Edmonton Global shareholders appointed five new members to their board of directors, including Enzo Barichello as incoming Board Chair. Enzo is co-head of Bennett Jones' Government Affairs and Public Policy practice and former managing partner of the Edmonton office. He is a passionate advocate for economic growth and the outstanding quality of life in the region.
Enzo stated upon his appointment, “I’m honoured to have been selected as chair of this important regional economic development organization. After meeting the team and all of the new and returning board members, I’m confident that Edmonton Global is in very good hands and that we will be able to achieve our economic development goals for the benefit of our region."
Enzo says the current state of the regional, provincial, national and global economic landscape, including the drive to net-zero and the intense geo-political risk has created a particularly challenging set of circumstances. "There has never been a more acute need to work cooperatively and creatively in the region to attract capital and export our products, services and expertise. Now is an opportune time to truly super charge our economy and take our region to the next level."
The purpose of Edmonton Global is to radically transform and grow the economy of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. It is a not-for-profit corporation founded by 14 municipalities that make up the region.
