GTHA President & Chief Executive Officer Sara Anghel

TORONTO — The Greater Toronto Hotel Association has appointed Sara Anghel as its new president and CEO, effective November 28.

“After a thorough search process Anghel was a natural choice for the position,” says Chairman of the Board Tim Reardon. “In addition to her prior experience with associations and government, the search committee appreciated her collaborative management style and drive to bring the association to the next level.”

In her most recent position Anghel served as president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Canada since 2008. She has served on a number of national and international industry boards, including as Chair of the Ontario Region Recreational Boating Advisory Council (RBAC), co-Chair of Transport Canada’s National Recreational Boating Advisory Council (NRBAC) and president of the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA), the first woman to hold the role in its 55-year history.

Anghel has more than 25 years of experience in the realm of government relations. She has served in a number of political positions with the Ontario government, including communications, policy and chief of staff to the Minister of Northern Development & Mines and Environment, Energy, Natural Resources and Health.

In 2019, she was recognized as Woman of the Year by the Marine Retailers of America and in 2015 received the Boating Ontario President’s Award for outstanding contribution to the boating industry.
