The CFL has picked a new leader for its board of governors, and its a familiar name.
Former Federated Co-Ops head Scott Banda has been named to be the 40th Chair of the Board of Governors.
“It’s an honour to serve as Chair and join the Governors, the stewards of this great league,” Banda said in a release from the CFL.
“I’ve long admired their commitment to Canadian football, the communities where CFL football is played, and the country, which cherishes both the CFL and the Grey Cup. And I look forward to working with them and Commissioner Randy Ambrosie to help the CFL grow and move forward.”
Banda stepped away this spring from Federated Co-Operatives Ltd., capping a 20-year career that was marked by significant growth and evolution for the organization under his leadership. He first joined FCL in 2002, serving in various roles, including Vice-President Corporate and Legal Affairs, before becoming CEO in 2010.
