August 16, 2022: Following a comprehensive search and selection process, the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Lee Pigeau as the new Executive Director.
Lee has worked in the non-profit sector for close to 30 years.
“Lee brings tremendous experience and expertise to his new role as Executive Director of BDHF. His experience and success have been based on Lee’s commitment to important causes and building positive relationships with donors, volunteers and those he works with. This was key, and it is what contributed to Lee being the right fit for the BDHF”, says Linda Hansen, Chair of the Foundation Board of Directors.
Lee’s previous leadership experience in the health sector includes Executive Director of Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation, and Director of Philanthropy for Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation.
Lee has also served as the National Executive Director at the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association, and as CEO for Habitat for Humanity Huronia. As an adjunct faculty member of Georgian College’s Fundraising and Resource Development Program, Lee taught and mentored new fundraisers across Canada.
In anticipation of his new role, Lee states, “I am really excited to join the team at Brockville and District Hospital Foundation. Community hospitals are vitally important to the overall well being of any town or city. It is where the community takes care of their own. Being a part of that is extremely rewarding.”
Lee joins the Foundation at an exciting time as we embark upon our MRI/Equipment Campaign. “We look forward to welcoming Lee to the Foundation on September 14th, 2022, when he will start his new role. We know that we will benefit greatly from Lee’s vast experience” says Board Chair, Linda Hansen.
Joan Simon will remain in the role of Executive Director until September 14th, after which she will transition into focusing on Donors and Major Gifts.
