Dear WESN Community,
We are pleased to introduce Martin Addison as the new Executive Director of the West End Seniors’ Network. He will be taking up the position starting on Tuesday, November 9, 2021.
With over 40 years as a West End resident, Martin is keen to be giving back to the community. Martin is no stranger to WESN. His father was involved in WESN singing activities. He intends to hit the ground running and being an active listener, collaborator and voice for WESN.
Martin has served in civic and not-for-profit organizations over the past several decades. His prior roles include Executive Director in the mental health sector, Chief Development Officer and Chief Operating Office for St. John Ambulance (BC), and Senior Fund Raiser at Villa Cathay Care Home Society.
Martin’s mix of leadership in the areas of administration, finance, volunteer development, and fundraising will benefit WESN as we move forward.
Please join the board and staff in welcoming Martin to the WESN family. We will announce a meet and greet opportunity within the next couple of weeks.
Thank you to Kari Kesslar for her leadership during the transition period as Interim Executive Director.
WESN Board of Directors
