TORONTO — Mark Romoff will be stepping down as president and CEO of the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) effective May 31.
Recently celebrating his 10-year anniversary with CCPPP, Romoff has led the organization through a time of unprecedented growth.
“During his tenure, Romoff earned the trust and confidence of governments at all levels across Canada, Indigenous communities and the private sector, establishing CCPPP as the collaborative organization of choice to raise awareness, acceptance and greater adoption of the public-private partnership model,” states a release issued by CCPPP May 6.
In addition to promoting Canada’s P3 track record nationally and internationally, Romoff is known for elevating the CCPPP’s annual conference into a “must attend” industry event, establishing the council’s Daily News Clippings, launching its social media presence and the monthly Candid Conversations series.
Romoff said his decision to leave was a difficult one.
“I am especially proud of what our strong and dedicated team accomplished, positioning the council as the go–to organization on P3s for governments, industry, the media and the research community both at home and abroad,” said Romoff in the statement. “The council is a vibrant, unique and much valued place where leaders in the public and private sector can work together to find innovative solutions to the most pressing infrastructure challenges facing Canadians. Our strong and engaged team will continue this momentum, with planning for the 29th annual conference this November already underway with the much–appreciated support of our stakeholders.”
A search for the council’s next CEO is underway and is being supported by the international search firm Boyden.
