Noble Chummar has been reappointed to the board of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, according to an announcement by Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP, where he is a partner.

Chummar’s reappointment to a third term of up to five years was on the advice of the Premier of Ontario and the Minister of Finance, the announcement said. He is among seven other provincially appointed board members under the leadership of LCBO chairman Carmine Nigro.

The LCBO is an Ontario government enterprise with 9,621 employees, and is one of the world’s largest buyers and sellers of beverage alcohol, the announcement added. It has a near-monopoly of alcoholic beverage sales in the province.

In 2015, Chummar was named to the National Order of Merit of France, for his work in promoting French culture and business interests in Canada. He is a graduate of The London School of Economics and Osgoode Hall Law School and a certified member of the Institute of Corporate Directors, the announcement added.
