“I am thrilled at the opportunity to work with Canada’s private broadcasters again,” said Mr. Desjardins. “I have always believed that broadcasters are essential connectors in their local communities, and are increasingly innovative enterprises that can contend on the global stage. While the sector faces many challenges, I look forward to serving and representing the CAB’s members as we address these issues now and in the years to come.”
Mr. Desjardins brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of association management for industry and professional groups, coming to the CAB after more than seven years in a senior management role at the Canadian Dental Association.
