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.”
