BCLC Appoints Lynda Cavanaugh as Interim CEO
January 20, 2021
The British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has named Lynda Cavanaugh as its interim president and chief executive, as previous interim leader Greg Moore steps down from the position on January 22.
Cavanaugh will assume the role while Jim Lightbody continues his medical leave to undergo cancer treatment and recovery.
In November 2020, Moore, who had been serving as interim president and CEO since August 2019, provided notice of his resignation to pursue a new opportunity in the private sector.
Cavanaugh, a graduate of L.V. Rogers High School in Nelson, B.C., joins BCLC following an extensive career in public service in the province. BCLC says she has managed and led complex organizations that provided important services to communities across the province, and brings vast experience in leadership, finance, technology, infrastructure and policy.
Between 2011 and 2020, she served as Assistant Deputy Minister in the Ministries of Attorney General and Public Safety and Solicitor General.
Given the temporary nature of her role and the impacts of COVID-19, Cavanaugh will be based from her home in Sidney, B.C. When it is safe to do so, she will travel as needed between BCLC’s head office in Kamloops and its Vancouver office.
