Fortius Sport & Health is proud to announce TC Carling as its next President & CEO. Carling succeeds Craig Thompson, who has held the role since shortly after the facility opened in 2013.
“Over the last six years, Fortius has grown from a pioneering start-up to an internationally-recognized facility,” says Thompson. “The team has established a powerful foundation for future growth, and it is with this knowledge I have made the decision to start my next chapter. I look forward to staying on board as a Senior Advisor to support Fortius and TC through this transition.”
Carling joins Fortius with over 20 years’ experience at Canucks Sport & Entertainment. He worked in ever increasing levels of responsibility, leading to his final role as Executive VP, Arena Operations. More recently, Carling held the title of Senior VP, Operations at GSL Group. He has a long history in sport operations, strategic communication, public and media relations and community partnerships, and Fortius is proud to welcome him to the team.
“It is with great enthusiasm that I assume the role of President & CEO with this dynamic and innovative company,” said Carling. “Scott Cousens’ vision together with Craig’s leadership, and the efforts and expertise of the team, have established Fortius as a global leader. I have a deep-rooted passion for our sports community and am fortunate for the opportunity to support athletes and teams as we carry Fortius’ vision forward.”
TC Carling assumed the new role of President & CEO as of January 1, 2020. The Fortius team looks forward to his guidance and leadership as it strives to continue to influence positive change in the sport and health sectors.
