The Downtown Timmins Business Improvement Association (BIA) has announced its new leader.
The BIA board has named Cindy Campbell as the new executive director. It's a position that had been held by Noella Rinaldo, who left earlier this month to take a job with the Timmins Economic Development Corporation.
Campbell's first day on the job is Oct. 5.
“I am so excited to return to Timmins and contribute to the vibrancy and growth of Downtown Timmins. This is an amazing career opportunity and I look forward to working with all of the member businesses, and their partners, to grow Downtown Timmins," Campbell said in a news release.
Originally from Timmins, she was working with the Downtown Haliburton BIA and as the business manager of the Highlander newspaper.
According to the news release, Campbell contributed professionally to the Canadian Mental Health Association and BIA in Timmins after university. She then worked with Everest College for 16 years.
"After leaving the corporate world, Cindy used her acquired skills and talents to help smaller businesses reach greater efficiencies and operations management. She is a valued business coach and mentor, who recognizes and embraces that small business ownership is the key to a healthy economy," reads the announcement.
