The Canadian Meat Council has appointed Christopher White to immediately be its new president and chief executive officer.
He takes over from Jim Laws.
“I am delighted to welcome Chris White to the Canadian Meat Council,” said council chairman Troy Warren.
“Chris will draw on his more than 20 years of successful experience in top-tier political, public, and private sector roles in the development of a new vision and strategic plan that will focus our organization on becoming a best in class trade association,” he said.
White has served as chief of staff for five federal cabinet ministers and vice-president of government relations in the finance, insurance, and auto sectors.
The council has about 400 members from the meat-processing industry.
