Over the past few months, we’ve had plenty of cause to celebrate – expanded locations, new vehicles, attending events like Party 4 the Planet and of course, hiring our first CEO. But Modo also celebrated two milestones among our team.

HAPPY RETIREMENT, MICHAEL!
In March, Modo saw its first-ever retirement when long-time Member Care coordinator, Michael Anstead left his position. If you had the pleasure of speaking to Michael either as a member calling in or at one of our events, like the AGM After-Party, you’ll remember his friendly smile and easygoing nature.
While it was a bittersweet celebration, we’re happy we could celebrate Michael’s longtime service, compassionate touch and absolute dedication to Modo.

Our staff and board gathered for a mid-afternoon celebration to toast Phil’s work for Modo.
THANKS FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP, PHIL!
In May, we toasted Phil Baudin, Modo’s former Executive Director, now Finance Director. With Nathalie Baudoin on board as our new CEO, Phil has moved into his new role to focus on maintaining the healthy financial growth he brought to Modo. Under Phil’s savvy leadership, Modo has seen tremendous expansion of our fleet and membership, as well as strong growth in profits, and we’re thrilled to have him with the co-op for a few more years.
Said Modo Board Chair Joel DeYoung: “For the last five years, Modo has been guided through a period of transition and growth under the leadership of our Executive Director Phil Baudin. Modo’s current success and financial health are a direct result of the discipline, professionalism and superb leadership style that Phil brings to his work. Please join me in congratulating Phil for the fantastic results he has achieved during his years of service as our Executive Director.”
