CADSI Announces New Chair to Lead Board of Directors

Ottawa, 29 March 2017 – Danny Deep, Vice President responsible for General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada, has been elected Chair of the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries’ (CADSI) Board of Directors today. Mr. Deep has been a member of CADSI’s Board of Directors since 2014.

“Canada’s defence and security industries contribute substantially to Canada’s innovation agenda, economy and national security. It is my honour to chair the Association’s Board of Directors during this time of significant change and opportunity for our industry,” said Danny Deep, Chair of CADSI’s Board of Directors. “The Board of Directors and I will continue to support the association and its members to further grow and strengthen our industries in Canada and with our international allies and partners abroad.”

Danny Deep succeeds Mike Greenley, President of L3 Wescam, who served on CADSI’s Board of Directors for seven years, six of which as Chair.

“I am happy to leave the chairmanship of CADSI in Danny Deep’s capable hands, knowing that he brings to the table his time as a fellow CADSI Board member and his experience running a large Canadian-based company. With hundreds of companies in his supply chain and international exports to dozens of countries, Danny understands the value and benefit that results from larger companies and smaller ones working together to advance the Canadian defence industry. I wish him every success in his new role,” said Mr. Greenley.

“During Mike Greenley’s tenure as Chair of CADSI, he oversaw significant successes as he led the Canadian defence industry through challenging times. Most ground breaking for Canadian industry was CADSI’s instrumental role in shaping the Government’s Defence Procurement Strategy,” said CADSI President Christyn Cianfarani. “We thank Mike wholeheartedly for his committed leadership and look forward to his continued support of CADSI as one of our members.”
