A message from our executive director and chair of the board

Blog - Sept. 10, 2018 - By Glen Murray, David Runnalls

“It’s bittersweet to announce I have resigned from my position as executive director at the Pembina Institute. While I’m looking forward to a new challenge, the Pembina Institute is a very hard place and team to leave. I have so enjoyed working with this passionate group tackling Canada’s most critical energy and climate issues. I have been proud to lead the Pembina Institute and leave with a great deal of confidence in our committed board, strong management team, and dynamic and creative staff. I will continue to be one of Pembina’s biggest cheerleaders, and wish the organization continued success.”

“We thank Glen for his time at the Pembina Institute, and the leadership he has shown. In his time here, Glen has been a great accelerator for the organization and its staff. By strengthening internal processes and empowering staff to think bigger and with a more national focus, we’ve begun a period of growth under his leadership and are excited to continue this trajectory. As we engage in a process to identify our next leader, we have appointed Simon Dyer as interim executive director. Simon has been with the Pembina Institute for 13 years in a variety of leadership roles, including most recently as deputy executive director. The Board of Directors is grateful to Simon for stepping into this interim role as he and our talented staff continue the important work of leading Canada’s transition to a clean energy future.”
