“Suzanne is an accomplished leader who brings a wealth of risk management and financial experience and expertise to our board of directors,” said Lowry Kline, non-executive chairman of the board. Labarge is the former vice chairman and chief risk officer of RBC Financial Group, where she served in a variety of roles over her 25-year career there. She also served the Canadian government as an assistant auditor-general and as deputy superintendent of policy for the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada.
She currently serves on the board of governors for McMaster University, and has previously served as director and chair of the audit committee for Novelis and as a member of the board of the Bank of China in Beijing. Her term on the Coca-Cola board will expire in 2010.
