Career Experience

Initially at Binnie Consulting, I was involved primarily with construction aspects of municipal capital projects.

In 2001, I was promoted to the position of Division Manager and in 2013 promoted to Vice President Binnie Consulting Ltd. I currently hold the position of Chief Operating Officer for Binnie Consulting.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • I started out working in construction and was often confronted with problems which required technical knowledge to solve. That experience led me to the realization that I desired to have more knowledge of technical aspects of civil works.
