As the US West Regional Business Leader for the Buildings practice, Rory focuses on enabling the strategic growth and development of all our disciplines within the US West region. His ambition? To contribute to the development of a truly integrated model of practice—globally—in the buildings business line.
As an architect, Rory delights in having the privilege to work with talented teams of design professionals, scientists, and engineers. People who are committed to making the communities they call home the best possible places for their families, their friends, and everyone else they impact with the work they do. But, to be truly successful, Rory believes that we need to give a voice to each and every perspective on what makes our communities rich, safe, and relevant.
Serving on Stantec’s US Diversity and Inclusion Council, Rory is proud to support a culture that celebrates our unique collection of individuals. It’s just one way that he works to better our communities, improve our business, enhance our projects, and show the value each team member brings to the work.
For Rory, the most exciting project is always the one the team is working on today—it’s the latest chance to explore new design ideas, solve new problems, investigate new technologies, and most importantly, create new relationships with people.
Across his three decades of work, Rory has always endeavored to leave positive change: “Every project has impact and meaning, so the best thing we can do is to appreciate how our work changes the world.”
