Alice was appointed senior vice-president and chief corporate officer of Cameco in July 2011.
She's been with Cameco for more than 35 years in increasingly senior leadership roles and has gained a wealth of experience from her diverse responsibilities. In her current role, Alice provides executive oversight for human resources, safety, health, environment, quality, regulatory relations, business technology services, supply chain management, internal audit and corporate ethics. Her portfolio has included a number of different areas including corporate social responsibility, communications, community investment, government relations and investor relations.
Prior to this, she was vice-president safety, health, environment, quality 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 joining 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 Saskatchewan Polytechnic, a CRA auditor and a marketing consultant for a small, local organization.
Alice currently serves as director on a number of boards: Hecla Mining Company [HL:NYSE] (chair of governance and social responsibility committee, member of audit committee and health, safety, environmental & technical committee), Canadian Nuclear Association (chair of the board, past chair governance, human resources and compensation committee), Mining Association of Canada (executive committee and community of interest advisory panel), and Saskatchewan Mining Association (chair, audit committee, past chair of human resources and compensation committee). Alice also served on the SaskEnergy board as chair of human resources and safety committee, as a board director of the Uranium Producers of America and as a member on various committees for different organizations including the Northern Advisory Board of the International Centre for Northern Governance and Development, the World Nuclear Association, Uranium Saskatchewan, and the Canadian Standards Association. The focus of the committees ranged from nuclear communications, nuclear standards and uranium market analysis.
She is a tireless advocate for advancing women and championing inclusion in the workplace. In recognition of these efforts, she received a Catalyst Champions Business Leader award in 2021. In 2018, she was named a Diversity 50 Board Ready Candidate by the Canadian Board Diversity Council and an Alumni of Influence by the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Arts and Science.
