Pallium Canada Appoints Jeffrey Moat as Chief Executive Officer


Keynote Search, a company that helps organizations with business-critical hiring needs, announced today that Jeffrey Moat was selected by the Pallium Canada Board of Directors as their new Chief Executive Officer. Moat steps into the newly formed CEO role.

Jeff was most recently President of Partners for Mental Health (PFMH), a charitable organization renowned for its exceptional work in the mental health sector. Their programs, ‘Not Myself Today©’ and ‘Right By You’ gained critical acclaim and more than 400,000 Canadians directly benefited from the programs. Moat said of his time at PFMH, “We catalyzed more than 1 million actions by our supporters: from making mental health part of the conversation at work and at home, to changing people’s mindsets and understanding about mental illness, we have a lot to be proud of.” As Jeff steps into Pallium he remarked, “I’m excited by the opportunity Pallium has to positively impact the end of life journey for every Canadian. It is my privilege to lead the team at Pallium and work with partners and stakeholders on an issue that touches every one of us.”

It is my privilege to lead the team at Pallium and work with partners and stakeholders on an issue that touches every one of us.
