Clinton Connell Appointed New Executive Director

I am very pleased to announce that Clinton Connell will be assuming the role of Executive Director for BC Crane Safety, effective June 1, 2020.

Clinton has spent the last 15+ years providing leadership at the strategic level for Eagle West Crane and Rigging. Clinton has also served on the BC Crane Safety Board for 9 years as well as holding a position on the BC Trucking Association Board of Directors for nearly 12 years. Clinton’s background covers entrepreneurial business management, leadership effectiveness and project management.

We are fortunate to have someone of Clinton Connell’s calibre and results-driven experience to take over the lead at BC Crane Safety. He has the right blend of vision and leadership to expand our programs and services and advance BC Crane Safety as we continue to serve our stakeholders provincially and internationally. His strategic management experience, visionary leadership and his proven financial and analytical acumen will serve to continue and leverage the Association’s international certification reputation and accomplishments.

In his role as Executive Director, Clinton will continue our mission to professionalize crane operator trades through certification and licensing as we expand our role as the recognized certification authority for BC and continue to support recognition of certifications from outside our province.

I am pleased to welcome Clinton as he takes over the role from Fraser Cocks who will continue to support BC Crane Safety during the transition.

Please join me in welcoming Clinton Connell to the BC Crane Safety team.
