 Sydney, Nova Scotia June 17th, 2017  

 

Mr. Roland Thornhill recently retired from the LCI Board of Directors as a member and Chairman of the Board effective June 17th, 2017.

Mr. Thornhill brought his extensive experience working at senior levels in both public and private sector bringing strong financial, education and business knowledge to the LCI Board. He is a well-known Canadian politician who was born in Newfoundland and Labrador. Mr. Thornhill attended Memorial University and then Dalhousie. He was a stockbroker, member of the Progressive Conservative party, Nova Scotia Deputy Premier, Mayor of Dartmouth as well as a financial consultant before retiring. As a charitable, generous and community-minded person he volunteers his time to many organizations. We are grateful for his contribution to our Board.

 

LCI was very fortunate to have Mr. Thornhill serve on the LCI Board of Directors for five years. He was appointed as a board member in April 2013 and then elected to serve as Chairman of the Board in 2015. His participation on the board was consistent with thoughtful insights and deliberations. As a respected Chairman he was organized, decisive, and articulate with great listening skills. He always acknowledged the different perspectives and opinions at the table. We sincerely thank him for his commitment and valued contributions to LCI over his tenure. He served us well and will certainly be missed.
