Food and Beverage Canada’s (FBC) CEO Kathleen Sullivan will leave the association on February 17, 2023.
As FBC’s founding CEO, Sullivan played a key role in building the association and in establishing FBC as a key voice for Canada’s food and beverage manufacturing sector on issues of federal and national importance.
“We cannot thank Kathleen enough for her commitment to support Canada’s food and beverage manufacturing sector, and her work growing the association into what it is now – a recognized leading voice in Canada’s food sector,” said Michael Burrows, past chair of Food and Beverage Canada and CEO of Maple Lodge Farms. “The executive committee extends its deep appreciation to Kathleen for her work and leadership over the past five years”.
“During my time with Food and Beverage Canada, I have witnessed firsthand the importance of having a national association that understands and truly represents the needs of Canada’s food and beverage manufacturing sector,” said Kathleen Sullivan, outgoing CEO. “I am proud to have supported Canada’s small and medium-sized food processors in this role and I look forward to promoting Food and Beverage Canada, as well as Canada’s vital provincial and regional associations, as they continue this work.”
Kathleen will continue her almost 30-year career in Canada’s agri-food sector as vice-president, Government & Industry Relations with Maple Leaf Foods, beginning February 20, 2023.
Food and Beverage Canada’s executive committee has begun the recruitment process for a new CEO.
