Sarnia, ON – The County of Lambton Community Development Corporation (CLCDC) Board of Directors has named Dr. Katherine Albion the next Executive Director of the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park (the Park).

Dr. Albion, who has served with the Park in a number of capacities since 2008, has accepted the position effective today (January, 2, 2018) and replaces Tom Strifler, who will retire after a short transitional period.

Dr. Albion received her Ph.D. in Engineering Science from The University of Western Ontario (Western University) in 2007, where she also received her Bachelor of Engineering Science, Chemical & Biochemical Engineering.  She has received numerous awards over her career, including the Award of Excellence from The Canadian Academy of Engineering Energy Pathways Task Force in 2010 and the Western Engineering Award of Recognition from the Faculty of Engineering in 2015.

"The Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park is fortunate to be able to transition from one highly effective and visionary leader to the next," said Board Chair Mike Bradley.  "The Board thanks Tom for his professionalism and insight over the last four years and offers its sincerest congratulations to Katherine, who it looks forward to working alongside in the months and years to come."

The Western-Sarnia-Lambton Research Park was created in November 2003 with the inception of the County of Lambton Community Development Corporation, owned by the County of Lambton.  The Research Park manages and operates the property owned by the CLCDC.  It boasts 270,000 square feet of leasable area.  In addition to its labs and research space, it is home to a number of high profile tenants including Nova Chemicals, Enbridge, the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership, and WorleyParsons.
