OMCA and MCC’s Chair, Marc Laplante, announced last week that Vince will officially start with the organization on April 19.
Vince has strong ties to Tourism HR Canada, having served on its Board for several years. Previous to this, he worked at the organization for over a decade, most recently as its Vice-President, Marketing and Business Development.
“The Tourism HR Canada team and Board of Directors look forward to continuing to work with Vince in his new capacity at OMCA,” stated Philip Mondor, President and CEO of Tourism HR Canada. “He is passionate about building a world-class tourism economy in Canada, and he brings extensive knowledge and experience that will strongly contribute to the recovery of the sector.”
In 2017, following his tenure at Tourism HR Canada, Vince joined the team at the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC), where he served as Director of Policy and Stakeholder relations and then Vice-President, Stakeholder Relations and Business Development. He has led TIAC’s advocacy efforts since November, including the launch of the 2021 Tourism Recovery Plan, as the Acting CEO. His last day at TIAC will be April 8.
