After almost six years as President & CEO of the Mississauga Board of Trade, David Wojcik has announced that he will be retiring from his position effective August 31, 2021.
“David is a very inspiring and action-oriented leader,” says Ken Tencer, Ken Tencer, CEO, Spyder Works Inc. and Chair, MBOT. “He came to MBOT with a very clear strategic vision and has steadily advanced our advocacy, membership and communication goals. His efforts, especially during the challenge of the past 12 months, have helped MBOT become one of the most vocal, impactful and efficient boards of trade in the country.”
Since joining MBOT in 2015, David has significantly strengthened relationships with local politicians, amplified MBOT’s voice through innovative communication channels and expanded membership participation and benefits. His commitment to meeting the needs of Mississauga businesses can be seen in the seamless transition MBOT made to delivering its services digitally when Covid-19 hit last spring. Most recently, he co-created of the Mississauga Economic Recovery Group (MERG), which is uniting a diverse group of CEOs to drive forward a wide range of Covid-19 recovery initiatives.
In addition to his many achievements, David is known for his relationship building skills and genuinely approachable style – qualities that have made him a very special leader to MBOT employees and stakeholders.
“I’m so proud of the work we’ve accomplished as a team over the past six years,” says David. “It has been a pleasure working with so many talented people and a true honour to have served the needs of Mississauga businesses.”
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank David for everything he’s done to grow MBOT and wish him the very best of luck when he transitions to a relaxing retirement in a few months.
