The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) has named Paul Myers as its new Chair of the Board of Directors. Myers is the president of Pacific Canbriam Energy and is a 35-year veteran of the oil and natural gas industry with experience in North America, Europe, and West Africa.
CAPP also named Jon McKenzie as Vice-Chair and successor to the Chair. McKenzie is the president and CEO of Cenovus as CAPP Vice-Chair. He has more than 30 years of financial and operations experience, mostly in the Canadian oil and gas industry. He has been at Cenovus since 2018 and was an integral part of the 2021 strategic combination of Cenovus 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,” stated CAPP president and CEO, Lisa Baiton, “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 also thanked outgoing Chair Craig Bryksa, president and CEO of Crescent Point Energy, for stewarding the CAPP over a two-year tenure “during a time of leadership change and organizational transformation,” and recognized outgoing Vice-Chair Jeff Tonken, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Birchcliff Energy, for his contributions to CAPP and the industry.
“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,” stated Baiton.
