July 30, 2014, Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Stone, Sand &
Gravel Association’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment
of Ted Wigdor CEO of the Association.

 

Most recently the Vice-President, Government and Corporate
Affairs with the Certified General Accountants (CGAs) of Ontario, Ted brings a
depth and breadth of experience in government relations, association management
and leadership, regulatory affairs and issues management.  Ted will start
with OSSGA on August 11th and have the opportunity to meet many OSSGA members
over his first few weeks on the job – through the current roster of tours and
regional meetings.

In addition to his experience at CGA Ontario, an
organization that serves 31,000 members and students, Ted was also President at
SAMCI Toronto (S.A. Murray Consulting Inc.) – a small government relations firm
with a big reputation. During his time at SAMCI, Ted spent seven years working
with the Ontario division of the Cement Association of Canada to help them
develop messaging that resonated in the political framework and advanced their
agenda. This included the formation of a non-partisan Cement Caucus at Queen’s
Park and a focus on industry issues.

 

“Ted has a strong background managing complex issues and is
not afraid to look at things differently,” said Malcolm Croskery, Chair of the
OSSGA Board of Directors. “We believe that skill set and those insights will be
a significant asset to the industry as we face the challenges ahead.”

 

A quick study, Ted inherently understands stakeholder
relations, how governments think and how to navigate the system to get things
done.

 

Ted has served on numerous boards throughout his career –
everything from well-recognized public affairs institutes to the parental
advisory committee at his children’s school and the board of the community
seniors activity centre.

Ted has an undergraduate degree in Commerce from McGill
University, a Masters in Public Administration from Carleton University and an
MBA from the University of Ottawa.

 

Previous OSSGA CEO Moreen Miller left the Association in May
to pursue new challenges as President of Fowler Construction. Under Moreen’s
leadership, the Association earned a solid reputation as a proactive industry
organization at the forefront of natural resource management in Ontario and an
Association that lives the credo that we’re stronger together.

 

The OSSGA Board of Directors would also like to acknowledge
the hard work and dedication of OSSGA’s staff team for leading the Association
in the interim period between CEOs.
