The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes has announced Amy Terrill as executive director, following Scott Robertson’s retirement on Feb 15.
Terrill, a lifelong Kawartha Lakes resident, brings with her 25 years of experience in the private sector and is highly respected for her work in the non-profit sector. She has extensive experience in leadership, communications, government relations and project management. Formulating and executing Strategic Plans has been essential to her success throughout her career.
Terrill is perhaps best known locally as the former general manager of the Lindsay & District Chamber of Commerce from 2002 to 2006, and former producer and anchor on CHEX Television from 1994 to 2002. Terrill holds a BA in Political Science from Queen’s University and most recently held the position of Executive Vice President at Music Canada where she is esteemed by colleagues as a “visionary” with a calm, caring disposition for those she works with and for.
In her role prior to joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes, Terrill successfully led and secured the funding for an Ontario-wide music program as well as established a new national non-profit to provide stewardship of the funds.
“We’re very excited to have Amy on board. Her depth of experience, knowledge and management capabilities will complement our growing team of engaged, caring employees,” says David Blackburn, Club Board of Directors President.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes is an incredibly important organization, and it will be a privilege to work with the amazing team to improve the lives of children, youth and families.” Says Terrill. “I am positively thrilled to be able to bring the experience in advocacy and non-profit management I’ve gained over the last few years, and to work collaboratively with our partners in order that more young people can reach their full potential.”
