Teneo, a global management consulting firm, has added Jason Kenney and Monique Leroux as senior advisors based in Calgary and Montreal, respectively.

Kenney brings more than 25 years of experience in federal and provincial elected office. He served as premier of Alberta from 2019 to 2022, and prior to that spent over 19 years as a federal member of parliament. During his time in Ottawa, Kenney led several ministries, including citizenship, immigration, and multiculturalism; employment and social development; and national defence.

“Jason’s vision and experience in public policy and business is well established. We are extremely pleased to welcome him to Teneo and for him to join our esteemed group of Senior Advisors,” said James Crossland, chairman and CEO of Teneo’s business in Canada.

Kenney is currently a senior advisor at law firm Bennett Jones and a senior fellow at think tank C.D. Howe Institute. He is a board director at ATCO, Coril Holdings, and Fairfax India Holdings Corporation.

“Companies in Alberta and Canada are being challenged today by seismic shifts in their operating environments,” Kenney said. “I am excited to be part of Teneo’s continued growth in Canada and look forward to working in partnership with the team and its clients.”
