Brian Heidecker claims he’s retired, but it’s hard to know exactly when that started.
With a curriculum vitae that has thickened exponentially through his so-called “retirement years," the outgoing University of Alberta Board of Governors chair will take another crack at retirement, although he doesn’t hold up much hope that he’ll have much luck.
“My kids will say, ‘Dad, you spend more time at the university, working harder there than you did on the ranch, and you’re supposed to be retired,’” said Heidecker at his farewell board meeting held Oct. 21. “My answer is that I get to work with a lot of fabulous people and we get to achieve a lot.”
And achieve he did. Heidecker’s 11-and-a-half years on the board, the last five-and-a-half of which were spent as the board chair, will go down as one of the university’s greatest periods of growth. During the 2004–05 academic year, the U of A went over the $1 billion mark in revenues, and since 2000, more than $2.5 billion has been invested into the campus and more than three million square feet of space has been added.
