Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC), a national accrediting body for the engineering technology and applied science profession, has appointed Richard Stamper as its new executive director. Stamper will officially join TAC on July 4, 2016.

Most recently serving as manager of member services for the Ontario Road Builders’ Association (ORBA) and formerly the manager of business development for the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT), Stamper brings two decades of business development experience to the role along with a track record for achieving corporate goals and garnering significant results through relationship-building.

“We are delighted to have Richard on board as he is not only familiar with the engineering technology and applied science profession through his previous work with OACETT, but is well versed in growing business through the fostering of relationships with partners and stakeholders,” said TAC board chair Peter Portlock.

Since launching full operations in the spring of 2015, TAC has completed accreditations of engineering technology and applied science programs at Georgian College, Cambrian College and Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and has numerous accreditations planned for the months ahead.

Incorporated in 2013, TAC accredits engineering technology and applied science programs at post-secondary educational institutions.
