WINNIPEG — NFI Group Inc., a bus and coach manufacturer and company involved in electric mass mobility solutions, announced that NFI President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Soubry will return to his role, effective August 2, 2022, following a temporary medical leave. Paul will participate in NFI’s 2022 Q2 financial results call on August 3, 2022.

On May 3, 2022, it was announced that Paul would be taking an immediate temporary medical leave of absence after being diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm, and that NFI’s Board of Directors had appointed Brian Dewsnup, President of NFI Parts, to be acting President and Chief Executive Officer of NFI Group during Paul’s absence.

Mr. Soubry has been cleared by his doctor to return to work. Under the guidance of his healthcare team, Mr. Soubry has taken active steps to address his health, and a plan is in place going forward to ensure his continued wellbeing.

“It is great to be back at the helm of NFI as we prepare to scale up our production to capitalize on our growing backlog and strong order activity. While certain supply and parts availability challenges continue to impact NFI, our team’s production and delivery plans are advancing well, which we will discuss in detail during our second quarter results call,” said Paul Soubry, President and Chief Executive Officer, NFI. “I want to thank my fellow Board Directors, Brian Dewsnup, and the entire NFI executive team for their leadership during my absence, and the entire NFI team for their continued dedication to our mission of leading the ZEvolution to electric mobility.”

“I am thrilled to see Paul’s dedication to his healthcare plan and the progress he has made in such a short period of time. I welcome him back to his role and look forward to working closely with Paul as NFI executes on its strategic initiatives and delivers upon its financial targets in both the near- and long-term,” said Brian Tobin, P.C., OC, Chair of NFI’s Board. “On behalf of the Board, I want to extend sincere gratitude to the entire NFI management team, with particular thanks to Brian Dewsnup for taking on the interim leadership role during Paul’s absence.”
