Vice-President (P3 Advisory)
As a Vice President based in WT’s Toronto office, I serve as a leader for our P3 Advisory service offering across North America, with a specific focus on Lenders’ Technical Advisory. In this role, I oversee delivery of all technical deliverables in addition to coordinating both internal and external resources. In keeping with WT’s continued growth strategy across the continent, I work to develop new business opportunities with Developers, Lenders, and Contractors in addition to maintaining existing client relationships. In addition, my role oftentimes finds me leveraging my past expertise to support our Project Delivery team either through technical production or providing advice on implementation and best practices. In my five years working in the P3 market, I’ve contributed to over 50 major infrastructure P3’s in Canada, the United States, Australia, and Turkey.
My roles have ranged from lenders’ advisor, to independent certifier, through to owner’s project manager which has provided me with a highly objective frame of reference for all sides of P3 transactions. Having joined WT’s North American practice in 2016, I’ve had the unique opportunity to participate in the expansion of a world-renowned consultancy into an exciting new market. This entrepreneurial opportunity was what initially brought me to WT, and seeing our presence grow to what it has in such a short time period has been hands-down one of the most rewarding experiences for me as a professional in the industry.
