TORONTO, ON – July 12, 2018 – The board of directors of ROWONTARIO is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Backer as the organization’s full-time Executive Director, effective July 1, 2018.
 
Andrew has served as Executive Director since April 1, 2017 on a contract basis. During those 15 months, he has overseen the writing of a new strategic plan for ROWONTARIO and a restructuring, management and expansion of the office, its activities and staff to strengthen and expand member services as well as growing our regatta activities across the province.
