Effective immediately, Doug Ewing, a two-year veteran of British Columbia’s procurement body for public-private partnerships, is assuming the role of vice president for projects, Partnerships BC said in a statement.

The role was previously filled by Clark until her appointment as chief executive of Partnerships BC effective October, according to a spokesperson.

Ewing had previously served as assistant vice president for energy and post-financial close matters, a role in which he worked with Partnerships BC’s clients to help them manage the design and construction of their infrastructure projects.

Ewing joined Partnerships BC in 2009 from the Vancouver Olympic and Para-Olympic Committee, the body that planned the city’s 2010 Winter Olympic Games, where he served as project manager and programme director.

Founded in 2002 as a provincially owned corporation, Partnerships BC helps the Western Canadian province deliver public-private partnerships. As of last year, it has delivered 35 projects worth C$12.5 billion (€9.5 billion; $12.6 billion) to British Columbians, according to provincial estimates. The organisation has 42 employees.
