EDMONTON, Dec. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - The Alberta Motor Vehicle Industry Council is pleased to announce that Doug Lagore will fill the position of interim CEO of AMVIC, effective Dec. 15, 2016.
Lagore has more than 30 years of experience as a highly respected senior leader. He has worked in a consultant role with several municipalities and one of his specializations includes governance models.
"We are confident that Mr. Lagore has the expertise necessary to lead AMVIC during this transition period," Paul Williams, AMVIC board chair said.
The Report on AMVIC Governance and Operations was released Dec. 6, 2016. The report recommends that AMVIC build upon foundational pieces that are working, by making structural changes to refresh and revise the automotive regulator.
"We are committed to implementing the recommendations in the report," Williams said. "The protection of automotive consumers is our priority and hiring an experienced leader is our first step moving forward."
Lagore will serve as both CEO and Director of Fair Trading (as delegated) while AMVIC works to recruit an individual for the role of Registrar, so that the CEO and Director of Fair Trading roles can be separated as recommended in the Report.
