CBSR Announces New Executive Director – Leor Rotchild
Canadian Business for Social Responsibility (CBSR) is proud to announce, after a candidate search process that uncovered a number of high quality applicants, we have selected Leor Rotchild as our new Executive Director.
Leor was selected to lead CBSR’s next era of growth and transition based on his diverse background as a CSR leader in Alberta’s energy sector, CEO experience with a B-Corp that he co-founded and most recently, with an energy transition initiative led by a national environmental NGO. You can see more of Leor’s impressive background on his LinkedIn profile.
A Message From Leor Rotchild:
“More than 20 years ago, CBSR was launched to help Canadian companies catch up with the leading corporate social responsibility thinking from around the world. But today, the challenges have grown even more complex, business models in all sectors are changing rapidly, and trust in institutions has fallen even lower.
Amidst this uncertainty, nearly 200 countries found consensus and agreed on a global vision for what the world will look like in 2030. The arrival of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement clearly define the global agenda for the next decade. The question is no longer where do we go from here but how do we get there.
That is why I am excited to be leading one of the most trusted and influential organizations driving business responsibility in Canada. Leadership in this space today means piercing through all the divisiveness and influencing the Canadian cultural landscape while championing an economic vision that has the Sustainable Development Goals at its core.
If you are a senior sustainability leader, then your work is cut out for you. You are expected to be a systems thinker, futurist, innovator, connector, and revenue generator. But you are not alone. CBSR is here to support you and connect you to a valuable network of peers armed with the leading research summarized for your needs and the tools to help you deliver value at the intersection between business and society.
As a new Executive Director, I would love to hear from you and learn how CBSR can support your needs. Please fill out this short survey, which will influence our new strategic direction. I look forward to meeting you and hearing from you.”
