Phonse Delaney, Executive Vice President, Chief Information Officer, Fortis Inc.
Phonse Delaney’s father worked at the paper mill in Corner Brook. His father’s work fuelled his curiosity for engineering and taught him the value of hard work. As a new electrical engineering graduate, Phonse started working with Newfoundland Power in 1987 and soon became Vice President of Engineering and Operations. From there, he took a lead role with FortisAlberta before heading the company as President and CEO. He’s back on the rock now, leading all things tech for Fortis. And to think – his three-decade-long career started with a boy in Corner Brook, following his curiosity and learning from his dad.
