“Jack’s time at CBC has covered an eventful period in our history, and throughout, his talents and experience have helped us to meet many financial challenges and positioned CBC and our Revenue Group well for the future,” said Kirstine Stewart, executive vice president, CBC English Services in the release. “We know that talented people like Jack often look for new challenges and wish him well in the next chapter of a long and storied career. I’d like to thank him for all that he’s contributed over the last three years.”
