The Board of Directors of the Canadian Council of Independent Laboratories (CCIL) has announced that Muktha Tumkur has been appointed executive director of the organization, replacing Alnoor (Al) Nathoo who has retired.

Tumkur holds a B. Eng. degree from Ryerson University and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario, and is licensed with Professional Engineers Ontario. She assumed her new duties on May 1, 2019. She comes to CCIL with more than 15 years of experience with the CSA Group and most recently with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.

At CSA Group, she was responsible for implementing corporate strategies, “end to end” program delivery and management. She is a seasoned facilitator, and has a successful track record in building consensus among diverse stakeholders. Tumkur is also a skilled communicator, and will be a highly effective advocate for CCIL and its members.
Born in India, Tumkur grew up in Nova Scotia and later moved to Ontario where she completed her studies and began her career. She enjoys working out at the gym, cycling, hiking and reading, is active with the Clarkson Toastmasters Club, and loves dogs. Valued most is the time she spends with her family and friends throughout the world.
“We’re excited about Ms. Tumkur joining us and providing her leadership and guidance as we ramp up our services, grow the organization, and champion the interests of our members across Canada,” CCIL President Tony Araujo said.
“We would also like to thank Mr. Nathoo for his invaluable contribution as Executive Director over the past two years, and for his service as a Board member over 20 years.”
