Dear LUTW family,

Light Up The World (LUTW) Board Chair, Jean-Claude Fouéré, is very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Murray Lytle as Executive Director effective May 19, 2020. Dr. Lytle is an accomplished professional engineer who has spent his career in the mining and oil and gas sectors in locations throughout the world. He lived for ten years in Latin America and is fluent in Spanish. Murray is a published author. He completed his PhD with a focus on Corporate Social Responsibility. His most recent position was as a Member of the National Energy Board of Canada. “I am thrilled to be joining an organization that has made a real difference in the lives of the people it serves. Together with LUTW staff, Board, and dedicated volunteers, I look forward to taking LUTW to its next level.”

Murray will be replacing Christoph Schultz, who decided earlier this year, after diligently serving LUTW for over 12 years, that it was time to move on to new challenges in his life. Christoph leaves LUTW with our most heartfelt thanks for his leadership, unwavering energy and strong dedication to LUTW mission. Christoph will serve as an advisor to Dr. Lytle to ensure a smooth leadership transition.

Please join us in wishing both Christoph and Murray the very best in their respective new endeavours.

Murray is actively working with LUTW staff and the Board to structure a plan to carry Light Up The World through the current Pandemic and beyond. Stay tuned for more updates soon. We will let you know how you can participate and contribute in bringing energy and better opportunity to those in need. Many thanks to all of those who have shown support to LUTW during these challenging times. We look forward to sharing a brighter and well-lit future with you and with the communities we serve.

Jean-Claude Fouéré
Board Chair
