There's also an official press release from Skate Canada: Change in Leadership at Skate Canada (http://www.skatecanada.ca/AboutUs/NewsDetails/tabid/2157/sni%5B2797%5D/1819/language/en-US/Default.aspx).

This feels rather sudden.

Indeed it does.

Love this quote from the press release:

The Board plans no immediate search for a CEO said Lavoie. “We have a very experienced, capable senior management team. We know that they will continue their fine work as a leadership group, while the Skate Canada Board focuses on its role of governance of the association.”

In other words, nothing to see here, move along :rolleyes:

Are we seriously expected to believe that Skate Canada can function for any length of time without a CEO? Or maybe they are not planning a search because they have a "chosen one" in mind already.

Or maybe the money is tight and they don't want a big salary on the books.

It doesn't sound like they plan to replace the CEO. Strange indeed :confused:

I'll miss him.
He seemed to love the sport and wanted it to receive proper attention/coverage.

Didn't SC get rid of the previous CEO just before worlds in Calgary?

I was wondering the same.

I've checked both the Skate Canada and SkateBuzz facebook sites and this news isn't mentioned. So weird. Are they waiting to post something until they can also name the new CEO?
