Dean moved to Calgary in 2010 with his wife and two boys, a piano in tow and a goal to develop Stantec’s presence in the oil & gas sector. Looking to expand Stantec’s capabilities, Dean landed an acquisition shortly after his arrival. He is part of the team that has built the oil & gas group into what it is today.
Dean continues to grow the group through business development and project pursuits as sub-sector lead for the oil sands. He has the technical and client experience to be able to speak to issues and projects within the sector. He sets up the conditions for success through aligning the needs of the various stakeholders and creating cohesive teams that share similar visions, values and goals.
Outside of work, Dean’s many interests reflect his creativity. He relaxes by playing the blues on his piano. A keen photographer, Dean captures the spirit of sport and human achievement on film, shooting sports photography.
