Biography

Scott McCreath and his BMO Nesbitt Burns group manage $1.2 billion of private client wealth.  He was Senior Vice President of Canadian Commercial Bank, and was Chairman of the Alberta Stock Exchange. He is a 17-time recipient of the Deane Nesbitt/Charles Burns Award, and in 2011 received the Brendan Wood TopGun designation as one of the world’s best financial services professionals.  He is active in community philanthropy, sits on the Dean’s Advisory Council, and is involved with Waskesiu.  He is an alumnus of our College of Commerce. 

Scott has a great history of giving generously of his time and contacts to the University of Saskatchewan, and his wife Grit (an alumnus of the College of Education) is a member of the University’s Board of Governors. Scott has been a fantastic supporter of the Dembroski Student-Managed Portfolio, and sits on its governance committee. 

Scott will be able to speak with great insight on the behavior of markets and of investors, the institutions of finance and public policy, and the keys to successful management of other people’s assets.  He is deeply committed to the success of the Edwards School of Business and wants his participation with us to add value to the School and enrich the lives of students.
