Robert Cassels and Walter E. Farnam have resigned from the board of directors, according to a release.
“We welcome the appointment of Greg Hannon to the board of Kingsway,” Spencer Schneider, audit committee of the board of directors, said in the release. “There is important work ahead for the company and the addition of an experienced market participant will assist the company greatly.”
Hannon has been a vice-president and director of Oakmont Capital Inc. since 1997.

The Co-operators and the University of Guelph have launched The Co-operators Centre for Business and Social Entrepreneurship.
The centre, dedicated to preparing new business leaders committed to community engagement and sustainability, will be supported over the next five years by a Cdn$400,000 contribution from The Co-operators.
“Business students and faculty will work with social purpose organizations on a broad range of collaborative initiatives that have tangible benefits for everyone involved,” according to The Co-operators. “Along the way, students will gain management and economic experience, create and launch new ventures and develop a sense of social responsibility and leadership. There will also be opportunities for faculty and graduate student research.”
