Leslie Cliff Named an Honorary CA

VANCOUVER - Leslie Cliff has been presented with an Honorary CA Award by the Chartered Accountants of British Columbia. The Honorary CA designation is given to non-CAs who've provided outstanding service to the CA profession on behalf of the community.
Cliff, who is the president of Genus Capital Management in Vancouver, served as a public representative on the Chartered Accountants of BC's governing council from 1995 to 2000.

No stranger to awards, Cliff has won numerous medals for swimming, including an Olympic Silver medal in the 400 Individual Medley at the 1972 Olympic Games. In 1971, Cliff was awarded the Officer of the order of Canada for having won three Gold and two Silver medals at the Pan American Games. She was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 1976, the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 1984, and the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame in 1997.
Cliff's commitment to excellence extends to her career in business as well. She co-founded Genus Capital Management in 1989. In 2000, she was recognized with a PEAK (Performance, Excellence, Achievement, Knowledge) Lifetime Achievement Award by the Association of Women in Finance.
Cliff is also no stranger to the CA profession, as her father Ron Cliff is a Chartered Accountant. This year, the CAs of BC presented him with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Cliff will be unable to accept her award in person at the CA award ceremony in June, as she'll be in New Mexico celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary.

The 8,300 CAs in BC provide expert advice to a variety of small and large business; are key members of management teams; or consult to private industry and the public sector. As members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia, they adhere to a strictly enforced code of conduct and ongoing professional development.
