The Government of Canada has launched an open, transparent, and merit-based selection process to seek applications from diverse and qualified Canadians from across the country to fill the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) through a Government of Canada Notice of Appointment Opportunity.
“The Government of Canada is committed to the successful completion of the Gordie Howe International Bridge,” said Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure. “Through this selection process, we are looking for a talented and experienced CEO to provide strategic guidance, oversight and leadership to WDBA and its board of directors so that the Gordie Howe International Bridge project moves forward expeditiously and efficiently.”
The government is looking for candidates with senior-level executive leadership experience, expertise in the delivery of major infrastructure projects, proficiency dealing with senior levels of government as well as public-private partnerships, among other applicable knowledge, skills and abilities.
WDBA is a not-for-profit Canadian Crown corporation that manages the procurement process for the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of the Gordie Howe International Bridge between Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan. WDBA is also responsible for overseeing and managing the construction and operation of the new crossing.
André Juneau is currently serving as the interim CEO of WDBA. The Government is now seeking to permanently fill this position through an open, transparent, and merit-based selection process.
