Leadership 5

Maureen Shuell, Executive Director

With a background in communications with political and not-for-profit organizations, including12 years leading communications for the Canadian Urban Transit Association, in 2012, she founded RendezVous Communications focusing on media and government relations; issues management; and, not-for-profit management with a lens on the sustainable mobility, infrastructure and clean technology sectors.

After extensive industry consultations, she identified the need for a holistic approach and coordination of the emerging connected, automated, shared and electric (CASE) mobility sector. There was a disconnect among industry leaders with respect to the broader infrastructure framework of this fast-growing autonomous transportation ecosystem. This led to the founding of Autonomous Transportation Canada in 2019.
