The British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has announced the appointment of Lynda Cavanaugh as its Interim President & CEO while Jim Lightbody continues his medical leave to undergo cancer treatment and recovery.
In November 2020, current Interim President and CEO Greg Moore provided notice of resignation to pursue a new opportunity in the private sector. His last day with BCLC is January 22, 2021.
Before joining BCLC, Cavanaugh had an extensive career in the British Columbia (BC) public service, managing and leading complex organisations that provided important services to communities across the province.
She 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.
Due to the temporary nature of her role and the impacts of COVID-19, Cavanaugh will be based from her home in Sidney, BC. When it is safe to do so, she will travel between BCLC’s head office in Kamloops and its Vancouver office when needed.
