New MFRC Executive Director

Farewell to Karen Bruce who has graciously taken time from her consulting firm to assume the duties as our Executive Director on two occasions; from December 2011 to July 2012, and December 2014 to October 2016. She has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and her management expertise have transformed our MFRC to be one of the best in Canada. On behalf of the Board, the staff and the military families, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your distinguished service and wish you and John the very best in your quest to achieve all the remaining items on your ‘bucket list’. Happy trails!

Welcome to Gordon Young who has joined the Calgary MFRC team as our new Executive Director effective October 17. Besides his academic credentials, MSc in Social Administration, Gord has considerable experience as an Executive Director in the non-profit sector, specializing in the health and mental wellness. This is a perfect fit given our strategic priorities in the foreseeable future. Gord has an extensive network and is well know in the Calgary community. Please feel free to drop by his office to extend a warm welcome.

- Charles Hamel, Chair of the Board
