New RCI Director Meets Staff

RCI’s new Director Helene Parent held her first meeting with staff this morning. She told employees she had wanted to come to RCI, and looked forward to working with them. In her introductory statement Parent said that she would make time to talk to employees individually to hear suggestions and observations about the international service. She said she has great hopes for the future of RCI. She also added that there would be more cuts at the service.

Helen Parent has extensive experience in managing radio in the French service of our domestic radio- television service CBC/Radio-Canada, which is responsible for Radio Canada International.

Parent’s appointment as Director came suddenly on December 22, 2010. Roger Tetrault had been interim Director for the previous two years, after the departure of Jean Larin. Tetrault returns to his former position of Program Director. The position had been abolished when he became interim Director.
