Last year, the Board approved the addition of a new role to complement the Chamber’s activities directly aligned to our efforts to actively advocate on behalf of our members and Burlington’s business community. Through thoughtful and purposeful communication, the Chamber’s new Director of Stakeholder Relations and Policy will be responsible for driving forward the interests and concerns of our members with key influencers in the community, including: all levels of government, associations, community partners and other stakeholders.
We are pleased to share that Corinne Radake will officially join our team on January 25, 2021, as Director, Stakeholder Relations and Policy.
“This is a key role for the Chamber – one that supports the vision of the Board and the Chamber’s mandate to play a proactive and influential role in policy development for our members,” says Carla Y. Nell, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Chamber. “I’m looking forward to working with Corinne; she has a unique combination of experience, expertise and passion for Burlington that will undoubtedly bring significant value to our members.”
Corinne has spent her career in corporate communications with responsibility for a wide range of duties including government and media relations, as well as marketing and public relations. Most recently, she was Director, Public Affairs at the Ontario Pharmacists Association (OPA) where she was responsible for managing several government and media relations files, including contributing to the recent provincial government approval to conduct COVID-19 testing in pharmacies. Prior to OPA, Corinne was Director, Member Marketing at the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario where she provided strategic direction and communication through one of Canada’s largest association mergers. In addition, she has also worked at the City of Hamilton as a Communications Officer in Community Services and Public Health.
