FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | TORONTO (October 22, 2021) The Boxing Ontario Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Jay Corcoran and Jennifer Ogg as our Directors at Large, effective October 22, 2021. Both Corcoran and Ogg’s organizational experience, sport knowledge, and diverse skill sets will be crucial over this next year to lead the anticipated workload that comes on the heels of our 2020-2024 Strategic Plan and preparation for the shortened Paris 2024 Olympic Cycle. The announcement comes as past Directors, Lee Smith and Fred Ten Eyck step down after dedicating their past two years to the success of the organization.
We are grateful to Lee and Fred for their vision, diligence, and leadership. They have both grown the Business of Boxing exponentially over the years, and we look forward to their continued support on various committees. While we will miss Lee and Fred’s direction and expertise, we are pleased with the quality of candidates who emerged in our nominations process for new Directors.
