Dear friends of The Men’s Centre;

On behalf of the Board of The Men’s Centre, it is my pleasure to welcome two new staff members to the society, Mark Busby, our new Executive Director, and Irena Chmielowicz, Operations Manager.

Mark brings with him an exceptional leadership career in the not-for-profit world spanning local, national and international organizations providing community-based health and social services to individuals and families.  In addition, Mark’s training as a counsellor will be especially welcome as TMC continues its endeavours to offer robust and well-managed programs and services for men, women and their families across the region.

Irena has an extensive background in client services administration and project management in the healthcare industry. Her experience in the private and public sectors encompasses various complex implementation projects in Canada and internationally. Irena’s organizational skills and ability to develop strong relationships will be a great asset to the TMC community.

The Board is very excited to add Mark Busby and Irena Chmielowicz to our management team. We look forward to seeing many new initiatives in the months ahead!

Please join us in a very warm welcome to Mark Busby and Irena Chmielowicz.


Jim Richardson, Board Chair.
