Paul Alofs is stepping down as President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation (The PMCF) after more than a decade at the helm and net fundraising revenue surpassing $1 billion.

The announcement was made by Glenn Ives, Chair of the Board of The PMCF, who added that Paul will remain in the position until April 2018, ensuring time for a thorough search for a successor and continuity with donors, staff, volunteers and the cancer team.

“The Board is very grateful for the wonderful leadership Paul has provided to The Foundation and his very significant personal contribution to conquering cancer in our lifetime,” Glenn said in a news release, which also thanked Paul for agreeing to stay on to ensure “a smooth transition” to a new President and CEO – “a passing of the torch which will allow us to continue the fundraising momentum.”

Dr. Peter Pisters, UHN President and CEO, lauded The PMCF under Paul for “an amazing contribution” to cancer research, patient care innovation and patients at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
