TORONTO — Former federal cabinet minister John Baird has been hired as a strategic adviser to Hatch, an engineering and consulting firm for resource companies.

Hatch has its global head office in Mississauga, Ont., and operates in 150 countries around the world.

The company says Baird’s experience in international affairs will help Hatch as it expands in the energy, mining and infrastructure sectors.

Baird presided over a number of federal portfolios, including foreign affairs, environment and transport and infrastructure.

It’s the latest corporate appointment for Baird since he announced in February that he was leaving Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet and resigned his seat in the riding of Ottawa West-Nepean.

Baird is one of several high-profile cabinet ministers who have announced they won’t be running again in the federal election in October.

In addition to the Hatch appointment, Baird has been hired as adviser to Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX) and law firm Bennett Jones and joined the board of directors of Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP).
