CALGARY – The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) has announced leadership changes for its board of directors.
Pacific Canbriam Energy president Paul Myers is the new board chair and is a 35-year veteran of the oil and natural gas industry with experience in North America, Europe and West Africa, a CAPP release said.
Cenovus president and CEO Jon McKenzie is the new vice-chair as well as successor to the chair. He has been with Cenovus since 2018 and played a key role in the company’s recent strategic combination with Husky Energy.
“I am thrilled to welcome Paul and Jon as they take on an increased role with CAPP. They are paragons in the Canadian energy industry. As chair and vice-chair they will bring strong strategic advice, operational know-how, and corporate governance to the organization. This comes at a time when Canada, and the world, is at a unique crossroad when it comes to the conversation around energy security, affordability, and the climate. I look forward to working with them both as we continue this journey,” CAPP president and CEO Lisa Baiton said in a statement.
Crescent Point Energy president and CEO Craig Bryska is the outgoing chair and Birchcliff CEO and board chairman Jeff Tonken is the outgoing vice-chair.
“Jeff has been a stalwart supporter of CAPP and we are thankful for the immensity of his commitment to our organization over many years in many different board roles. While Jeff is stepping down as a member of CAPP’s board of directors, we look forward to continuing to work with him in his role as chairman of Birchcliff and welcoming incoming Birchcliff CEO Chris Carlsen as a Governor and director of CAPP,” Baiton said.
