Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia Transitioning Leadership

Executive Director Lloyd Brown to retire, John Britton named new CEO

After ten successful years of helping Nova Scotians living with dementia have better access to programs and supports; creating capacity to respond to the rising tide of dementia; and championing the need for a government response to dementia, Lloyd Brown will retire on June 26, 2019.

Lloyd became “Acting” Executive Director in 2009 and what was to be a three month commitment turned into 10 years! Not one to sit back, Lloyd has been able to create and execute a vision that has moved the organization to be an outstanding provider of services, a trusted collaborator and a strong advocate in the area of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. In short, Lloyd will leave a legacy of excellence.

On June 17, John Britton will be coming on board as the new CEO of the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia. John comes to the Society as an experienced and effective leader in the non-profit sector, having been the Executive Director at the Maritime Heart Centre, the Halifax Sexual Health Clinic, and for Muscular Dystrophy – Atlantic Canada region. Most recently, John was the Director of Strategic Initiatives nationally, for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. You can email John at

On behalf of the Board, staff and volunteers, please join us in wishing Lloyd a healthy and happy retirement and to welcome John to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia.

Andrew MacIsaac
Board President
