On Wednesday, the Alberta Energy Regulator announced three executive vice presidents are no longer with the organization.
Carol Crowfoot, executive vice-president, strategy and regulatory division, Stacey Schorr, executive vice-president, stakeholder and government engagement and Mark Taylor, executive VP, operations division have left the AER.
The three VPs are leaving the organization at a time when the AER board is still looking for a permanent CEO after the departure of Jim Ellis late last year. Ellis, the first CEO of the Alberta Energy Regulator, was embroiled in a conflict of interest scandal while he was CEO at the regulator.
Following Ellis’ departure, the AER named Gordon Lambert as interim CEO.
Concerning the departure of Crowfoot, Schorr and Taylor, the AER said in a press release that its board of directors “will be working closely with interim CEO Gordon Lambert to ensure the AER continues to uphold its mandate to protect public safety and the environment.”
The board says it will also continue its work with the Kenney government in its review of the AER.
