Mississauga Board of Trade gets new CEO
Published July 7, 2021 at 3:17 pm
After six years at the helm of one of Canada’s largest chambers of commerce, David Wojcik is stepping down as President & CEO of the Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT).
Trevor McPherson, who has been with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce since 2006, will take over the top job August 9.
Wojcik will be retiring at the end of the summer.
McPherson is a not-for-profit senior executive with extensive experience in economic development and in driving domestic and international business growth. He has held numerous positions at the Ontario Chamber over the past 15 years, most recently as Vice President, Member Services.
One of his most significant accomplishments is the Ontario Economic Summit, a high-profile forum that engaged leaders from business, government, labour, academia and the non-government community in a collaborative effort to determine ways to grow the economy.
“We were fortunate to meet many qualified candidates, but Trevor’s unique combination of experience, skills and relationships were tailor-made for this role,” says Ken Tencer, CEO, Spyder Works Inc. and MBOT’s Chair. “He has a long, strong background supporting economic growth for businesses of all sizes, he knows how to effectively connect with members and stakeholders, and he really understands how to make things happen. Best of all, he’s familiar with MBOT and the team and will hit the ground running.”
“MBOT is one of the most forward-thinking and influential boards of trade in Canada and I’ve long admired the work it does,” McPherson said. “I’m thrilled with the opportunity to join this very talented and professional team.
The Mississauga Board of Trade has been the ‘Voice of Business’ for Mississauga, Canada’s sixth-largest city and home to more than 50,000 businesses, since 1961.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
