Pilon School of Business Candidate Profiles

Peggy Barnwell

I’ve been a faculty member at Sheridan College for over 25 years, beginning my career in a part-time, partial load capacity before joining the Pilon School of Business full time 18 years ago. My governance activities at Sheridan began as a voting member for PSB’s newly established Local Academic Council, along with a two-year term as a voting member of Sheridan’s Senate during its infancy. My initial term ended in June 2014 so I could embark on a year-long sabbatical to further my graduate studies. I am currently filling a one-year seat vacancy for the 2019- 2020 academic year and would be honoured to continue working for you on Sheridan’s Senate for the next three years.

Why elect me? I’m passionate about the student journey. Besides my work in the classroom, I have enjoyed years of coaching student competitions and introduced initiatives into to the Advertising Program that enhanced student engagement at Sheridan. I’m passionate about our programming. I have had the opportunity to expand the Advertising cirriculuum from a 4-semester offering to a 6-semester Advanced Diploma, and introduced a post graduate certificate in Advertising Account Management. Above all, I’m passionate about Sheridan, its future, and its commitment to student success, community partnerships, and the enhancement of creativity.

As faculty, we are fortunate to have an opportunity to bring our voice to the table and contribute to Sheridan’s initiatives. Please allow me to continue being one of our voices.

Bamadev Paudel

My name is Bamadev Paudel and many also know me by the name Dave. I have been with Sheridan College since 2014, in part-time role in earlier years and now as a full-time Professor of Economics beginning January 2019. I am also a member of Research and Partnerships Sub-Committee of Local Academic Council in PSB for nearly three years now.

I graduated with my PhD degree in International Finance from Wayne State University (US) in 2011. After graduation, I was involved in some research projects at University of Toronto for about one and half year, followed by teaching at Laurentian University in Sudbury and Catholic University of Korea in South Korea. Earlier, I worked for the central bank of Nepal for about nine years and directly involved in macroeconomic policy-making. I have also published articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented in international conferences. I have also an experience of volunteering in a peer-reviewed journal in the role of editor and a director in a charitable organization. It is also my pleasure to share you that I won a number of awards during my study, including a gold medal by then king of Nepal for securing first position in the Bachelor’s degree in Economics.

I am running for this position to represent your voice in Senate which sets academic policies that directly affect us, our learners, and the community. I assure you that I am committed for it.

I appreciate your consideration to vote for me!

Sujaykumar Vardhmane

My name is Sujaykumar Vardhmane, and I joined Pilon School of Business as a full time Professor for Human Resources on Jan 2, 2020. I currently teach Human Resources Administration - Graduate Certificate, and Employment Law and Diversity – Diploma level. Prior to joining PSB, I worked in the field of Human Resources (Scotiabank, Mazrui Holding, Boots Pharmaceutical, ALCAN) and taught a wide range of Human Resources courses ( Human Resources Management, Recruitment & Selection, Training & Development, Compensation Management, Organizational Behaviour, Occupational Health & Safety, Industrial Relations, Human Resources Planning) at diploma, advanced diploma, graduate certificate, undergraduate and graduate levels at University of Toronto, Ryerson – Chang School of Business, George Brown College, Seneca College and Centennial College.

The past two and a half months at Sheridan College have been a great learning experience. I am thankful to all of you for making it a welcoming place and providing me with the necessary help and guidance. I have had the opportunity to attend as a guest at Local Academic Council (LAC) meetings and was able to learn more about the investment that Sheridan College places on student centred purposeful educational experiences. I am new and have a lot to learn about Sheridan College; and I believe that by joining the Senate my learning with be holistic, macro and strategic. The hope is that my passion, commitment, knowledge and experience will add value and perspective to the discussions and insights at the Senate meetings and help shape the academic direction and academic policies of the college.
