    Who is the current CEO? Oddly enough, although the position is referenced in several places on the Skate Canada web site, I could not find any name attached to it. I see a President and a COO, but no CEO listed.

    William Thompson was the previous CEO who retired last August: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...f-Skate-Canada

    Well that explains why there's no one listed on the web site.

    Actual bumper sticker series: Jesus is my co-pilot. Satan is my financial advisor. Budha is my therapist. L. Ron Hubbard owes me $50.

    Notice the comment at the bottom of the job description, "If you are interested in applying for this position, please select where you heard about the opportunity...." You could specify "FSU".

    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    FSU is the font of all knowledge. Anyone who says that is where they got their info from should be highly regarded.
