Seaway welcomes Karen Tippett to board of directors

The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) has appointed Karen Tippett to its board of directors, replacing David Muir as the representative for the Government of Canada.

Tippett is an accountant with extensive experience in the financial field. Along with her work with municipal governments, her career includes employment with Ernst & Young and other private sector companies.

Terence Bowles, President and CEO of the SLSMC, welcomed her appointment.

“Karen Tippett’s extensive accounting knowledge will certainly provide the board with great depth and insight,” said Bowles. “Her experience with both not-for-profit public entities and Crown Corporations will be a plus.”

David Muir had been on the Seaway board since 2010.

“David Muir’s solid performance and long tenure on the board deserves our thanks and recognition,” said Bowles.
