Management Profiles

The management team of the Cosmos Group represents many years of industry and leadership experience; both within the not-for-profit sector and in the wider world of competitive business. Our programs and services are overseen by professionals with a broad range of expertise and who use a collaborative and strategic approach to ensuring the success of each project. In addition to the ongoing contribution our managers make to the organization, many also serve the community and the human services sector through their involvement on other community boards. Some of these include Private Career Development Contractors Association of Alberta (PCDC), Central Region FASD Society, Everyone’s Home (Red Deer 5-year homelessness initiative), Central Alberta Brain Injury Society (CABIS), Alberta Bottle Depot Association (ABDA), and the Alberta Used Oil Recycling Corporation.
