(#17, 2016) CITY MAN­AGER, CITY OF VAN­COU­VER

The Col­lab­o­ra­tor John­ston, who qui­etly wielded a lot of in‹uence as deputy city man­ager for years, moved de ni­tively up the power list when he was named city man­ager in 2016. He’s now put his stamp on city hall, calm­ing the waters in­side and out with his more col­lab­o­ra­tive style and his strate­gic move to hold meet­ings with for­mer city plan­ners who had be­come out­spo­ken crit­ics. It’s John­ston who drives the city’s e orts to be more green, in­clud­ing the con­tro­ver­sial zero-emis­sions-by-2030 build­ing plan, some­thing that he gets ku­dos for in­ter­na­tion­ally, if not lo­cally.
