Calgary, AB (March 28, 2022) -- Alpine Canada is pleased to announce that Anne-Marie Boucher, a member of the Board of Directors since October 2019, has been appointed Vice-Chair of the Board.
“This is an exciting time for Alpine Canada and Anne-Marie,” says President and CEO Therese Brisson. “Anne-Marie, will be of great assistance and support to current Board Chair Tim Dattels, who will continue to lead a very strong board that is focused on helping Canada be a world-leading ski racing nation and delivering on our mission to increase podium performances and inspire growth in participation and fans.”
“I am passionate about skiing and helping our athletes develop and reach their full potential,” shares Anne-Marie. “I look forward to working with Tim, the rest of the board and all our stakeholders in the ski racing community to build on the momentum of this past Olympic season,” she adds.
