Welcome to our new Executive Director – Lex van der Raadt!

Posted on November 17, 2020

We are thrilled to welcome Lex van der Raadt onboard as our new Executive Director! If you have been involved with Green Calgary in the last few years, there’s a good chance you have already met Lex at some point. Starting out as the Communications and Community Outreach Coordinator back in 2016, Lex has been with the organization for almost half a decade. Known for his passion for sustainability and friendly personality, Lex has held multiple leadership positions in the last four years.


“This year has been hard for many,” Lex said, “But Green Calgary’s commitment to Calgarians and community remains the same, to offer affordable climate and environment education to all. I hope under my leadership that Green Calgary can serve even more communities, individuals, classrooms, and businesses in 2021 and beyond.”


With a proven track record of effective leadership and in-depth understanding of Green Calgary’s operations, we are looking forward to bringing new programs and services in the new year under Lex’s leadership.
