New president and CEO to lead geothermal coalition
March 6, 2017
The Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (CGC) board of directors has appointed Ted Kantrowitz as president. Kantrowitz joined the organization’s current board and assumed CEO duties immediately. His appointment follows the resignation of former president and CEO Denis Tanguay.
“In choosing a new president and CEO, the board sought to carry unique institutional knowledge forward while sending a substantial positive signal to CGC members and partners,” said Pat Rudka, CGC’s chair. “Thousands of industry stakeholders have gotten to know Ted over the years in CGC executive roles, and he has repeatedly demonstrated great business, policy and market leadership for our sector.”
During CGC’s recent transition, staff has been addressing strategic, policy and operational challenges. CGC will soon begin communicating with members, allies and industry friends around recent operational improvements and the geothermal organization’s future.
Kantrowitz will provide a briefing to members on CGC activities and progress prior to board elections at CGC’s next annual general meeting. Specifics of the AGM, which will take place before June 30 2017, have yet to be announced.
The Canadian GeoExchange Coalition is a national industry association for renewable, efficient heat pump technology. It recently relocated to 7240 Waverly Street in Montreal, QC.
