Andre Juneau has taken over as the chief operating officer of the Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA), providing leadership to the organization while Michael Cautillo is on leave.
“Mr. Juneau has accepted a position as Chief Operating Officer (COO) with WDBA to lead the senior leadership team with the important work that we have to do,” said Mark Butler, director of communications for the WDBA. “WDBA’s Board of Directors has assigned the CEO’s authorities to the COO while our CEO remains on a leave of absence.”
Juneau had originally served on the board of directors of the WDBA, and has resigned his post to take on the COO duties. Juneau helped create the federal department of infrastructure in 2002, and was named the department’s first deputy minister. In 2004, he played a key role in negotiations for the distribution of federal gas tax monies to municipalities.
Michael Cautillo stepped away from his position in late August to deal with a personal matter. At this time, there is no indication as to when Cautillo will return to his duties as CEO.
