Rob Lister

Introducing our 2015 Campaign Cabinet Chair

United Way Oakville is thrilled to announce Rob Lister, President & CEO of Oakville Hydro Corporation, as its 2015 Campaign Cabinet Chair.

Rob first became involved with United Way Oakville through the workplace campaign at Oakville Hydro, and has been a senior volunteer with the Campaign Cabinet for the past two years.


“Participating on the Campaign Cabinet over the past two years has been a wonderful experience,” Rob commented, “and I have been touched to see the amazing work of the 32 agencies helping those in need.”

In 2013, Rob was Chair of the Public Sector & Education Division, and over this past year he worked with France Fournier, Director of Marketing & Community Relations at Whole Foods Market, as Co-Chair of the Community Leadership Division.

Rob’s passion for helping the community combined with his leadership skills make him an ideal Chair for United Way Oakville’s upcoming campaign. With over 30 years of experience in utility and competitive entrepreneurial business leadership, Rob is also heavily involved in his community.

“Rob is a thoughtful and inspiring leader,” Brad Park, CEO of United Way Oakville reflected. “We are confident that with his expertise and dedication to strengthening the community, he will play an indispensable role over the next year.”
