Rod Barnard, chair of the CBAA board, commented, “The CBAA has made tremendous progress during Rudy Toering’s tenure. Its influence in Ottawa is growing, as is our ability to develop and deliver important programs like Partners In Safety.

The selection committee was unanimous in our view that Jim has the experience, qualifications and abilities to take CBAA to the next level. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.”

Facette has 18 years of experience as a senior executive in professional association management, including six years as president and CEO of the Canadian Airports Council (CAC).
