Robyn Paches VP Operations and Finance

As your Vice President Operations and Finance, Robyn has been elected by students to steer the direction of the Students’ Unions businesses and finances. His plans include working hard to collaborate with students, ensuring that businesses like RATT, Dewey’s and SUBPrint are serving real student needs right now, and in the future. Not limited only to the business side of the SU, Robyn also plans to advocate for student needs in safety and student financial aid.

Last year, he completed his undergrad in Business, receiving his Bachelor of Commerce with a focus in Operations Management. However, Robyn’s time in school was much more then only courses. . He served as the External Relations Director in his Faculty Association, the Business Students’ Association. Robyn also helped organize a case competition and led the University of Alberta Ski & Snowboard Club in his fourth year. Time in this diverse set of organizations prepared Robyn for his most recent experience, as an elected member of Students Council. Serving the students of the business faculty as their councillor in the 2015/16 term, Robyn sat on the Finance and Audit standing committees of council. Through these committees he not only learned the SU’s budget inside and out, but also the ethical manner in which to spend it.

Robyn is passionate about ensuring that student’s needs are not only recognized, but also met by the organization that represents them. He is excited to work with this year’s executive team to ensure all aspects of the SU meet real student needs.
