Introducing our co-CEO
I am delighted to share that Heidi Levitt has officially returned to Levitt-Safety as our co-CEO. Heidi has been successful as the President of our NLT mining and Digital communications business for the last 12 years, focusing on the R&D, manufacture, and sales and servicing of a suite of rugged networking equipment and software, and the trusty Northern Light® orange cap lamp to resellers and end users in the global world of mining and tunnelling. Prior to that, she worked alongside me at Levitt-Safety as the VP of Sales and Marketing.
Heidi and I will each focus on key components of the business to continually add value to Levitt-Safety and our key stakeholders. As co-CEO, Heidi will be assuming areas where her core strengths and passions lie – looking over the customer experience through sales, marketing and customer service. As a natural communicator with a killer instinct, we can’t wait to have Heidi back interacting with our customers.
We also look forward to embracing Heidi back into the day-to-day operations of the Levitt-Safety organization and benefitting from her relentless pursuit of excellence, her personable approach and her dedication to customer satisfaction.
Heidi has a long history of mentorship and the empowerment of women in business. She’s been involved with organizations such as the Young Presidents’ Organization, The Mining Suppliers Trade Association, and she serves on private and not-for-profit boards.
In our diverse world where equality matters, I am proud to work for a company that is majority owned by women, has a majority of women on its board of directors, has male and female co-CEOs and an executive team that is almost half women.
My sister and I grew up seeing how much my father cared about the safety industry and the Levitt-Safety business. That passion is rooted deep in both of us. And to each of us, this is more than a job, but rather the opportunity to make Canada a safer place to live and work. The fact that we get to do it together, is the icing on the cake.
This is another exciting step in our journey to make Levitt-Safety Canada’s premier provider of all things safety. Thank you for joining me in welcoming Heidi back. You can connect with either of us on LinkedIn as per below and you can read all about our growing culture here.
