Having joined Concert Infrastructure at its inception in 2010, Derron is responsible for leading the strategy, project origination, development, investment, financing, and asset management activities of the $505 million Concert Infrastructure Fund. Concert Infrastructure is an independent long-term investor, developer, and manager, established to partner with governments to deliver critical public infrastructure assets that support essential public services that strengthen the economic and social fabric of Canadian communities and the well-being of Canadians. The master trust, equity fund, is backed by ten Canadian union and management pension plans and presently holds twelve infrastructure investments with an aggregate value of more than $3.3 billion. Concert Infrastructure has established itself as the largest investor, developer, and manager of multi-site, bundled, public private partnership (P3) projects in Canada and manages project investments in five provinces or territories. Additionally, Concert Infrastructure has pursued a co-investment strategy with OMERS Infrastructure, providing its shareholders investment exposure and returns from large international infrastructure projects or assets.

Over a twenty-three-year period, Derron has a demonstrated record of successfully leading complex public private partnership infrastructure projects and multi-disciplinary teams, in multi-stakeholder environments on behalf of the Ontario government and Concert Infrastructure. During his career he has closed or has been assigned lead management oversight of more than twenty-five major infrastructure projects with total capital value over $10 billion. Prior to joining Concert Infrastructure, Derron was a founding team member of Infrastructure Ontario, transitioning from its predecessor agency the Ontario SuperBuild Corporation. With this collective experience, he brings a unique perspective and understanding of the Canadian infrastructure sector and in particular the intersection of government and the private sector business and investment.

A graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada and Dalhousie University, prior to his career in the Canadian infrastructure sector, Derron was a maritime warfare officer in the Royal Canadian Navy. In 2023 he participated in the True Patriot Love Foundation’s expedition in tribute to the joint Canada-US First Special Service Force or Devil’s Brigade. The expedition honoured the over 2,000 lives lost during their 251 days of combat in World War II, while creating awareness, raising funds and a new team to support the physical and mental wellness of current members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans, and their families.

Derron is a Chartered Director and has previously contributed his expertise to not-for-profit boards, including the Juno Beach Centre Association and the Royal Military College of Canada Museum Corporation.
