Vice President I Business Development
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF THE SCOTT BUILDERS TEAM?
Working with good people. People is all about what we do, from design (starting on a restaurant napkin) and developing the project with our employees into a finished project. I love the magnitude of the building and projects and participating in everything from start to finish, concept to completion. There is a whole team involved from start to finish, and being a part of that is the most exciting part of my role. I love that I’ve been able to grow with the company, and the success is always exciting. I’ve been able to ride the ups and down of the business and look forward to what the future brings.
WHAT INITIALLY DREW YOU TO THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY & WHAT MADE YOU STAY?
Initially, I needed a job. Coming out of university, it was an easy transition joining Scott Builders, where I started with steel construction. From there, I moved into Estimating, where I continued to evolve and grow my career. Over the years I developed a passion for the business development side of the business, which has kept me happily in the industry for years.
WHEN YOU’RE NOT HARD AT WORK, WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU?
I love soccer, and used to play a lot and coach. When I’m not hard at work or playing or watching soccer, you can find me running (about 4 or 5 times a week), camping, and travelling. I take any opportunity to explore our beautiful province in my camper.
SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE? (OR YOUR HERO)
As I reflect on my career, I was greatly influenced by Zelensky. I’ve always admired how he stands his ground and his ability to pivot and adjust to the current circumstances.
WORDS YOU LIVE BY: (FAVOURITE QUOTE OR LIFE PHILOSOPHY)
I have two main quotes or philosophies I live by:
Work: “To earn our customer’s unequivocal commitment to do business with us again.”
Personal: “If you don’t believe in coincidence you are not paying attention.”
Both have served me well over my life and have guided my actions over the years.
