Admirals’ Medal Recipient for 2022: Rear-Admiral (Retired) Ian Mack, CMM, CD

Rear-Admiral (retired) Ian Mack has been recognized for his unequalled contribution to Canada in the naval ship procurement sphere.

Following his retirement from the Navy in 2007, Ian served ten years as the Director-General of Major Projects (Land and Sea) for National Defence. Since leaving the government in 2017, he has shared his international shipbuilding and project management perspectives and has authored numerous papers on related subjects.

He made great efforts to set the National Shipbuilding Strategy in place and to promote the application of complex project management principles to naval ship procurement. His leadership and vision have contributed to revitalizing the Canadian shipbuilding industry and implementing the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship and Joint Support Ship projects.

With the Canadian Surface Combatant project now well into the project definition phase, Ian’s work has set in motion the renewal of the Royal Canadian Navy for the next half-century.
