NB Power Chair Steps Down


The New Brunswick Power Corporation Board of Directors today announced that Charles (Chuck) Firlotte is stepping down from his role as Board Chair. Vice Chair Andrew MacGillivray will serve as the Chair.

“It has been an honour to serve on the NB Power Board for the past nine years, including the last three years as Board Chair,” says Firlotte. “With the appointment of Lori Clark, the first female President and CEO in the century-plus history of NB Power, the development of a strategic plan now ready for implementation, and a cost optimization review now complete, I depart with every confidence NB Power is on the right path toward a promising future. The Board is in great hands with Andrew MacGillivray, and I would like to thank Premier Higgs and Minister Holland for the opportunity to serve my province."

Andrew MacGillivray has been a member of the NB Power Board since April 2015 and has served as Vice Chair for the past six years. Mr. MacGillivray is the retired President and CEO of Gay Lea Foods, a large Canadian dairy co-operative. He serves as the Chair of the Moosehead and Crosby Advisory Boards. He is actively engaged in advising and supporting local businesses and community programs.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Chuck for his service to NB Power and the province of New Brunswick,” says MacGillivray. “I look forward to working with the Board and management to continue the work advanced under Chuck’s leadership.”
