At this week’s SIMSA Board meeting, Ritu Malhotra was elected as SIMSA’s new Vice Chair commencing after our AGM on June 3, 2021. At that time our succession plan dictates that Rob Tebb’s term as Chair ends, Eric Lamontagne switches from Vice Chair to Chair, and then Ritu becomes Vice Chair (and in two years becomes Chair).
Ritu is President of March Consulting.
An accomplished business leader with experience in engineering, leadership and board governance; Ritu is currently the President of March Consulting Associates Inc. (March) and has been with March for close to seven years. In addition to being the Chief Executive Officer of March, she also has the overall responsibility of all operations, which include leases and contracts, IT, accounting and human resources departments. Over the years, she has developed a combination of technical expertise, management and communication skills, which has helped her to establish excellent relationships with clients, both internal and external.
Ritu serves on the University of Saskatchewan Board of Governors where she Chairs the Human Resources and Land and Facilities’ Committees. As of May 2019, Ritu began serving on the Board of Directors of the Saskatchewan Industrial & Mining Suppliers Association (SIMSA) and is Chair of the Governance Committee. In addition, Ritu also serves on the Women in Mining/Women in Nuclear Saskatchewan Committee.
SIMSA is grateful and appreciative of the time and commitment required to fill these positions. Without great leadership, SIMSA would struggle.
