The Greater Sudbury Development Corporation continues to support local economic development with the recruitment of six new members to its 18-member board of directors.
The board elected Andree Lacroix, a partner with Lacroix Lawyers, to serve as chair for a second term. Peter Nykilchuk, GM of Hampton Inn by Hilton and Homewood Suites by Hilton, will serve as first vice-chair; and Jeff Portelance, capital sales manager with Marcotte Mining Machinery Services, as second vice-chair.
“Our board of directors represents a variety of sectors, both public and private, but we all serve a common goal, which is to support economic recovery and continued growth in our community,” said Lacroix in a release.
The appointment of new board members followed a city-wide call for applications. They include Jennifer Abols, ED of the Goodman School of Mines; Robert Hache, president and vice-chancellor of Laurentian University; Anthony Lawley, president and founding partner of the IVEY Group; Mike Mayhew, founding partner of Mayhew Performance; Claire Parkinson, head of operational services for Vale’s North Atlantic operations; and Shawn Poland, associate VP of strategic enrolment and college advancement at Cambrian College.
“As mayor and as a member of the GSDC board of directors, I am excited to see new members coming on board for the benefit of the community and to help fulfill the economic development goals of our city,” Mayor Brian Bigger said in a release.
The GSDC extends appreciation to members who have completed their three-year term, including Brent Battistelli, Iyo Grenon, Marett McCulloch, Daran Moxam and Brian Valliancourt.
