Ross Batson retires and William Dodds named Chair

Released: June 30th, 2015

It is with mixed feelings that we announce the retirement of Ross Batson as Chair and Board member at our recent Annual General Meeting held May 13, 2015. Ross has been a valuable addition to the Board since Oak Trusts inception in May 2004 and all of the stakeholders of Oak Trust would like to thank him for his many years of skill and dedication to the Company.

Our new Chair Bill Dodds commented that “everyone who knows Ross knows of his professionalism and passion to constantly contribute. These traits exemplified Ross’ involvement and contributions at Oak Trust over the years and have earned our respect for his counsel as Chairman and friend”.

Coincidental to Ross’ resignation Oak Trust is pleased to announce the appointment, by their Board of Directors at their May 13, 2015 meeting, of William Dodds as Chair of Oak Trust Company effective immediately. Chris Scarff, CEO and President, acknowledges Bill's experience as Vice Chair of the Board and before that, his role as Managing Director and Vice President for Thomvest Seed Capital and previously Vice President at Thomvest's associated company, The Woodbridge Company Limited. "We welcome Bill in his new role as Chair and look forward to his contributions going forward in Oak Trust's growing business”.
