The Municipality of North Grenville is welcoming two new directors to the organization.
“On behalf of the Municipality of North Grenville, I would like to welcome our new directors, Ms. Babcock-Cormier and Mr. Brookman, to our organization,” said CAO Gary Dyke. “Their collective experience in both the municipal and private sector will bring a new dynamic to our team and they will be key contributors as we work together to move North Grenville forward.”
Mr. Brad Brookman started with the Municipality in July as the new Director of Finance/Treasurer. Mr. Brookman brings over 20 years of experience in financial performance management, corporate governance, internal and external audit, risk management and accounting. His past roles include key leadership positions in not-for-profit, public, private, federal and municipal government sectors.
Ms. Heather Babcock-Cormier has joined the Municipality as Director of Legislative Services (Clerk)/ Municipal Solicitor. After attending York University’s Public Policy and Administration program, Ms. Babcock-Cormier went on to complete her Bachelor of Laws at The University of Western Ontario and was called to the Ontario Bar in 2001. Ms. Babcock- Cormier’s unique skillset has permitted the municipality to modify the traditional role of Municipal Clerk to increase our service level to the com- munity.
After a number of years in legal practice, Ms. Babcock-Cormier joined one of Ontario’s largest municipalities providing legal advice on a variety of complex, high-profile matters, including land acquisition for capital infrastructure projects.
“My Council colleagues and I are thrilled to welcome Ms. Babcock-Cormier and Mr. Brookman to the Municipality,” added Mayor Nancy Peckford. “The expertise they bring represents a tremendous asset to the Municipality, residents and business leaders.”
Ms. Babcock-Cormier will be stepping in for recently retired Municipal Clerk Cahl Pominville and Mr. Brookman will be taking over for former Municipal Treasurer Marcus Hewitt who left for a position with Kemptville District Hospital.
