The Huron County Economic Development Board is welcoming its newest member with the recruitment of Dr. Maureen Nummelin.

Dr. Nummelin is currently the Chief Ethics Officer at the University of Waterloo, one of Canada’s leading universities in research and innovation. In her current role, she is responsible for ensuring that all research conducted under the auspices of the university is performed ethically and with integrity. Prior to this position she spent 22 years as a Professor of International Business Management utilizing her expertise in strategic planning, operations management and human resources to teach students in the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program.

“Maureen brings an exceptional level of management strategy experience gained during her career working in national and international business environments,” said Jim Lynn, Board Chair. “I’m thrilled to work with her as we continue to implement Huron County’s strategic plan.”

Maureen holds a PhD in Management Science from the University of Waterloo, a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of Toronto and an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University.

The Board, which represents an innovative private / public partnership, has the mandate to look at all things related to the future economic success of Huron County. The newly formed Huron County Economic Development Strategic Plan is the result of intensive, widespread collaboration among community stakeholders over the previous year.
