At the August meeting of the EEC Complex Interim Board the resignation of James Allen as EECC General Manager was accepted. Mr. Allen had held the position since December, 2015. The Board then decided the process to fill this vacancy would be delayed until the Market and Organizational Review Study for Aylmer is completed. Aylmer CEO Jenny Reynaert was appointed to be the day by day operations manager in the interim. Said the CEO: “The Review was approved in February at a cost of nearly $30,000. We are anticipating the report will be finalized by the end of December or early January. Typically it is recommended that a market review be completed every 5 years. The previous market review was done in 2005. An organizational review is undertaken only when needed.”

Added Malahide Mayor Dave Mennill – “The organizational review will be presented to the EECC board at the January 31st meeting.  The complex is functioning well; Jenny Reynaert and the staff are filling in for the General Manager at the present time.  Of course this cannot be a permanent arrangement and we are hoping to replace the position in the spring.”
