Chuck brings 40 years of leadership in building successful models of collaboration among industry, government, philanthropic, academic and community settings – the full spectrum of organizations involved in improving the lives of Canadians living with Parkinson’s. His talent for fostering collaboration is an invaluable asset to the PAC as it adds an additional layer of expertise to an already-robust roster of individuals.  

Over the years Chuck has volunteered his communications and media preparedness training to a diverse cross-section of organizations. He is able to do so thanks to his time in radio, as a business school lecturer, as the Vice President of Corporate Affairs for the Atlantic Lottery Corporate and as the Vice President of Partnerships at the Discovery Centre in Nova Scotia. He is accustomed to contributing to community engagement plans and strives to improve organizational protocols and practices to make the most of supporters’ time and donations.  

He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2014 and shares openly about his experience with it. Chuck participated in the roundtable discussions that led to the development of Parkinson Canada’s National Advocacy Roundtable Report which lays the foundation for the organization’s advocacy efforts for years to come.
