Canadian Badlands announces new executive director

     The CBL Board of Directors is pleased to announce Bob Davis has been appointed to the position of executive director of Canadian Badlands Ltd. (CBL).
    Davis joins CBL from the Rosebud Centre of the Arts, one of the signature experiences within the Canadian Badlands.
     “Bob brings a legacy of success at the Rosebud Centre of the Arts and he’s been a supporter for many years for the ongoing development of the Canadian Badlands as an iconic tourism destination,” says Doug Jones, CBL president. “Bob will be a tremendous addition to Canadian Badlands Ltd. as we continue to work to implement the Tourism Development Strategy to benefit our 63 shareholder communities economically, socially and environmentally.”
     Canadian Badlands Ltd. will be formally introducing Davis as its new executive director on Sunday, October 23 from 3-5 p.m. in the Conservatory Room at the Travel Alberta Industry Conference.
    “I have been fortunate to have worked with an organization and in a community that is an Alberta and Canadian Badlands treasure in the arts, education, hospitality and tourism,” says Davis. “I look forward to bringing my skill and passion to the Canadian Badlands Ltd. There is tremendous potential for expanding and developing new tourism opportunities in the Canadian Badlands region.”
    Davis was on the Alberta South Tourism Destination Region Board from 2004 – 2010, including the position of Board Chair from 2006 – 2009.
    In his previous roles, Davis assisted with the design of five-year strategic plans and implementation of key objectives, including marketing plans for Rosebud Theatre, fund development plan, and local and regional partnerships for tourism. He has held a management position for a non-for profit community economic development organization and has been an independent facilitator for community based board training programs.
    Davis succeeds Cindy Amos and Manuelle Prunier, who were CBL’s previous executive directors from 2007-2010 and 2010-2011 respectively.
