The Globe and Mail reports in its Thursday, Nov. 9, edition that the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers announced Wednesday that Paul Myers, a 35-year oil and gas veteran, will take the reins as chairman on Jan. 1, replacing Crescent Point energy chief executive officer Craig Bryksa.
The Globe's Emma Graney writes that CAPP's current CEO, Lisa Baiton, stepped into the role in May, 2022, after the departure of long-time boss Tim McMillan, who stepped down after seven years at the helm.
Ms. Baiton let go three senior CAPP executives a month later. Soon afterward, in her first public statement, she said she wanted industry and governments to work together more closely to lower greenhouse-gas emissions, tackle regulatory hurdles and attract investment to help shore up global energy security.
Ms. Baiton said in September that CAPP was rebuilding its internal research and data capabilities to get back to its roots as a research-based advocacy organization. Under other CAPP leadership changes announced Wednesday, the vice-chairman role also switched, effective immediately. It is now filled by Cenovus Energy CEO Jon McKenzie. He takes over from Birchcliff Energy CEO Jeff Tonken.
