Gillian is the CEO of Henry’s, an iconic Canadian brand and the country’s largest independent camera retailer. Since taking over as CEO in 2015, she has helped transform the traditional retailer into an omni-channel specialty business and oversaw a successful restructuring process while navigating the pandemic. In an effort to destigmatize mental health in the business community, Gillian became the first Canadian CEO to publicly announce a personal mental illness diagnosis in 2021. She was named one of Canada’s Top 25 Women of Influence in 2022.
