The Canadian Propane Association (CPA) board of directors appointed Shannon Watt as president and chief executive officer, effective April 18.
Watt joins the CPA after serving as vice-president of sustainability with the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada for more than seven years.
“This is a crucial time for the industry. Federal and provincial governments are developing ambitious goals and comprehensive policies on climate change and the economy without a full understanding of the role of the energy industry or the propane sector,” said Watt.
Bilingual in English and French, Watt holds a Master of Science in Meteorology from the University of Guelph and a Bachelor of Environmental Life Sciences from Queen’s University.
The board thanked Allan Murphy, CPA senior vice-president of government relations, who has acted as interim president and CEO during the past several months.
