The Oxford Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Ron Cougler has been hired as the new Executive Director of the Oxford Community Foundation. Ron and his family have lived and worked in Oxford County for 40 years and he has family roots on his wife Elaine’s side that go back generations. Ron’s varied background include an HBA degree from the Ivey at Western University, a CMA degree, a 30-year career teaching high school students, as well as a 10-year career as a software consultant and documentation specialist. He has served on many community boards, and has been active in several local organizations–the Southwest Ontario Tourism Board, the Lions Club, the Cancer Society, the United Church of Canada, CCAC and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation.
Ron is looking forward to working with the committed, volunteer OCF Board, helping to increase the visibility of the Oxford Community Foundation, to maintain its operational sustainability, to encourage endowment programs, and to increase the grant and leadership activities.
