After 6 years with The Refinery Leadership Partners, we are both excited and saddened to announce that our CEO, Terry Dillon, will be moving on to join Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) as CEO. 


Terry is a two-time Olympian, successfully competing at numerous world events as a rower for Great Britain.  He brought this passion, tenacity, care for team, along with thought leadership and innovation, to lead The Refinery.  With the team, he strengthened our ability to accelerate the development of our client’s leadership to enable their full potential in a rapidly changing business world.   As CEO of Rowing Canada, Terry will bring both his commitment and decades of experience to a sport he loves, leading an organization that is responsible for creating a safe, thriving environment for people to learn and enjoy the sport of Rowing across Canada. It also has under its wing the responsibility for running the high performance programs that put Canadians on podiums at World Championships and Olympic Games, so we have high expectations from Terry to bring future medals home to Canada!

As we look to 2017, we will be working through our succession plan for Terry to further our purpose of Evolving the World of Work.  We are excited about 2017 and look forward to continuing – and growing – our many successful partnerships. 

To family, friends, colleagues, partners, we wish you all a safe and happy Holiday Season!
