Regional Director Western Quebec
- Environment (Canada)
“I have been part of Montreal’s Environment group since we were only eight in the team and I have seen it grow to over 200 employees. I can testify that within WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, the only limit is yourself! Our growth has been accomplished through incredible teamwork and we have a particular strength in recognising potential in young, dynamic employees and enabling them to make the most of interesting opportunities. When we reflected on our growth and interoffice synergies, communication was of the utmost importance for us, as well as interpersonal relationships and, perhaps above all, enjoying what we do!”

“I am lucky enough to serve on the Australia/New Zealand section of Taskforce, which is a group of early career professionals brought together to improve business performance through knowledge sharing and strategic thinking. Our regional task was to look into improving staff engagement and improving and enabling resource sharing, and our global task was the organization of a worldwide virtual meeting of early career professionals in partnership with all the Taskforce groups worldwide. Working with Taskforce is a rewarding experience, enriching my career path and network through interaction with a wide variety of dynamic professionals and the chance to address strategic issues as a team.”

“I moved from Nova Scotia to Alberta as our Planning team expanded services in urban and rural planning out West. One thing that has really struck me since the move is our collaborative work within WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff : tools such as Lync really give a boost to our capacity to communicate, particularly for our complex, multidisciplinary projects. There are numerous interesting shifts happening in the planning profession that will affect our future. Having this new geographic network will help us be at the forefront of change!”

“Travelling is in my genes! Sitting on my grandmother’s knee, I would hear stories of India, East Africa… When the opportunity came up a couple of years ago to move from the UK with my family to work for WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff in the Middle East, I was delighted. As well as a friendly welcome and the rich cultural experience, my personal development has been furthered as I have expanded my role from supporting one market segment in the UK to covering the breadth of our expertise in the Middle East. In terms of the success of my move, I feel that the firm’s strength and my own interest in communications between regions and connectivity have been essential.”
Associate - Building Services
Working with WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff since 2007 has given me a great opportunity to explore a large variety of projects globally. This has allowed me to meet people from all around the world and be exposed to different cultures. With my previous United States engineering background I was able to integrate the different ways of thinking and greatly improve myself both technically and intellectually. Another thing I cherish the most is the friendly and energetic working environment. Whilst there have been difficult moments to overcome from time to time, it is the team spirit that has allowed us to get through the hard times and come to great accomplishment.
