Moji OgunsanyaJoe Bodego
Chief Financial Officer
Growing up in Nigeria, Moji was exposed to the trials and sufferings of people living with Sickle Cell Anemia, yet she did not foresee the need to have herself tested until she was pregnant with her first son. An innocent question from her doctor about her sickle cell status had her scrambling, and in a panic, she got a blood test and realized she had the sickle cell trait but fortunately her husband did not, thus eliminating the risk of having a child with Sickle Cell Anemia. This was an eye-opener that fostered her desire to make a difference leading her to SCAGO in 2008.
Moji has over 20 years of leadership experience in investment finance, corporate accounting, audit, and financial services. She is currently a Director in the Investment Operations group of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments). Prior to joining CPP Investments, she spent 6 years as a Controller at Lumira Capital Corp., a Private Equity company. Moji started her career with KPMG where she completed her accounting articles and has held senior finance roles in various organizations. She holds a B.Sc. (Hons) in Accounting and is also a Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) in Canada and Nigeria as well as a Certified Management Accountant (CMA) in the United States.
Moji Ogunsanya joined the board of SCAGO in May 2014 and currently serves as its Treasurer. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, Moji immigrated to Canada in February 2000 and has lived in Victoria, BC, Vancouver, and Toronto. She now calls Newmarket home, where she resides with her husband and 3 children.
