Propel ICT would like to announced the addition of Susan Holt, President and CEO of the New Brunswick Business Council, to its board of directors. This brings a total of three new board members since July’s AGM where Jeff Thompson, CEO of User Events and Tim Burke, CEO of 26Ones were added to the board. Susan brings to Propel a diverse background and unique perspective. Raised in Fredericton, Susan's first job was conducting environmental impact assessments on the Maritimes & Northeast pipeline project with the home-grown firm Washburn & Gillis. After completing a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a BAH in Economics at Queen's University, Susan went on to sales, human resources and management roles with some of the world's most successful firms: Xerox, Manpower, HP, Cognos/IBM and Chalk/Research In Motion.
Having spent nearly a decade working around the world, from Toronto and Ottawa to Australia and India, Susan returned to New Brunswick in 2007 and has been committed to the province’s growth ever since. Recently serving as CEO of the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce, Susan has proven to be a savvy spokesperson, a strong relationship builder and a tireless champion for entrepreneurs in our province. Today, she leads 24 of New Brunswick’s foremost business leaders on the NB Business Council, working to make New Brunswick the best province to start and grow a company.
Propel looks forward to working closer with Susan and the New Brunswick Business Council to help further expand the council’s Early Adopters and Passport Service programs.
Welcome to the family Susan!
