Neil Johnston joined Fraser Academy in 2019 as the Director of Advancement. Mr. Johnston spent the first decade of his career as a corporate lawyer with leading firms in the U.K. From 2006-2018, he worked in fundraising and leadership positions for Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity, a post-secondary institution specializing in the arts and leadership. Most recently, as Vice President, Development, Mr. Johnston led a team of 18 staff focused on private and public sector fundraising, and starting the Centre’s alumni program. Under his leadership, the team achieved the Centre’s greatest revenue results over a five year period.
Keen to have an impact in the formative stages of education, Mr. Johnston shares that he is “excited to partner with the Fraser Academy community to build the capacity and potential of the Advancement office and help ensure the best educational environment possible for students to thrive.”
Mr. Johnston and his wife have two kids. They are all happy to be living on the West Coast and look forward to exploring the mountains and coast, and perhaps adding a puppy to the family later this year!
