As David joins Stantec’s leadership group in Atlantic Canada, he will focus on business development and growth, and contributing to the structural engineering group.
“In the last couple of years, the buildings sector has increasingly required us to deliver more efficient projects. Our clients need us to do more with less. David will help us do that,” says Rob Dumaresq, Stantec’s managing lead for buildings, Atlantic Canada. “David has a proven track-record of delivering complicated and complex building construction projects on time and on budget. We look forward sharing David’s experience and knowledge to benefit our clients.”
“I’m excited by the culture of collaboration Stantec fosters, both internally, and with clients,” says David. “The consulting industry is always changing. But, in my 25 years of experience, I’ve found that this collaborative approach provides a great balance. It brings out the best of traditional and innovative solutions. At the end of the day, our clients win.”
