Sharon Clark-Koufis Joins Head Office Staff in Toronto

Several members across the country have already met (at least virtually) Sharon Clark-Koufis, SAC’s new Manager of Membership and Stakeholder Services who joined the association staff on January 15.

In her new role, Sharon handles the day to day business of membership needs and requirements and becomes our hands-on person for important services such as Tender Alerts and Young Professionals. She will also work closely with outside stakeholders in the construction and business communities to ensure that these important groups continue to appreciate the value of surety bonds.

If you haven’t met Sharon yet, feel free to reach out; either by email at, or by telephone at 905-677-1353 ext. 202.
