Paige Pan

Role: Director of Finance

What do you do at our company?

I am overseeing the finance department at Eddy, from day-to-day accounting transactions to financial reporting.

Where did you grow up, and what were you like as a kid?

I was born and grew up in Nanjing, the capital of China’s eastern Jiangsu province; it is located roughly 300km up the Yangtze River from the city of Shanghai.

What career path did you almost take?

I was a teacher in China. I worked for ten years in a vocational school before coming to Canada. If I didn’t come to Canada, I would be a teacher for my life.

What food or drink is always at your desk?

Chinese snacks and green tea.

What’s your productivity hack?

A to-do list and managing time effectively.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I balanced work, family, and study; I completed Honours Bachelor Commerce at Laurentian, and received my CGA, CPA designation at 47 years old.

Morning person or night owl?

I am definitely a morning person. If I don’t wake up at 6 AM, my dog will come to my room to wake me up.

Your non-negotiables for life?

Honesty, loyalty and strong ethics.

What has been your favourite project so far?

When I worked at a solar management company, I managed four sets of books for solar projects in Ontario for Blackrock.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I like to try new things: different food, travelling to new places.
