“After an extensive and meticulous process, we are excited to work with someone of the calibre of Jeanine,” said CAMM board chair Jonathon Azzopardi. “She has what it takes to promote and advocate with passion but also with focus. As the two Associations move forward, Jeanine will rely on her background in manufacturing and the skills she has developed managing other industry organizations to help move us to the next level.”

Lassaline-Berglund brings over 30 years of work experience to the associations, having started her career in manufacturing in the skilled trades, rising through various positions in leadership and expanded responsibilities in operations.
