Interim president appointed at Joule
August 21, 2019
OTTAWA – With the announcement that Joule CEO Lindee David is leaving the subsidiary to pursue new opportunities, an interim president has been appointed.
Deborah Scott-Douglas (pictured) will assume the role, effective immediately, while maintaining her current position as vice-president of innovation at the CMA.
Deborah brings to the position many years of experience in the non-profit, academic and for-profit sectors. She’s held senior positions at both the CMA and Joule, as well as in academic and special libraries, publishing, health science accreditation and product management.
As the CMA pursues opportunities to create synergies in innovation across the enterprise, Deborah will be well positioned to lead the design and implementation of strategies and projects in support of CMA 2020, the association’s strategic plan.
Both the Joule and CMA boards expressed their deep appreciation to Lindee for her commitment to the physician community since Joule’s creation in 2015. She played a pivotal role in setting up the new subsidiary for success, increasing the usage and visibility of a number of member products and services, including Physician Leadership Institute courses and CMAJ.
Under her leadership, Joule also became a connector and curator of innovation products and services that help improve physicians’ lives.
