Robert Allan Ltd. appoints Mike Fitzpatrick as president

(VANCOUVER, British Columbia) — The board of directors of Robert Allan Ltd. has appointed Mike Fitzpatrick as the new president with Ken Harford remaining as a managing director during this succession process.

Fitzpatrick joined the company in 2003, was a key member of the initial employee ownership group and has been a driving force in the company’s growth. He will be supported in his new role by Rollie Webb as senior vice president.

In a statement to shareholders, Fitzpatrick stated, “I am honored to be offered this opportunity to help lead Robert Allan Ltd. into the future. If I retire at the age of 66, it will be the 100th anniversary of this incredible company that Rob’s grandfather started in 1930. One of you will be sitting in the president’s chair when this occurs but my goal for the coming years will be to ensure the company is even stronger on its 100th anniversary than it is now.”
