MARKHAM, Ontario: Supply Chain and Logistics Association Canada (SCL) is undergoing a transition in management.

Bob Armstrong, who has served as president for six years, is retiring from the organization. As reported yesterday, he has moved into the president’s role with Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in North America (CILTNA).

SCL director of operations, Alison Toscano, has now been promoted to the position of executive director, and will be responsible for leading the organization while SCL’s board finalizes its succession plan.

“We are confident that Alison will provide strong management leadership to the SCL team,” says chair Al Norrie.

For her part, Toscano already has a strong agenda in place.

“We’re looking to increase our student research program, and to groom the students up the supply chain to the betterment of the industry,” said Toscano.

She also wants to increase the association’s offerings to its regular members and to the supply chain industry as a whole, and to maximize SCL’s links and ties with its partners.
