As vice president of sustainable development, it’s no surprise that Marty believes sustainable design is both the right and the sensible thing to do. He aims for Stantec to be both an exemplary model and to develop progressive, sustainability-oriented services that draw on the entire firm’s capabilities.
Marty has earned a reputation as a pioneering visionary, innovator, and pragmatist through assignments in environmental and sustainability design and planning. He’s championing a new paradigm of design work that focuses on practical, lifecycle, and holistic approaches to urban design.
His work includes policy, corporate social responsibility, and stakeholder engagement on behalf of diverse sectors and communities, and he’s a member of the Canada Clean50, honoring outstanding contributors to sustainable development and clean capitalism in Canada.
Outside the office, Marty is chair of the Nova Scotia Round Table on Environment and Sustainable Prosperity. He also enjoys slipping his micro SMART car into tiny parking spaces.
