OUTSPORT TORONTO is pleased to announce that Gerlinde Weger has been appointed to its board of directors,heading up its Marketing, Communications, and Public Relations efforts. Weger was appointed at OUTSPORT TORONTO's 16 December 2013 board meeting.
"I'm delighted to have Gerlinde join us," said OUTSPORT TORONTO Chair Shawn Sheridan. "We have had a vacancy in this area for some time, and I am confident that Gerlinde's advertising and communications background, along with her strong brand awareness will be increadibly valuable to us."
Weger started her career in international advertising, working in Canada, Germany and Hong Kong. She then joined a ground breaking Internet development company where she lead teams that created the first full service online banking site in Europe and the first personalised, data-base driven banking site in the United States.
OUTSPORT TORONTO is at the same time sad to announce the departure of Stephanie Bell from its board of directors. "Stephanie was a fantastic director, very committed to OUTSPORT TORONTO's mission, vision, and values," said Sheridan. "Her steadiness, thoughtful insights, and valuable perspective will be missed."
Bell became Director of Fundraising and Development in the spring of 2012. Her departure opens a vacancy on the board for that portfolio. Those interested in potentially filling that role should contact OUTSPORT TORONTO's Vice-chair Darlene Homonko at Darlene.Homonko@OutSportToronto.org .
