Guest Alumnus – Stefan Leslie
Stefan Leslie, BA(Hons)’96 is no stranger to tackling tsunami-sized issues. With a career that has spanned the globe, working primarily in the oceans and fisheries sector, Stefan took on his latest challenge in 2019 when he became the CEO of the newly-formed Research Nova Scotia (RNS). A past FYP student, Stefan often hires King’s graduates and people with a background in the humanities.
“I have hired a good number of those with a humanities background–people who studied comparative religion, archivists, medieval literature specialists—all manner of folks who have those interests. I didn’t hire them for their specialized knowledge in that field, but because there is a certain quality to those individuals. I like the way they think, and perhaps we share an approach that helps us tackle those large size issues.”
