TIAC Names Charlotte Bell As New President and CEO
Industry Association of Canada's Board of Directors has announced the
appointment of Charlotte Bell as President & CEO.
“With more than 25
years of experience in regulatory, corporate and government affairs, Charlotte
is a seasoned executive bringing a wealth of experience and proven track record
of success leading regulatory change in the broadcast sector," said TIAC Board chair
“As an experienced
advisor and advocate, Charlotte spearheaded regulatory and public affairs
strategies leading to successful acquisitions of major media properties and was
pivotal in obtaining policy and regulatory reform in the broadcast industry by
building strategic partnerships and alliances. She also more recently led
Corporate Affairs strategies for Atlantic Lottery Corporation overseeing
stakeholder and community relations as well as corporate reputation."
TIAC says Bell
takes the helm at a time of challenging and evolving public policy combined
with increased global travel sector competition. While travel and tourism
is among the highest performing sectors of the global economy, Canada has not
kept pace with worldwide growth due to a variety of competitive, structural and
public policy issues.
extended special thanks to Rob Taylor, “who led the organization with
unwavering leadership, dedication and professionalism over the past several
months as interim President and CEO."
