President & CEO, CMHC
Evan is President and CEO of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, a role he has held since 2014. Evan leads a team of housing experts who share a single mission: to help Canadians meet their housing needs. As CEO, Evan is especially passionate about growing leaders, and the merits of both a diverse and inclusive workforce and the mental health of his colleagues.
Evan and his executive team have led transformative change at CMHC — helping it regain ground as a high-performing, innovative, and ambitious organization with a vision of being at the heart of a world-leading housing system. CMHC has led the design of Canada’s first-ever National Housing Strategy, a Government of Canada priority that will benefit hundreds of thousands of Canadian families.
Evan worked at some of the world’s largest investment banking firms in Canada and the United States before joining the Bank of Canada in 2010. He also helped launch a private entrepreneurial venture, Side Launch Brewing Company, named 2016 Canadian Brewery of the Year.
He is an avid cyclist, a voracious reader, and a lifelong downhill skier. Evan wants to speak French better, lose his airline status, and one day write a book — in English.
