Management changes at the Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF)

After serving for three years as Director of Collision Programs with responsibility for the management of CCIF, Leanne Jefferies will be leaving AIA Canada at the end of August 2016. Leanne has been instrumental to the Forum’s success, driving consistently relevant content, enhanced sponsorship value and the full engagement of industry stakeholders. CCIF is now widely considered as a world-class example of industry cooperation. AIA Canada would like to thank Leanne for her time, energy and effort and for her significant contribution to CCIF and to the Association.

As a result of Leanne’s departure, Brigitte Pesant will be joining us as the new Director of Collision Programs. Her responsibilities will include leading CCIF, overseeing the Canadian Collision Industry Accreditation Program (CCIAP) and managing the sponsorships of AIA Canada’s collision industry initiatives.

Brigitte brings with her over 20 years of sales and marketing experience working for consumer packaged goods companies such as Kodak Canada, Kao Brands, and Keurig Canada where she held senior management roles in business development and trade marketing. Brigitte also worked with the Automotive Recyclers of Canada as a Business Development Director where she built relationships with collision industry sector partners and promoted the automotive recycling industry to the public, government and automotive industry.
