When Karen Fischer first arrived in Sarnia a little over a year ago, it was for family reasons.

But with her background in business and management, Fischer’s knowledge and experience have made her extremely portable, which means as a partner in RK Fischer & Associates she continues to build business relationships throughout Canada and beyond.

As a member of the board of directors at the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce, Fischer is also giving back to our community, offering insights into best practices in business and a unique perspective.

Having built a career that has included marketing, sales management and executive roles at some of Canada’s leading telecom and software companies, Fischer is also an accomplished management consultant and educator, having recently taught digital tools at Lambton College, and before that, digital marketing Durham College just east of Toronto.

Since moving to the Sarnia-Lambton area, Fischer, who works with her husband Rudy (the “R” in RK Fischer & Associates), has increased her network connections and volunteers as a member of the Chamber’s Business After 5 committee in addition to her board duties. She is also a volunteer mentor for the Cube, the incubator program at Lambton College.

We’re happy to have her in the area and grateful for her unique contributions to the board of directors.
