In October 2018, the Board voted to have Philip Corke become Chairman of Canadian Helen Keller Centre (CHKC). He began his service on the CHKC Board in 2012 and continues to work in partnership with his fellow directors to advance CHKC’s strategic vision for enhanced deafblind services and expanded housing.
Philip is a graduate of North-western’s Kellogg Schulich MBA program and received his Honours Bachelor of Commerce from McMaster University. After graduating from McMaster, he was recruited into Maple Leaf Food’s management trainee program where he rotated through various divisions and roles helping to establish new businesses and departments. Philip later moved through various management roles within the poultry division, driving efficiencies while expanding capabilities. Then, after graduating with his MBA, Philip moved into his family’s telecommunications business to help expand their various product lines and interests.
When he is not working in telecommunications or serving his community, Philip loves spending time with his wife and three young kids. He enjoys being outdoors and going fishing, playing tennis or golf, and skiing. Philip also takes great pleasure in projects and the challenge of building. As an example, he recently completed a communications teleport build out at his company’s commercial property.
