As well, a business background or interest in the business side of a corporation will be of interest. This person must be confident, assertive, and bright, and must be able to build rapport, to listen to the stakeholders’ fundamental concern, and to formulate creative solutions in a collegial manner, as he/she will be working closely with the business groups and with the executive team.

This is an exceptional opportunity with a growing, exciting, private Canadian company as it continues to expand. The environment is dynamic and professional and the culture is energetic. It offers an attractive compensation package, diverse work and growth opportunities.
