WINDSOR, N.S. - Eleanor Beaton of Windsor and Charlotte Murray of Halifax were announced as the newest members of Invest Nova Scotia’s board of directors on Jan. 22, 2018.
Beaton is a leadership mentor, keynote speaker, journalist, podcast host and now a board member of INS – an investment fund managed by a board of independent business owners and leaders.
Murray has co-founded, coached and managed various start-ups. They will both serve four-year terms on the board.
The goal of Invest Nova Scotia, which was established in 2014, is to provide economic development incentives to projects, not directly to businesses, that are seen to advance the province’s economic growth.
“We are pleased to welcome Eleanor and Charlotte to the board, and look forward to working alongside them as we continue to help innovation thrive in our province,” Kenneth Deveau, chair of Invest Nova Scotia said in a press release.
One of the board’s main goals is to support the One Nova Scotia Commission goals, which was formed following the One Nova Scotia – Now or Never Report, also known as the Ivany Report.
“Eleanor and Charlotte have made their mark on the business community, here in Nova Scotia and across Canada,” Business Minister Geoff MacLellan said in a press release. “Their experience in both leading businesses and helping businesses grow, will help guide Invest Nova Scotia as they continue to fund innovative projects to grow our economy.”
