Perrin Beatty resigns from CME, effective Aug 12

Jun '07
Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters announced that President and CEO Perrin Beatty has tendered his resignation, which was accepted by the Board of Directors, effective August 12, 2007, to take on the role of President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Beatty has led CME since August 1999.

In making the announcement, CME Board Chair Larry Barrett congratulated Mr. Beatty on the organisation's achievements during his term. “CME has never been more relevant or effective than it is today,” said Mr. Barrett. “Our Manufacturing 20/20 initiative set out a clear roadmap for the sector's future."

"We have scored important policy successes like the announcement of accelerated capital cost allowances for equipment and machinery in the March budget, we have led on issues like skills and the border and we have added new tools, including new lean manufacturing consortia and www.icosmo.ca to promote the business success of Canadian industry,” he added.

“Perrin will be missed by the Board and by his colleagues at CME, but he leaves behind a strong team and an organization that has just completed its most successful year in over a decade,” said Mr. Barrett.
