The Yukon government has announced that Katherine White will take over as deputy minister for the Department of Finance on Sept. 8.

White will replace acting deputy minister Mark Tubman.

“Ms. White brings a wealth of advanced strategic leadership skills in the public sector to her new position with the Yukon government,” Premier Darrell Pasloski said in a news release.

White has previously served as the assistant deputy minister, chief economist, and executive director of the Alberta Treasury Board and Department of Finance. She has also served as the president and vice-president of the Economics Society of Northern Alberta. She holds a master of arts in Economics from the University of Calgary.

This is the second time this year the position of deputy finance minister has changed hands.

Tubman has held the position since Stephen LeClair left it in February 2015 to take up new responsibilities as Ontario’s first financial accountability officer. LeClair had been deputy minister since August 2014, when he replaced David Hrycan, who’d held the position since 2007.
