New CITT Board Chair is Well-Known Logistics Pro
TORONTO, ON -- The Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation—better known as CITT—has a new chair. Ginnie Venslovaitis, CCLP, was elected during CITT’s annual general meeting on October 26th at the Canada Logistics Conference .
She replaces outgoing Chair Robert Ramsay, CCLP, who served as chair for the 2013-2015 term.
Venslovaitis is a well-known figure in the Canadian logistics world and has worked in management for, variously, Unilever and HBC, among other organizations.
In 2004, when she was with Unilever, Venslovaitis was named Supply Chain Executive of the Year by the Freight Management Association of Canada.
“I’m very pleased to have been elected as the new CITT Chair of the Board for 2015-2016,” said Venslovaitis.
“Robert’s guidance and commitment, along with that of the entire Board of Directors has helped CITT accomplish great things which will continue to build the reputation of professional excellence for CITT and CITT-Certified Logistics Professionals.”
“I think I speak for everyone on the new board when I say we’re very excited about the new offerings and products, such as webinars that we’re making available to everyone in the supply chain logistics sector. And, of course, we continue to add value, support, and industry-wide promotion for those who hold the CCLP designation and the students working towards it.”
Seeking to gain more complete knowledge of the transportation industry in Canada, Venslovaitis, CCLP, began working towards her designation from CITT at the recommendation of a supervisor. She earned her designation in 1998 and has been active with CITT since, having served on the Board of Directors in various capacities since 2009.
