ACEC is pleased to announce the hiring of Claude Paul Boivin as its new President and Chief Operating Officer. Claude Paul assumes the office on December 3, succeeding five strong years of leadership from our departing President, Tim Page.

Before joining ACEC Claude Paul worked in a wide variety of fields, from international development, special events management and the performing arts, to public administration and professional associations.

For more than 16 years, Claude Paul held key positions with the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), including regional director for West Africa and senior advisor to the President. While at IDRC, he lived and worked in Africa and travelled extensively.

Claude Paul also has extensive experience in working with volunteers.

Since 1991 Claude Paul has been the Executive Director and Registrar for the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association, a professional organization that represents the interests of 7,000 veterinarians across the country and directs the profession’s various certification programs.

In joining ACEC Claude Paul is “impressed by the direction you are taking and the commitment you have made to deliver value to member firms. Both messages are very clear to me from my reading of the ACEC’s Strategic Plan and from this year’s Action Plan of Chair Andrew Steeves, P.Eng. ACEC is a well-run national organization with a strong and confident sense of where it is going and how it intends to get there. I am looking forward to learning in greater depth about the issues of most importance to member firms and member organizations across the country and to working to achieve the strategic plan objectives the national Board of Directors has clearly established for the years to come.”
