SaskEnergy is pleased to announce that, after a nationwide search, Mark Guillet, who has been acting in the role since February 2022, has been formally named President and Chief Executive Officer.
“On behalf of SaskEnergy’s Board of Directors I would like to congratulate Mark Guillet on his formal appointment as President and CEO.

He has done an exceptional job at positioning SaskEnergy for a successful and sustainable future.”
With over three decades at SaskEnergy, Guillet has dedicated his career to the company.

In 2020, his portfolio expanded as he became Executive Vice President of Stakeholder Engagement, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary. This role positioned Guillet with a cross-section of responsibility, including: SaskEnergy’s Legal and Regulatory Compliance, Environment, Indigenous & Community Engagement, Communications, and Land functions.
