Mr. Reed has worked closely with CCAF's community over the past four years as its Vice-President responsible for performance audit and oversight.

Prior to joining the OAG, Mr. Reed spent more than a decade in environmental positions in the petroleum industry, with wide ranging responsibilities related to regulatory and public policy development, strategic environmental planning, risk communication, issues management, and environmental auditing.
