WSPS appoints President & CEO

On behalf of the WSPS Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce that Lynn Brownell has accepted the permanent position of WSPS President and CEO, effective immediately.

With a career spanning more than 20 years in Ontario's prevention system, Lynn is a passionate advocate for health and safety. She joined Ontario Services Safety Alliance as Director, Strategic Management Office, in 2006. Most recently, she has served in the interim role of WSPS President and CEO, in addition to performing as Vice President of Customer Acquisition and Retention/Delivery, and Strategy and Stakeholder Engagement.

Lynn continually seeks new ways to extend WSPS' reach to the approximately 4 million employees working in the manufacturing, agriculture and services sectors across Ontario. A strong and inclusive collaborator, Lynn prioritizes building integrated teams and community relationships, and creating value for customers. Through her work with boards of directors as well as industry and prevention system leaders, she has established a reputation as a strong leader with a passion for good governance, and a champion of research-based innovation.

We wish Lynn much success in her new role.
