SHERRITT

Executive Director

I was part of NECO’s team as a youth entrepreneurship coordinator several years ago. I’ve always loved what the Community Futures Program has to offer to our communities and businesses, and am very happy to be part of the organization once again. Our team is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs face their challenges and turn their dreams into reality – what a great way to spend your day.

MAYNE

Services Director

My career started in 1999 (yikes!) as a FedNor Youth Intern at an economic development agency in Powassan. Three years later, I found my working home at NECO. The vast majority of time at NECO was spent in the Economic Development field where I was lucky enough to assist over 300 not for profits to secure funding. Recently, I’ve moved into the role of Services Director whereby I now have the privilege of helping entrepreneurs to make their dreams a reality. Our region is a rare gem and I have a natural curiosity when it comes to its history; finding forgotten colonization roads, old foundations and cemeteries is a favourite past time. Spending weekends at cottages in both Crystal Falls and Nipissing Village with family is another fav of mine. If you’re on your way to starting your own adventure, give me a shout, I’d be happy to help!

YOUNG

Bookkeeper Administrator

I spent many years working for a development company which gave me great exposure to how businesses work around the world.  I then moved over into the Financial Industry which allowed me to work more with individuals on their own personal goals.  Both of these places gave me the passion to become self-employed where I could support other entrepreneurs grow and succeed with their own dreams.  Through these endeavours I had the chance to work with NECO. After seeing what they do in the community and how they support entrepreneurs to achieve their goals, I knew joining this dynamic team was the right decision. As the mom of an adventurous young boy, our “downtime” consists of travelling, volunteering, camping, Scouts, and any other adventure we can find.
