SILOAM MISSION NAMES NEW CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Siloam Mission announced that Floyd Perras has been named the Chief Executive Officer. Perras was hired through Siloam’s Board of Directors. The new executive appointment is effective March 1, 2010.
As a national business leader, Perras comes to Siloam Mission with over 20 years of experience in missions and humanitarian agencies in Canada.
“Perras is a proven leader who brings extensive training and experience to Siloam Mission,” says Board Chair, Riley Coulter. “He will lead Siloam with integrity and effectiveness, but most importantly, he will fulfill the mandate to help those who are experiencing poverty and homelessness in Winnipeg.”
"I am thrilled by the opportunity to work alongside all those at Siloam Mission,” says Perras. “I have followed Siloam since its small beginnings on Main Street, spending time as a volunteer and then, for a time, on the Board of Directors. Siloam has always had a place in my heart and I will lead to my full capacity as it continues to grow and advance the programs and services offered. We will work to strengthen Siloam and bring forth my vision to make change happen in Winnipeg’s inner-city.”
Perras has earned an Executive Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Calgary and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Canadian Nazarene College. He is an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene.
