The Ontario Energy Association (OEA) will soon begin looking for a new chief executive. The association’s board of directors announced Bob Huggard will leave his position as president and CEO effective July 1.
"The OEA thanks Bob for his dedication and outstanding contributions over the past two years to the Association's membership and we wish him all the best as he embarks on his next chapter," said David McFadden, chair of the board at the OEA. "We will continue to work to shape our energy future for a stronger Ontario. Thanks to Bob's leadership the Association is in a position of strength with excellent staff, a strong board, and an engaged membership."
Representing a variety and diverse group of Ontario's energy leaders, the OEA continues to be an integral and influential part of energy policy development and government decision-making in Ontario. Bob will continue in his role through to July 1, 2021 as the OEA initiates its executive search.
"I am truly proud of our accomplishments as an Association over the last two years. We worked tirelessly to ensure the OEA's standing as an important voice for its members in the Ontario energy sector," said Huggard. "The support and encouragement I have received from the Board of Directors, members and staff is something I am truly appreciative of."
