Pres­i­dent & CEO THE CO­GENT GROUP INC.

An in­vestor and gov­ern­ment re­la­tions spe­cial­ist, Penny Lipsett spent much of her ca­reer in pol­i­tics and busi­ness, moving from Par­lia­ment Hill to Xerox Canada to her own con­sult­ing prac­tice. She is a mem­ber of the board of di­rec­tors of MBNA Canada, On­tario Place Cor­po­ra­tion, the Speed River Track and Field Club (as­so­ci­ated with the Univer­sity of Guelph) and was ap­pointed to the LCBO Board in May 2007.

“I learned about per­sonal re­spon­si­bil­ity and that re­la­tion­ships are a key to suc­cess.”

“En­sur­ing that in­take num­bers in univer­sity are suf­fi­cient, that ap­point­ments and pro­mo­tion are not to­ken, that there is a suf­fi­cient num­ber of women to make a dif­fer­ence on every team and that mentors are in place.”
