The Canadian Propane Association (CPA) board of directors appointed Shannon Watt the organization’s president and CEO.

Watt joins the CPA after serving as vice president of sustainability at the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada for more than seven years where she oversaw the chemistry sector’s Responsible Care commitments as well as the association’s environment and health policy advocacy and internal corporate sustainability initiatives.

“On behalf of the CPA board of directors, I am pleased to announce that we have found an exceptional individual to lead the association,” says Nancy Borden, chair of CPA’s board of directors. “Shannon brings over 17 years of association experience, championing environmental sustainability issues with a proven ability to influence decision-making processes at all levels of government. The board is confident that Shannon’s technical knowledge, combined with her innovative and people-first approach to communications provides her with the skill set to effectively advance the mandate of the CPA.”

Allan Murphy, CPA’s senior vice president of government relations, has acted as interim president and CEO during the past several months.

“This is a crucial time for the industry,” Watt says. “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.

“For me, it is an enticing challenge to work with the CPA members and develop a compelling vision for the sector and a road map for its future,” she adds. “I am excited by the prospect of working with the CPA team and leveraging my industry and government network to enhance the profile of the propane industry and implement a strategy that ensures its long-term competitiveness.”
