REGINA, SK: The Board of Directors of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) today announced that after a competitive search process, Scott Hennig of Edmonton, Alberta has been chosen to lead the organization as its next President & Chief Executive Officer.

The Board voted unanimously to appoint Hennig, who will assume the role effective January 1, 2019.

“Scott is by far the best choice to lead the CTF to new heights,” said Adam Daifallah, Chair of the Board. “Scott has dedicated most of his adult life to the CTF, starting as a donor, then in 2005 as Alberta Director, National Communications Manager, and finally, as Vice President, Communications from 2012 until now. During this time the CTF’s visibility has rapidly increased, social media reach has exploded and we have achieved new highs in CTF supporter numbers. He is loved by staff, respected by the media and feared by politicians. We are looking forward to great things from Scott in his new role.”

Hennig expressed his gratitude at being chosen and promised to continue growing the CTF and making it the most effective and important voice in Canada fighting for lower taxes, less government waste and more accountability from public officials.

“The CTF is today in the strongest position it has ever been. My job will be to make us even more effective, wider reaching and more high profile while adapting to the changing media and public policy landscape. I look forward to those challenges and to working with our world-class team,” Hennig said.

Daifallah also thanked outgoing President & CEO Troy Lanigan, who decided to leave the organization after 26 years to take on new challenges.

“We all thank Troy for his tremendous years of dedication and service to the CTF and wish him well with his next challenge,” Daifallah concluded.
