As director of project services, Mike is primarily a leader and strategic touchpoint for the project services team and related activities within our mining business line. After spending a number of years in mine operations, Mike is constantly impressed by the variety of projects and diverse range of challenges that Stantec takes on.
Mike’s passion is running. When you’re in a race, the best strategy is to maintain a strong, consistent effort and minimize actions that don’t impact the end goal. Similarly, Mike’s strategy in his current role—whether he’s working with clients or team members—is to lead by example and ensure that we deliver a quality product, through consistent but efficient effort, that results in value for both the client and Stantec.
Using his operations experience, Mike provides senior review to various projects, and he interfaces with vital account management responsibilities, maintaining contact with key clients to develop new opportunities for Stantec.
Recently, Mike had the opportunity to take part in two technical reviews of mining operations that allowed him to pull together his passions for continuous improvement and mine operations, delivering value-based recommendations to the client.
