“Mr. Manley has played a key role in CAE’s growth and success, first as a Member of our Board of Directors and now as its Chair, and I am thrilled to see him honoured with an ICD Fellowship Award,” said Marc Parent, CAE’s President and CEO. “Mr. Manley’s wisdom and vast experience in the public and private sectors have been instrumental in creating the right conditions for CAE to thrive. In the boardroom, Mr. Manley fosters a climate of trust and support, empowers the management team to act and encourages the type of bold action that has been the hallmark of CAE’s success.”
Mr. Manley joined CAE’s Board of Directors in 2008 and helped instill superior governance practices that have allowed the company to significantly expand and post record financial results during his tenure. Beyond financial results, Mr. Manley has championed Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting, including diversity and inclusion.
