Scott McNeil-Smith, national director, projects and partnerships for EMC is now vice-president, manufacturing sector performance.

“Working with the many thousands of manufacturers EMC has touched over the past 20-plus years, has been both a privilege and an exciting challenge,” McNeil-Smith says.

“As we continue the next phase of helping industry of all sizes to foresee the path towards excellence, Canada’s largest manufacturing consortium will be looking at needs, capabilities and solutions that have not been envisioned yet. I look forward to what the future will bring for EMC and its members, helping the Canadian manufacturing sector to grow and prosper.”

The final appointment is Bren de Leeuw, formerly operations manager, Western Canada for EMC, who is now vice-president, community partnerships and stakeholder relationships.

“I am absolutely delighted to be contributing to the success and growth of our EMC members and for Canadian manufacturers as a whole,” says de Leeuw.

“After nearly 20 years at EMC, without a doubt I continue to be amazed at the depth and breadth of products produced and marvel at the entrepreneurial spirit, ongoing ingenuity and at the innovative ideas which spur Canadian industry forward in a constantly growing global marketplace.”
