Following a long and successful career in the petroleum industry, President and CEO of the Canadian Independent Petroleum Marketers Association (CIPMA), Tricia Anderson, has decided to leave CIPMA effective June 30, 2017.
Anderson joined CIPMA in 2011 following her role as Director of Government Relations and Communications at Suncor Energy. Throughout the course of her tenure at CIPMA, Tricia enhanced CIPMA’s longstanding reputation of being a strong voice on behalf of its members, and helped shape policy decisions at every level of government.
“As a direct result of Tricia’s guidance, today CIPMA’s voice is stronger than ever,” said Peter Kilty, Chair, CIPMA Board of Directors. “She has consistently played an integral role in helping us make great strides in advancing the fuel marketing sector, and I am confident our industry will continue to benefit from her valued leadership. I wish her the very best in her next ventures.”
Jennifer Stewart has been announced as the new President and CEO of CIPMA. Stewart has worked alongside Anderson for the last four years, and has a strong knowledge of the sector, in addition to trusted expertise in both the government relations and communication fields.
Stewart was recently recognized as a ‘Forty under 40’ recipient by the Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce, was named one of the ‘Top 25 Influencers’ in the Nation’s Capital by Ottawa Life Magazine, and was a finalist for Ottawa’s Female Entrepreneur of the Year.
“I look forward to continuing to work with CIPMA, and assuming this role,” said Stewart. “Tricia has truly advanced the stature and reputation of the association, which I intend to continue.”
