  When tackling big challenges, life is so much simpler when you have a great team to execute a great plan.

David Lehto

Senior Principal, Regional Business Leader

Toronto, Ontario

As the regional business leader for our Canadian project delivery office, Dave brings more than 20 years of management and business strategy including eight years as managing and discipline leader.

A project management professional with P3 design-build-finance-maintain and LEED experience, his hands-on approach to planning, controls, risk mitigation and construction make him an ideal leader on large, multidisciplinary capital programs. As a program manager, he’s successfully led a team of 150 architects and engineers to deliver 77 Target Canada stores and 30 project managers and schedulers on Canada Post’s multi-billion dollar Postal Transformation Program (across 18 cities).

He’s completed 300 projects a year for CIBC’s Commercial Real Estate Group, and worked on numerous environmental programs for CP Rail, Ontario Power Generation, Petro-Canada, Shell Canada, and Suncor.

Key to his success is recognizing and leveraging the individual strengths in his team. As an avid cyclist, he perseveres through long journeys and difficult climbs the same way he overcomes project obstacles.
