WASAGA DISTRIBUTION REFRESHING STRATEGIC PLAN
February 5, 2020
Across Ontario, local distribution companies are looking for ways to improve services for their customers. While some communities have chosen to consolidate their services, in 2017 Wasaga Beach Town Council voted unanimously to retain and grow the organization.
As we look towards the future, Geosands Inc. (“Geosands”), the holding company for Wasaga Distribution and Wasaga Resource Services, has chosen to undertake a strategic planning process that will guide the organization for the next three to five years. This process will be highly collaborative, and will provide ample opportunity for our Staff, Board Members, Town Council, and the Wasaga Beach community to provide input into the strategic direction of the organization.
At the end of this process, Geosands will have a strategy that reflects the needs of our community now and in the future. It will guide resource allocation and capital development and identify new opportunities for the organization to grow and bring additional value to the community.
“Ontario’s energy sector is in a period of transition,” says Keith McAllister, CEO of Wasaga Distribution Inc. and President of Geosands Inc. “However, this is also a period of exciting change, where technological advancements and changing customer needs have opened up an opportunity for our organization to innovate and to consider new ways in which we can build on past successes.”
Over the next six months, Geosands will be working with our consultant, StrategyCorp, to develop a refreshed strategic plan that is financially viable, reflects the needs and expectations of our community, and identifies opportunities and initiatives for Geosands to more effectively deliver services for our customers.
We encourage everyone to share their ideas on how we can position Geosands for long-term success. Further details will be made available for how you can participate shortly.
