Michael McSweeney, who retired from his position as president and CEO of the Cement Association of Canada (CAC) in April of this year, has been named the new CEO of the Ontario Road Builders’ Association (ORBA). In welcoming its new CEO, ORBA also announced the departure of Bryan Hocking, who held the for the past four years.

“On behalf of the ORBA Board, we are pleased to have Michael as our new CEO at this pivotal moment in our sector’s history,” said ORBA chair Kevin Machej. “Ontario road builders find themselves at a crucial moment in a time when all three levels of government are committed to the largest infrastructure investment and spend that our province has ever seen.”

McSweeney joined the CAC in 2007 and led the Cement Association as its president and CEO for 12 years. At CAC, he worked closely with civil and environmental groups to foster better understanding of the role that cement and concrete play in developing resiliency in communities across Canada.

“I am excited to work with ORBA’s members, the Ontario Asphalt Paving Council, our allies, and all levels of governments to help deepen the understanding of how crucial it is for Ontario’s government to fund the maintenance and expansion of Ontario’s road and transportation network,” said McSweeney.
