TORONTO, Monday January 10 2022: Comtech Fire is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Scott Marks to our Board of Directors. As a member of our board, Mr. Marks will assist in representing our membership and ensuring the successful direction of Comtech Fire Credit Union.

Having served as a Toronto Fire Fighter for 29 years, Mr. Marks retired in 2010 at the rank of Captain/Acting District Chief. During his career in the fire service, he was active in his union and served from 2002 to 2010 as President of Canada’s largest local fire fighter union, the 3,000-member Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association, IAFF Local 3888. During his tenure as President his team negotiated and resolved important outstanding issues left from the amalgamation of the City of Toronto including, retiree health benefits, shift schedules and promotional issues.

In 2010, Mr. Marks was appointed by International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) General President Harold Schaitberger to oversee its Canadian Operations. Working out of the IAFF Canadian Office in Ottawa, he was responsible for directing IAFF staff, the Canadian Legislative Program, Canadian Policy Conference and other initiatives to ensure the needs of the IAFF’s 27,000 Canadian members were met at every level. Under Mr. Marks the IAFF welcomed Montreal Fire Fighters back into the IAFF in 2017 and its Canadian Office now rolls out service in both of Canada’s official languages.

Mr. Marks retired from IAFF in September 2021 and presently serves on the Board of Directors of Muscular Dystrophy Canada. In addition, he also serves on the Sponsors Corporation Board of OMERS, representing the retirees.

"We are delighted to welcome Mr. Marks to Comtech Fire Credit Union’s Board of Directors,” said Comtech Fire Chair of the Board, Michael Neely. “His extensive management experience and board expertise are an asset to our organization and will ensure we continue to deliver on our mandate. With his contribution and insights, our members can feel confident they are being well represented by their board and the individuals who take on the important tole of ensuring their financial interests come first.”
