Executive Director

posted Jul 4, 2013, 11:07 AM by Hector Carranco
It is my great pleasure to announce the hiring of Hector Carranco as the Executive Director of the Rideau Canoe Club. Hector will be responsible for the implementation of our strategic plan primarily but not solely in the area of fundraising and partnerships. Hector has committed many volunteer hours and an immense amount of energy in the club, initially as a board member and more recently as the commodore. He was instrumental in securing funding for the new building and was the driving force behind the development of our strategic plan.
The RCC has been growing rapidly in the last few years and achieving a great deal of success both on the water and in becoming a true centre of paddling excellence.  In order to sustain and build upon this growth, the Board of Directors feels that it is the right time to establish the Executive Director position and to call upon the support and guidance that will be provided by Hector.   The size and scope of the club has got to the point where it is difficult to rely solely on volunteers to provide from a governance perspective.  We have seen outstanding results with the help of our professional coaching and administrative positions, and an Executive Director will better position us to maximize the opportunities available. Our goal is always to build a better and stronger club. Hector begins immediately and can be reached at hector.carranco@rideaucanoeclub.ca.
