Meet Our Executive Director

Renée Charron

Renée began her career with the Federal Public Service in 2013. She first fulfilled strategic advisory roles alongside various Assistant Deputy Ministers before working in trade development for creative industries.

In 2017, Renée began volunteering for Shelter Movers in Ottawa. During this time, she had the opportunity to connect directly with the organization's clients and volunteers, which gave her a greater understanding of the pressing demand for this service. Renée left public service in 2020 to commit full-time to the organization, where she began the expansion project to serve survivors in the Greater Moncton Area. In March 2022, Renée moved to Moncton to oversee this expansion. Shelter Movers Greater Moncton launched the following January and, with the help of its volunteers and local partners, has been offering a much-needed service to survivors of abuse.

With an existing passion for the creative industries and a newfound love for New Brunswick, in August 2023, Renée was selected to be the Executive Director of Excellence NB, a non-profit association whose mission is to promote economic growth and cultural transformation within New Brunswick.
Renée received a bachelor’s in French Literature and Social Work from the University of Ottawa.
