Changes at Gibson Centre elevates its president to ED, radio GM on board

Posted January 23, 2014

There has been a change in administration at the Gibson Cultural Centre (GCC) in Alliston that includes its now former Board president hired as its new Executive Director.

Jennifer Fortin, who is leaving her job as Branch Manager of Alliston Legion, moves from the volunteer board position into a paid management role at the GCC. Ms. Fortin replaces Marsha Slack, Operations Manager, at the end of next month.

Janette Vander Zaag, takes over as President of a board that now also includes Brian DePoe, General Manager of the MyFM radio station, which is a tenant on the third floor of the facility.

The radio station tenancy in the building required the Town to amend the zoning at the Gibson Centre to accommodate the private commercial broadcaster. New Tecumseth ratepayers picked up the approximate $10,000 cost to not only change the zoning, a process normally paid for by the applicant, when it took the application on as a municipal file. Peter Gordon, Hart Holmstrom, and Ken Lawrence are also directors.

New Tecumseth has provided nearly $1.5 million in grants to the GCC since 2000, and continues to provide the organization with $25,000 a year in grant, and $10,000 grant for the theatre school.
