Lynda Cavanaugh Appointed New Interim President & CEO at BCLC



Effective January 22, 2021, Lynda Cavanaugh will assume the role of BCLC’s Interim President & CEO while Jim Lightbody continues his medical leave to undergo cancer treatment and recovery.

In November 2020, Greg Moore, serving Interim President and CEO, provided notice of resignation to pursue a new opportunity in the private sector. His last day with BCLC is January 22, 2021.

Cavanaugh joins BCLC following an extensive career in the B.C. public service, where she managed and led complex organizations that provided important services to communities across the province. She brings vast experience in leadership, finance, technology, infrastructure and policy.

Between 2011 and 2020, Cavanaugh served as Assistant Deputy Minister in the Ministries of Attorney General and Public Safety and Solicitor General.

Given the temporary nature of her role as Interim President and CEO, and due to the impacts of COVID-19, Cavanaugh will be based from her home in Sidney, B.C. When it is safe to do so, she will travel as needed between BCLC’s head office in Kamloops and its Vancouver office.

BCLC conducts and manages lottery, casino, bingo and online gambling on behalf of the province for the benefit of British Columbians. In 2019/20, BCLC generated more than $1.3 billion to support provincial programs, communities, charitable and community organizations.
