Annette Verschuren learned the basics of inventory and money management growing up on the family dairy farm in North Sydney. Now, she's not just one of the most capable business leaders in the country, she's also the kind of leader that OTHER leaders look to for advice.
Annette Verschuren is president of Home Depot Canada, which employs 27-thousand people. She's also in charge of Home Depot's expansion into China. Last year, she became one of eleven people appointed to the federal finance minister's advisory council on the global economic crisis. Ms. Verschuren is also the chancellor of Cape Breton University. She was in Sydney last month to attend fall convocation.
Steve Sutherland had a chance to sit down with her at CBU.
