  • CLBC Board of Directors Announces New CEO

    by Alan Ross | Feb 14, 2017
    After an extensive cross-Canada search, the Board of Directors of the BC Courthouse Library Society (CLBC) is very pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Kensi Gounden as the Society’s new Chief Executive Officer to take effect at the end of May 2017. 

    Mr. Gounden will replace Ms. Johanne Blenkin who is departing to pursue new opportunities after 12 years of excellent service to the Society.

    Mr. Gounden joins CLBC from the Law Society of British Columbia where he was a member of the senior leadership team responsible for Standards, Professional Development and Practice Advice.  Mr. Gounden was called to the Bar in 1991.  He worked in a general practice before joining the Law Society in 1998 as a Professional Conduct Lawyer.  Over the next 18 years his responsibilities expanded to include the management of Professional Development, Practice Advice and Practice Standards.  He led task forces which developed the Law Society’s continuing professional development program and created mandatory courses for sole practitioners and small firm lawyers.  He is committed to using the library’s resources to assist lawyers in giving the best quality of service to their clients and to provide better access to justice for individuals.
