From the Niagara Falls Review:
After more than a year as chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission, Fay Booker has a new job.
The Burlington accountant and management consultant has been selected by the commission’s search committee as Niagara Parks’ new general manager.
The announcement was made official Thursday.
She fills the vacancy left by long-serving GM John Kernahan, who retired at the end of last year. A search was launched in April to find his replacement.
Janice Thomson, former vice-chairwoman of the Niagara Parks board, has assumed the role of interim chairwoman.
Booker said she is honoured and proud to be the new GM of a “fabulous” and “tremendous” organization.
“I want to have a positive impact. I want to be more involved from an operational level,” she told The Niagara Falls Review Thursday afternoon.
