Resignation of Scott McTavish

August 16, 2018 11:48 am

As some of you may already be aware there are some big changes happening at the Pumphouse. Please see below a letter from our Board President Karen Almadi:

It is with mixed feelings and emotions that we announce the resignation of our CEO Scott McTavish effective as of the 31st of August 2018. Scott is moving on to pursue an exciting new career as the Operations Manager for the Northern and Southern Jubilee Auditoriums. It’s always sad to lose a professional, dedicated, and passionate person like Scott and this move is undeniably a gain for his future organization.

 Since joining the Pumphouse in 2001, Scott’s contributions have been essential to our success over the years. He’s been a valuable, collaborative leader well respected and appreciated by the Pumphouse board, staff, stakeholders and patrons alike. His colleagues recognize him for his courtesy, insight, and commitment to the success and advancement of Calgary’s, and Alberta’s, cultural community. Including being recently honoured, by the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, with the 2018 Ian Anderson Committee Chair of the Year Award for his exceptional leadership and commitment as Chair of the Chamber’s Municipal Direction Committee. His enthusiasm, work and passion including extended hours of devotion to the Pumphouse are greatly honoured. We will miss Scott’s charm, professionalism, empathy and strength. We acknowledge Scott’s efforts and thank him for his unconditional commitment and dedication throughout the years.

 Filling Scott’s shoes will not be an easy task. That said, there is no-one more talented and able to step into the newly created management role of Production and Operations Manager than Sabrina Mueller (currently our Technical Director). Sabrina has worked alongside Scott for the past nine years and shares the same vision, respect and appreciation of our stakeholders as he did. We look forward to Sabrina’s future success in her new role with us.

 On behalf of the Board of Directors and Staff

 Karen Almadi, President.

To help in easing the quick transition Scott will be taking a seat on the board until our AGM in December.
