John Scarfe, CEO of Points Athabasca, retired from Points Athabasca on March 1, 2022.

John had served in leadership roles with Points Athabasca since 2007 and President and CEO since 2014. John brought a wealth of knowledge that includes decades of experience and close ties to Northern Saskatchewan to his role in overseeing the company. John steered Points Athabasca through a long and difficult downturn in the uranium market, which significantly impacted the company’s operations. Under his leadership, the company weathered the ups and downs and started new business lines and partnerships, including the highly successful QM Points partnership that employs many Athabasca residents in the 5-year Gunnar cleanup project today and the restart of the Wollaston Lake road project. John’s passionate commitment to Points Athabasca’s vision of “Building Capacity” is well known and has helped directly impact the lives of many people in the region.

Lyle Bouvier has accepted the CEO position. Lyle joined Points Athabasca in 2016. Through his years in the VP Corporate Services role, Lyle is strongly positioned to lead Points Athabasca through this phase. “It has been an honour to serve as CEO of Points Athabasca and I want to offer my sincere thanks to our employees whose hard work and dedication to ‘Building Capacity’ has gotten us through a difficult period in the market, but also leaves us well poised for a strong performance in the coming years,” says John. “I have worked with Lyle for a long time and I’m confident he will be a strong leader through this transition.”

Please join us in thanking John for his leadership and his many contributions to Points Athabasca.
