“I have worked with George during a good deal of his time with SLEP. He established great communication with the Board of Directors and appeared to have boundless energy. His ability to research new areas of development was the cornerstone to growth and sector diversification in Sarnia-Lambton,” said Bruce Hein, Chair of the SLEP Board of Directors. “We all wish him success in his retirement, and in whatever endeavor he chooses to pursue, going forward.”
