Senior vice-president, human resources

Home Trust Company

Passionate about people and the power of employee engagement, Amy Bruyea-Cherny believes that “a diverse and empowered workforce is more innovative, inspired and ultimately more creative in driving corporate strategy and business results.” Before joining Home Trust in 2017, Bruyea-Cherny was the senior vice-president of operations at Paradigm Quest, where she led underwriting and servicing teams across Canada. She credits her success to the network of powerful and supportive industry leaders she has surrounded herself with throughout career.

“Amy has been a leader in the cultural transformation of [Home Trust], which has been key to the company’s HR strategy in finding and retaining talent,” a colleague says. “She is a respected senior leader who acts as a trusted advisor to the board and is a sought-after advisor and mentor to many of her executive colleagues. She is a champion for female equality in the workplace.”
