Brentwood has a new board, strategy and a fresh new look.

The new broad is made up of 12 alumni members and four community members to govern the organization.

“We had so many interested applicants; there were many difficult decisions to make. We spent a lot of time interviewing people, reading resumes, and getting to know candidates,” Supervisor Mark Walton said. “I can’t express my gratitude enough to the many people who applied and for those who have a passion for addictions care in this community. What I heard loud and clear is that as a community, we want to Brentwood to succeed – and we can do that together”.

Chairing the Brentwood Board will be Dr. Sonja Grbevski, who also serves as Vice President of Mental Health and Addictions at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare.

“I am honoured to have been selected as the Chair of the Brentwood Board of Directors. Brentwood has been an advocate for Windsor-Essex providing services to citizens struggling with various types of addictions in this community for many years,” Grbevski said. “As a member of this community, I hope my input and my commitment will help Brentwood Recovery Home be prepared to face the challenges towards recovery from addictions and continue to move forward in a positive way. I want to thank Mark Walton for his leadership over the six months.”

Board members include:

  • Sonja Grbevski –  Chair
  • Zane Handysides – Vice Chair
  • Monica Staley Liang – Treasurer
  • Criss Ann Ellis-Sandre – Secretary
  • Norma MacDonald – Director
  • Darin Baker – Director
  • William Thibodeau – Director
  • Klaas Van Wieren – Director
  • Greg Labord – Director
  • Donna Ryan – Director
  • Ken Courtnay – Director
  • Mark Caron – Director
  • Ervin Keczem – Director
  • Bryan Marshall – Director
  • Janis Cramp – Director
  • Priyanka (Priya) Philip – Director

Next steps for the new Board will be hiring an Executive Director and executing the new strategic plan, including its new mission, vision and values.

In addition to the new board, Brentwood has also undergone a brand makeover.

Following community and alumni consultation, the chosen new logo demonstrates a fresh start for the organization. In its most symbolic terms, the two trees can be seen as the same tree in different stages, sharing space and supporting one another; much like the care
and support that is offered at Brentwood to all people in various stages of their recovery.
