Len Shrimpton, P.Eng., Promoted; Leads Five APEGGA Departments

Len Shrimpton, P.Eng., has accepted a senior management position created under APEGGA's restructuring. Mr. Shrimpton, who has worked for the professional association for more than a decade, is now Director, Internal Affairs, the senior manager responsible for five departments with primarily non-regulatory roles.

In announcing the promotion, Executive Director & Registrar Neil Windsor, P.Eng., said: "Len has served APEGGA well during his tenure, both as Assistant Director, Registration, and most recently as Director, Professional Development. We are confident that his qualifications and experience make him well qualified to accept this additional responsibility as part of the senior management team, as well as the new challenges it represents."

Mr. Shrimpton, a chemical engineer who graduated from McMaster University, has an MBA from the University of Alberta. He began working with APEGGA in 1991. In 1997 he was promoted to set up and lead the new Professional Development Department, which continues to administer APEGGA's mandatory continuing professional development program and to deliver professional development to university students, members-in-training and professional members.

Before starting with APEGGA, Mr. Shrimpton managed the western region for Pyrotenax, A Division of Phillips Cables. Before that, he worked his way through a number of management positions with CIL Inc. He started with CIL in Cornwall and Hamilton, Ont., transferring to Montreal and finally to Edmonton.

As Director, Internal Affairs, Mr. Shrimpton is responsible for Geoscience Affairs, Professional Development, Corporate & Member Affairs, Administration and Editorial Services. His counterpart on the regulatory side of the Association is Deputy Registrar Al Schuld, P.Eng., who's responsible for the Registration, Compliance, Professional Practice, Special Projects and Examinations departments.

Said Mr. Shrimpton: "It's quite a diverse portfolio so I'll be relying on the talents of the managers in each area to help define and implement agreed upon goals and actions. My role is one of encouraging and supporting our staff, and removing the roadblocks to achieving the goals we agree upon."
