Ken McCormack – President & CEO for Construction Labour Relations Association of BC

By PFM Search

PFM Executive Search is pleased to announce that Ken McCormack has joined the Construction Labour Relations Association of BC (CLR) as President & CEO.

Ken was most recently the President & CEO of the Automotive Retailers Association. A strategic professional and seasoned executive leader with more than 25 years of management experience at the highest levels, Ken has worked in government, consulting, agriculture and automotive sectors, representing associations similar in size and scope to CLR. Ken will work with the Board and staff to establish a vision and develop sound strategies to address the future needs and expectations of CLR and its membership. Opportunities will be explored both within the organization and the industry with a view to turning those opportunities into advantages for CLR members. Among other things, Ken strives to inspire people and teams, to form strong relationships and partnerships, to be a credible voice in decision making, to advance the needs of CLR and its membership, and to effectively support the Board of Directors.

In addition to a degree in Economics from the University of Alberta, Ken has invested further in his own passion of being an effective negotiator and mediator through advanced training and education from the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society. After announcing that he was leaving his position with the Automotive Retailers Association, he was asked to remain on the Board of Directors of the foundation started by ARA under Ken’s leadership to offer scholarships and bursary awards to people entering into automotive careers. That invitation is a testament to the respect and credibility Ken has earned from his employer and peers.
