The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) has named Johanne Mullen, a partner with PwC Canada, as chair for the 2023 board of directors.

Directors come from both the public and private sectors.

“I’m delighted to welcome our incredible roster of board members, representing a who’s who of experts involved in the procurement, financing, development, design, construction and operations and maintenance of infrastructure across Canada,” Mullen said.

“These directors will play an active role in helping evolve and deliver on the Council’s new mission and vision as governments across Canada continue to make historic investments in infrastructure and seek to resolve ongoing labour and inflationary challenges.”

Five members left the board, including former chair Mark Bain of Torys LLP, Elisabeth Hivon of Meridiam Infrastructure North America, Steve Nackan of Aecon Concessions, Steve Small of Parsons Corporation, and Beata Swist of National Bank Financial.

Bain spent six years as chair of the CCPPP board of directors.

“It’s been a tremendous honour to serve for more than 20 years on CCPPP’s board, including the last six years as chair,” he said, announcing his decision to step down. “The P3 market and the council have grown and matured in tandem.

“The council has provided me with a fascinating opportunity to observe and help shape policy discussions on public-private partnerships, champion changes needed to evolve the model and learn from the best in the business across Canada and globally.”
