Solidifying Stantec’s commitment to enter the Western Balkans region, Maja Spasojevic has joined the company’s EU-based International Development team as a Senior Business Development Manager – Strategist for the Western Balkans. The global engineering, architecture, and consulting firm’s International Development team is comprised of technical experts and project managers who help to actualize projects in developing countries around the globe, specifically concentrated on sustainable energy, climate change, communications and stakeholder engagement. The appointment confirms Stantec’s focus on the Western Balkans region, where several countries are in the accession process to join the European Union and align their legislations and policies with those of EU standards.
Spasojevic has experience on projects in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo. In this role, she will leverage her 20+ years of experience as a Business Developer/Advisor, Project Director, and Capacity Building and Communications Expert to establish a foothold for Stantec in the Western Balkans region. She also holds a diploma in Communication and PR, a degree in Strategic Management and a masters in Operational Management, as well as several related certificates and trainings she has completed and applied to her work across the region.
As a Serbian national with broad regional professional experience and with relevant contacts with different stakeholders, Ms. Spasojevic will be able to bring a personal understanding of the particularities of the region as she navigates where the Stantec team can best apply its expertise to create positive improvements.
“We are thrilled to be bringing on Maja to the team as we add this new avenue of focus to our existing strategy,” said Christophe Leroy, Operations Director for Stantec in Belgium. “She brings to the table the exact combination of work experience, understanding of the region, and strategic thinking that we are confident will help us make productive steps into this new region of focus.”
Communities are fundamental. Whether around the corner or across the globe, they provide a foundation, a sense of place and of belonging. That's why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind.
We care about the communities we serve—because they're our communities too. This allows us to assess what's needed and connect our expertise, to appreciate nuances and envision what's never been considered, to bring together diverse perspectives so we can collaborate toward a shared success.
We're designers, engineers, scientists, and project managers, innovating together at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. Balancing these priorities results in projects that advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.
