Biography

Alice was appointed senior vice-president and chief corporate officer of Cameco in July, 2011.

She's been with Cameco for more than 25 years in increasingly senior leadership roles and has gained a wealth of experience from her diverse responsibilities. As chief corporate officer, Alice provides executive oversight for human resources, corporate social responsibility, communications, community investment, government relations, safety, health, environment, quality, regulatory relations and business technology services.

Prior to this, she was vice-president safety, health, environment, quality (SHEQ) and regulatory relations (2008 to 2011). She led the company through an increasingly complex regulatory world while ensuring the company’s SHEQ processes and systems received the focus required as they underpin our goal of operational excellence and enhanced communications and relationships with the company’s regulators.

As vice-president investor, corporate and government relations (2005 to 2008), she was responsible for managing Cameco’s communications programs and guiding the company’s efforts in building and enhancing relationships with its major stakeholders. In addition to these vice-president roles, Alice has experience in marketing, corporate development and strategic planning.

Before coming to Cameco (and one its predecessor companies, Saskatchewan Mining Development Corporation), Alice held part time positions as a sessional lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan, an economics instructor at SIAST, a CRA auditor and a marketing consultant for a small, local organization.

Alice is currently a member of the Executive Committee of the Saskatchewan Mining Association board, the Northern Advisory Board of the International Centre for Northern Governance and Development, the Executive Committee as well as Chair of Governance Committee of the Canadian Nuclear Association board, and a mentee in Catalyst's Women on Board Mentoring Program.

She has also served as a member on various committees for different organizations including the Canadian Nuclear Association, World Nuclear Association, Uranium Saskatchewan, and Canadian Standards Association. The focus of the committees ranged from nuclear communications, nuclear standards and uranium market analysis.

In 2012, Alice was named as one of SaskBusiness's 2012 Women of Influence.
