            Rob Messervey is resigning as CAO of Kawartha Conservation this December 31—after serving since 2009.

            The decision wasn’t easy, said Messervey. “I truly enjoy my job every day.”

            During his tenure, Messervey set the overall direction for the organization through

strategic and business development planning and strongly promoted professional staff development.

            With his staff team, he led a community-based, lake-management planning process, established a climate-change strategy, promoted environmentally-sound development, established new partnerships, and enhanced customer service delivery.

            Messervey said he sees this as the ideal time for the board to steer forward under new leadership.

            In his 41-year career, Messervey worked with the Otonabee. Central Lake Ontario and Lower Trent Region Conservation Authorities, plus over 20 years with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

            He will join his wife Karen in running a native plant nursery on their property near Claremont, and will continue to be heavily involved with the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

            "Kawartha Conservation has been very fortunate to have the benefit of Rob's leadership and experience,” said CKL Councillor and Kawartha Conservation Board Chair Heather Stauble. “He is very well respected by the Board and across the Province. We are extremely sad to lose him but wish him the very best."

            The hiring process starts now.
