Burnaby, BC – After 29 years at the helm of MCABC, executive vice president Dana Taylor is retiring. As of June 30, 2019, Dana will be turning his attention to his many personal projects and interests. Dana was the longest serving EVP in MCABC’s history, as well as its affiliated entities. We wish Dana and Ramona well in their new chapter.
MCABC announces that its board of directors has hired Kim Barbero as its new chief executive officer. Kim commences her position as of April 15, with a brief period of overlap with Dana.
“Dana contributed 29 years to this association and his achievements will not be forgotten,” said MCABC board president Dale Miller. The board thanks Dana for his loyal service to MCABC which was marked by his passion for furthering issues such as the fight for prompt payment legislation for trade contractors. “His deep understanding of the issues facing mechanical contractors in this province guided the association and made it into what it is today,” Dale said. “Had it not been for Dana’s leadership, MCABC would not be the respected organization it is.”
Kim Barbero comes to MCABC with a wealth and breadth of leadership experience in the corporate, consulting and not-for-profit sectors, including serving as the Executive Director of Boating BC (formerly BC Marine Trades Association) during a pivotal time in the Association’s transformation. For the past 10 years, Kim has led local and global teams and facilitated numerous strategic stakeholder initiatives for corporate and association clients. Prior her consulting business, Kim lead the global Corporate Communications and Brand Management function at Teekay Corporation.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Kim’s calibre and experience step up to lead our association,” said Wayne Davidson, MCABC secretary treasurer and head of the committee that hired Kim. “Kim is a strong communicator who understands association dynamics. With Kim’s leadership capabilities, MCABC will flourish into the future. Welcome to the MCABC family, Kim!”
