Lisa Browne, Top 50 CEOs, Atlantic Business Magazine
Lorraine Michael, MHA, St. John’s East-Quidi Vidi
I am delighted to recognize Lisa Browne, Chief Executive Officer of Stella’s Circle, whom Atlantic Business Magazine has recognized as one of the Top 50 CEOs for two years in a row.
Stella’s Circle provides services to adults who face many barriers to fully participating in their community, including everything from mental health challenges, homelessness, criminal justice involvement and long periods of unemployment.
Lisa joined Stella’s Circle in 2015 having spent nearly a decade managing multiple portfolios as a director with Eastern Health. Lisa has served on boards including for The Rooms, the Community Foundation of NL, and Memorial University. She’s also an Associate with the Harris Centre and serves on the board for Food First NL.
Her recognition is a tribute to her commitment to social justice and community advocacy, which are at the heart of the social enterprises of Stella's Circle.
I ask all honourable members to join me in congratulating Lisa Browne one of the top CEOs in Atlantic Canada again this year.
