Garth Cressman is the new CEO at WalterFedy and AEC.
The announcement was made by the board of directors on Thursday morning.
Cressman first joined the company in the early 2000s, left to take on a role with a local construction firm in 2007, then returned to WalterFedy in 2014.
"So many people invested in my development as a young engineer here," he said in a release, "I'm honoured to lead the company in developing the next generation of leaders."
The appointment comes on the heels of a new and profound strategic plan, nearly a year in the making.
"As we prepared to launch an ambitious strategy laid out by our Board of Directors, we recognized the need for an agile leader to fully realize the potential in our goals," added chairman of the board, Jamie Van Dyk. "We are excited by Garth’s enterprising nature and unshakeable drive which are well-matched to the challenge ahead for WalterFedy and AEC. Garth is and will continue to be a strong ambassador in our community and for the firm."
WalterFedy specializes in architecture; mechanical, electrical, structural, and civil engineering; energy and carbon management; asset and facilities management; project management; and construction management through their sister company, AEC Developments.
