Doug Picklyk (pictured) is joining Energy Manager Canada as its new editor, succeeding Peter Saunders, who is stepping into the role of editor for another magazine within the Annex Business Media family.

“We wish Peter all the best in his new role with Canadian Consulting Engineer,” says publisher Anthony Capkun. “At the same time, we heartily welcome Doug to Energy Manager Canada and wish him all the best in his new role.”

Doug is no stranger to the Energy Manager team, as he is transitioning from BIoT Canada—the intelligent buildings infrastructure magazine—which is also among the brands published by Annex under the Electrical Business Magazine banner.

His responsibilities include oversight and production of Energy Manager Canada’s newsletters and magazines, as well as any special initiatives, such as webinars, podcasts, etc. This is in addition to his duties as editor of HPAC Magazine.

“I look forward to sharing insights into the best practices and novel approaches being used to maximize energy efficiency in the built environment, a critical necessity as our nation aims to hit new emissions targets by 2030,” says Doug.

He will also serve as a brand ambassador in the market, as he attends and reports from various industry events.
