OTTAWA — Pierre Boucher, CEO of the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC), will leave the association on Feb. 28.
Boucher’s leadership helped to move MCAC forward on a number of important issues, including a new emphasis on innovation and technology, great progress on key advocacy issues such as the naming of subtrades and other industry practices, helping to modernize many of the operations at the MCA Canada national office, and creating a closer working relationship with MCA partners across Canada, states a release.
The MCAC executive committee has been working to develop new framework to guide the association. Tania Johnston, executive director, education and special projects, MCAC and Ken Lancastle, executive director, communications, industry outreach and innovation at MCAC, will now helm the leadership team as chief executive officer and chief operating officer, respectively.
Johnston and Lancastle will work in close partnership on the strategy and operations of MCA Canada.
“On behalf of the MCA Canada executive committee, we would like to thank Pierre for his service as MCA Canada CEO these past two years,” said MCA Canada president and chair Dave Holek, in a statement.
“Pierre brought a new and innovative perspective to the association on a number of important issues for MCAC. As Pierre moves on, we would like to wish him all the best and extend our appreciation for his hard work and dedication to the association and the industry.”
