Gus Kotsiomitis, VP Commercial Banking (London/St. Thomas) for RBC Royal Bank has been recognized by WIL Employment Connections for outstanding community leadership in facilitating the economic integration of immigrants and newcomers in London region. Gus was presented with the 2012 WIL Award at our Annual General Meeting held on June 21, 2012.
Thanks to funding provided by RBC Royal Bank, the London Middlesex Immigrant Employment Council (LMIEC) is connecting successfully employed skilled immigrants with job-seeking newcomers in our community. RBC has provided $33,000 to establish the LMIEC Peer Mentorship for Immigrant Employment program. The program will facilitate 25 Peer-to-peer matches in London-Middlesex. It is anticipated that this initiative will lead to the direct employment of 20 skilled immigrants in our community.
