BCLC replaces interim president and CEO

BCLC has named its new interim president and CEO. On Wednesday, the crown corporation announced in a press release the appointment of Lynda Cavanaugh.

Cavanaugh replaces interim president and CEO Greg Moore, who assumed the temporary role in September 2019. Moore had been filling in temporarily for Jim Lightbody, who is away on medical leave for cancer treatment. Moore will wrap up his tenure at the end of this week and leaves for a job in the private sector.

Cavanaugh has a history of work in public service, including as assistant deputy minister in the Ministries of the Attorney General and Public Safety and Solicitor General.

BCLC noted in the press release Cavanaugh will work from Sidney on Vancouver Island, citing the COVID-19 pandemic for not travelling to BCLC’s headquarters in Kamloops.

“When it is safe to do so, she will travel as needed between BCLC’s head office in Kamloops and its Vancouver office,” the release said.

KTW reached out to BCLC and asked about the crown corporation's commitment to keeping its headquarters in Kamloops. In an email statement, BCLC stated: "BCLC and the province remain committed to keeping BCLC's head office in Kamloops and remaining a leading employer in the community."
