organizational culture that is collaborative, diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
