The City of Mississauga has selected Shari Lichterman as the new Commissioner of Community Services effective May 16, 2020. Lichterman has been the Director of Recreation for the City since 2015. She replaces Paul Mitcham, who will transition to become the new City Manager on May 16, 2020.

“I am pleased to welcome Shari to the City’s Leadership Team as Commissioner of Community Services,” said Paul Mitcham, Commissioner, Community Services. “I have had the pleasure of working with Shari for the past few years and am pleased to have her leading our Community Services team. Shari brings with her extensive background and experience in recreation, programming, finance, performance management and strategic partnerships. She will be a great asset to an already strong leadership team. She is well-positioned to work with Council, the community and staff to continue to deliver quality and excellence through all lines of business provided by the Community Services Department.”

Mississauga City Council passed a by-law to appoint Lichterman to the position at its Council meeting today.

In her new role as Commissioner, Lichterman will report to into the City Manager’s Office and will oversee the following divisions: Culture; Fire and Emergency Services; Library; Parks, Forestry and Environment; and Recreation.

These business areas provide programs, services and opportunities to meet leisure and recreational needs, support education and learning, provide unique cultural experiences, offer diverse green spaces for residents to enjoy and deliver emergency planning and fire services.

“I am proud to work for the City of Mississauga and am committed to continuing to provide residents with the programs and services that enrich their quality of life,” said Lichterman. “In my new role, I look forward to working with all Community Services staff, the City’s Leadership Team and working closer with Mayor and Council.”

Prior to joining the City of Mississauga, Lichterman served as Vice-President of Eastern Operations at Canlan Ice Sports Corp. In this role, she had financial and operational responsibility for ice and multi-sport facilities in Ontario, Quebec and the United States. Prior to her experience at Canlan, Lichterman was an owner and the Director of Operations for Firland Management LLC, a consulting and management company specializing in ice arenas and recreational facilities.

Lichterman has a Masters Certificate in Municipal Leadership from the Schulich School of Business at York University, a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Carleton University as well as designations as a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Management Accountant.
