Brian Bentz

President & CEO

Brian is the President and CEO of Alectra Inc., the largest municipally-owned utility by customer base in Canada.

Alectra Inc., through its regulated utility, Alectra Utilities Corporation, provides power and related services to almost one million electricity customers in Ontario’s Greater Golden Horseshoe Area. Alectra Inc. also provides innovative energy solutions to consumers through several unregulated subsidiaries including Alectra Energy Solutions Inc.

While Brian played a major role in the creation of Alectra through a merger of three Ontario electric utilities and the acquisition of a fourth, his expertise in utility consolidations was also demonstrated on several occasions in his previous position as the President and CEO of PowerStream.

His leadership was instrumental in the growth of that utility from its creation following the merger of three local electricity distribution companies in Markham, Richmond Hill and Vaughan in 2004. He was also a driving force in the acquisition of Aurora Hydro in 2005, the 2009 merger with Barrie Hydro and the 2012 partnership with the Town of Collingwood in the ownership of Collus PowerStream.
