IQALUIT, NUNAVUT: Suspicion, distrust prompted Ell to quit
- Suspicion, distrust prompted Ell to quit
IQALUIT, NUNAVUT - The former president of the Qikiqtaaluk Corporation says he quit the development organization because he was tired of accusations of wrongdoing. Jerry Ell quit last week, saying during the five years he was at the corporation's helm, his activities were investigated twice.
The latest was an audit this past spring.
Ell says he was cleared of any wrongdoing both times, but the suspicion was hard to take.
"There's always an element of trust between the board of directors and senior management," he says. "I can deal with criticism from outside. When that criticism comes from inside, it's more difficult to swallow, and certainly that influenced my decision to go."
Ell says the investigations weren't the main reason he decided to leave.
He says personal events, including the recent death of his father, forced him to re-think his future.
Ell says he realized it was time to move on to other challenges.
