To learn more about the 2024-25 Executive Committee, check out the bios below: 

Chair – Steve Anema, Vice President, TNT Crane and Rigging Canada
Steve has been involved in the crane and rigging industry for more than 16 years all with TNT Crane & Rigging Canada. Steve entered the industry as a fleet coordinator and held that role for four years before moving into an outside sales position, which he held for two years. Steve then spent nine years working in a business development manager role before being promoted to his current role as general manager. He joined the CCRA’s board of directors during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and was named Secretary-Treasurer in 2022-23. His goal is to continue to build on the financial health of the association. “My focus is on financial health of the organization, making sure we are able to progress as an association and support the initiatives we’re undertaking,” Steve says.

Vice-Chair – Ryan Long, President, A.W. Leil Cranes & Equipment Ltd.
Ryan is currently serving on his second term on the board of directors and first on the executive committee. During his first term, he served as Chair of the Membership Committee and played a role in the development of the Standard Terms & Conditions template for members and, more recently, preparing and launching the Canada-wide industry survey. With the entirety of his 20-year professional career spent in the crane and rigging service industry, he currently serves as the President of Nova Scotia-based crane rental firm A.W. Leil Cranes & Equipment, with coverage in five branches throughout Atlantic Canada.

“I have truly enjoyed my time on the board and learned so much from my colleagues. Now on my second term, I’ve come to realize that I am at the ‘sweet spot’ of both my career and time with the association. I’m at the half-way mark, which means I have considerable expertise and experience that I can use to help contribute to the board, support new members, and share experiences and learnings with others during our conferences. At the same time, I can still take advantage of being surrounded by industry leaders as the recipient of those same contributions,” Ryan says.
Outside of work, Ryan spends every possible minute with his wife Heidi and their two children. Together they enjoy all things outdoors, travel adventures, and rare quiet time at home.

Secretary-Treasurer – Mike Lavoie, Operations Manager, Myshak Crane & Rigging Ltd.

Mike has been in the Crane industry since 2003, he started his apprenticeship in 2003 for a small Mom and Pop crane company in Stony Plain, Alberta. Mike is now the Operations Manager for Myshak Crane & Rigging, based out of Acheson Alberta, and has been with the Myshak Group for 13 years! Mike has been heavily involved with the weights & dimensions committee through the CCRA, working on harmonizing western Canada and improving the logistics of All Terrain Cranes. Mike will be serving his second term on the board of directors and his first term as the Secretary Treasurer on the Executive Committee.

“It has been a pleasure working with the industry leaders in the Crane and Rigging Industry. I truly value the time I have spent on the board, and being able to learn from all me colleagues. Looking forward to the future, and all the exciting these to come”

Past-Chair – Shannon Moir-Riendeau, Vice-President of Operations, Moir Crane Service

The fifth generation of her family’s business to lead Moir Crane Service, Shannon has been overseeing her family’s company in Oldcastle, Ont. for the past six years. She has been volunteering with the CCRA Board of Directors since 2019-2020. During her time on the Board, Shannon has worked on a variety of initiatives, including the founding of the CCRA’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee. She says attracting more young people to the crane rental industry should be a top priority for the CCRA. “This has been a big discussion over the past two years. We’re all working together to figure out how to get more young people involved in the industry. I plan to work on this locally with the schools to get the younger kids more information about what we do,” Shannon says. “I’ve got teenage kids myself, so I know the local schools don’t have a whole lot of information available to them about the industry. We want to work on that.”
