Board renewal process continues

WINNIPEG, MB., February 25, 2021 - The Winnipeg Football Club Board of Directors is pleased to announce the election of two new directors and thank three outgoing directors for their years of service.

Bill Baines, Kenny Boyce, and Chris Lorenc have retired from the board as part of the scheduled retirement of directors. Their retirements were effective January 1, 2021. "The contributions from Bill, Kenny and Chris throughout their years of service has been significant," said board chair Dayna Spiring. "It was a great joy to have the opportunity to celebrate the 107th Grey Cup win alongside them."

Frank Robinson and Garth Waddell have been elected to the board effective February 1, 2021 through the public nomination process. Nominees were considered from past applicants as well as new applications submitted.


Frank Robinson became a member of the board in February of 2021 and also serves on the Blue Bomber Alumni Board of Directors.  Over the course of Robinson's 10-year CFL career, he won two Grey Cups Championships (1984 with Bombers, 1986 with Tiger-Cats), and was a two-time Eastern All Star as well as serving as a CFL Players Association Representative. Robinson worked for companies such as Coca-Cola (Director of Regional Sales), AT&T, and Tim Hortons (Owner/Operator) and is currently owner of a Chicken Chef restaurant location in Winnipeg. Robinson holds a Bachelor of Art in Economics from Tulane University, and after finishing his professional football career, he has remained an avid Blue Bombers supporter and an active member in the Winnipeg community.   

Garth Waddell is Vice President of Exchange Income Corporation, a diversified acquisition-oriented public company with operations focused in aerospace and aviation services, equipment and manufacturing. Waddell holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Manitoba and is a Chartered Professional Accountant. He has held leadership positions with several Winnipeg-based public companies during his 35-year business career with experience in accounting, finance, operations oversight, mergers and acquisitions, and strategic planning. Waddell has volunteered at numerous athletic events over the years including the Pan Am Games and the Brier. Waddell has had a life-long affinity for the CFL and especially for his hometown Blue Bombers.
