Although new to the role, Wiebe is not new to CRIBE. He was previously program manager for two years before joining AV Terrace Bay as business analyst. 

In October, Michael Willick accepted the position of chairman of the board of directors, replacing Frank Dottori who had held the position since the organization’s inception. Dottori will remain as a director on the board. In addition, Thunder Bay’s Douglas Murray has joined the board in the role of Director for a 3-year term. 

Don Campbell and J.P. Gladu are stepping down as directors. 

“At this time I want to welcome the new members of the board and to thank current and departing members and CEO for their important work in furthering the bio-economy in northern Ontario,” said Mike Willick, chairman of the CRIBE board. “Lorne Morrow, Don Campbell and J.P. Gladu have provided unparalleled expertise and service to our shared vision for the forestry sector and the North.” 

CRIBE, the Centre for Research and Innovation in the Bio-Economy, is an independent, not-for-profit research corporation, with $25 million in funding provided by the government of Ontario.
