New CAS Leader in Peterborough

December 9, 2011 permalink

Kawartha-Haliburton CAS has a new executive director, Jennifer Wilson, who will take over in February. Her resumé includes a tour with Sudbury CAS. In the past Kawartha-Haliburton has been the source of a modest number of complaints, Sudbury far more. The new appointment is reason to hope for the best in Peterborough and fear for the worst.



New CAS executive director announced

The Kawartha Haliburton Children's Aid Society board of directors has announced that a new executive director has been chosen.

Jennifer Wilson will start in the role of executive director on Feb. 6 2012, a press release states.

Wilson has 22 years of experience in the child welfare sector, the press release states, including four years as a local director/director of service at the Children's Aid Society of the districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin.

Wilson will replace interim executive director Suzanne Geoffrion, who was brought into the agency in November a month into a strike by CAS staff. Geoffrion will stay on during the transition period, the release states.

Geoffrion took over abruptly from long-time executive director Hugh Nicholson who was set to retire in December.
