Paula Rees is the Vice President of Operations, where she is charged with managing all aspects of the company’s day-to-day operations and human resources. Her tenure dates back to 1991, when she joined Michael Saunders & Company’s executive offices in administration and operations. Throughout the years, she worked her way through various positions in the company, eventually stepping in as Human Resources Director before transitioning to her current role.

Paula interacts with nearly every aspect of the business. This has included facilities management and space planning, handling extensive office renovations, as well as the planning and opening of new offices. She works closely with the Controller and Accounting Team on budgeting; as well as reviewing legal agreements, handling legal issues, and managing the hundreds of vendor relationships within the company. Paula also oversees the human resources activities —including personnel management and benefits administration.

Prior to joining Michael Saunders & Company, Paula was the manager in charge of Canadian operations for The Learning Annex, North America’s leading source for adult education and self-help courses.
