The Lending Cupboard has announced the appointment of Lori Shatto to the role of Executive Director.

With current Executive Director Dawna Morey having announced her retirement earlier this year, the search was on to find the ideal replacement.

Board Chair Amanda Blair said Shatto is absolutely the right candidate to take the organization forward.

“Lori comes to us with a wealth of experience in the not-for-profit sector, including time at the United Way (Perth-Huron, ON) and prior to that as the Marketing/Fund Development Coordinator here at TLC,” said Blair.

“In addition, she has significant education that will be an asset to our organization including a Professional Certificate in Not-For-Profit Management from Western University, as well as near completion of her Certified Fund-Raising Executive (CFRE) designation,” she added.

Shatto said she’s very excited to be able to build on the fabulous work the team has been doing.

“I’m very passionate about making sure people have access to health care, and what The Lending Cupboard does is definitely a component of that,” she explained. “The other piece for me is the people. They become a part of your life, and they care about you, and you care about them. I’m so excited to be coming back to the TLC family."
