Akin Oni and Mike Romaniuk join Stantec’s mining practice

Stantec is welcoming two key new team members to its mining practice, as Akin Oni and Mike Romaniuk join Stantec in Sudbury.

Both Mike and Akin are authorities on project management and delivery services. Akin joins Stantec as senior consultant, mining. He brings nearly 30 years of experience working for some of the world’s most asset-intensive Owner and EPCM companies in the mining and oil and gas industries. Mike joins Stantec as senior project manager, mining. He has spent 30 years working on the project and operations side of the mining industry. 

“Stantec’s Mining Team continues to bring together smart, creative, and inspired people,” says Brian Mashford, senior principal and regional business leader of global mining with Stantec. “The addition of these two strategic hires brings increased bench strength and excellence to our mining team. Mike and Akin are both recognized throughout the industry as specialists in their respective fields, which will further add to our mining strength. We’re excited to share Akin and Mike’s experience and knowledge with our clients.”

“I’m excited to join Stantec and to help the team refine a top-notch delivery system for our mining projects, one that builds on our people, processes and systems,” says Akin. Akin most recently served as chief development officer with Eftex Energy Services LLC. And, for nearly 15 years, he served in various project management roles with BHP Billiton. Returning to Sudbury from Texas, Akin is a graduate of Athabasca University and serves as a volunteer advisor and mentor for energy companies, including new startups taking part in the Houston Technology Center’s Ignition and Acceleration programs.

Most recently, Mike served as chief operating officer and vice president of operation for Fortune Minerals Limited.

“There is a lot of great talent in Stantec,” says Mike. “I’m looking forward to also helping to develop that talent while working on some amazing opportunities.”  He is a Sudbury resident and a graduate of the University of Toronto. An active member of the community, Mike serves on the NORCAT board of directors and also volunteers with Sudbury’s annual dragon boat races.
