WHITBY, ON, Dec. 13, 2012 /CNW/ - Michael Nettleton, Chair of the Board
of Directors at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences
(Ontario Shores) today announced that after eight years in the role of
CEO of the organization, Glenna Raymond will be assuming the role of
strategic advisor, and Deputy CEO Karim Mamdani has been appointed to
the role of CEO, effective April 1, 2013.
"During her eight year tenure Glenna Raymond has not only been a leader
at Ontario Shores but she is also a leader in transforming mental
health care both provincially, nationally and internationally. Her
leadership at Ontario Shores has resulted in our practices,
philosophies and transforming ideas being shared with organizations

in reshaping our mission, vision and values and leading the creation of
the strategic plan that has guided our success. The Board could not be

successful implementation of the new Strategic Plan.
Karim Mamdani has been with Ontario Shores for over six years, most

He translates that passion into driving positive change and system
