Edmonton, Alberta –
Your Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Mark Hoosein will take on the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) role, starting January 9, 2023.
“The selection committee was extremely pleased with Mark,” says John Digman, Board Chair. “We believe that he is the perfect fit for the organization and will make a great success of the role.”
Hoosein comes to ACSA from Civida (formerly Capital Regional Housing) in Edmonton, where he served as Chief Operating Officer. He is passionate about health and safety and has made it a focus of his work throughout his career. Hoosein brings experience with safety, construction project management, governance, policy development, strategic execution, and government and industry relations.
“I am humbled and honoured to join the Alberta Construction Safety Association and to continue the fantastic and very important work the team provides to our members and the industry,” says Hoosein. “I thank the board for their trust in naming me to this position and am excited to begin work with our team.”
Hoosein recently completed his term as President of the Alberta Public Housing Administrators Association and served as a member of the Government of Alberta’s Housing Technical Advisory Committee. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Alberta and a Master of Business Administration from Royal Roads University.
Since the departure of the former CEO in June 2022, Chief Operations Officer Tammy Hawkins has served as interim CEO. “As we expected, Tammy has done an excellent job of fulfilling dual roles,” says Digman. “Mark’s experience, combined with Tammy’s operational leadership, will enable us to deepen our capacity to advance ACSA’s vision of Lives lived safely.”
“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank ACSA staff for continuing their excellent work during these past six months. We look forward to all we can accomplish in support of workplace health and safety through education and other initiatives in Alberta’s construction industry,” Digman concludes.
