Woodbine CEO Eaves stepping down March 31


ETOBICOKE, Ontario – Woodbine Entertainment Group announced Thursday that its president and chief executive, Nick Eaves, will be leaving the company March 31.

Eaves, 46, has worked at WEG for more than 20 years, as president since 2006 and as CEO since 2010.

“As I look back on the last 20 years, I am very proud to have been part of a team that was able to accomplish so many things for WEG and in our industry,” Eaves said. “Looking forward, I have confidence that the organization is pointed in the right direction and know the current leadership team will continue to grow and improve on the model we have developed.”

Following the end of Eaves’s term, WEG chairman Jim Lawson will assume his duties on an interim basis while the board of directors seeks a candidate to fill the position.

“Nick has been with WEG for over two decades and in that time has been a big part of its evolution and success,” Lawson said.
