Javier Schwersensky says he has the best job in the world. As CEO of the Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS), Javier leads Manitoba’s oldest animal shelter and animal welfare non-profit that has served our community for 126 years.
Originally from Argentina, Javier has a wonderful success story in Canada, and has been giving back by working in Canada’s charitable sector.
I sat down with Javier to talk about the WHS, their devotion to animals, humble beginnings in Argentina, and how the WHS is looking forward in a post-COVID-19 world.
This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Javier.
