The PCL family of companies has announced the appointment of Todd Craigen to senior vice president and district manager of PCL Constructors Canada Inc. (Toronto).
Reporting to the president of Eastern Canada, Jim Dougan, Todd has overall responsibility for PCL’s operations in the Greater Toronto Area and southwestern Ontario, and succeeds Mike Wieninger, who has transitioned to PCL’s North American headquarters as chief operating officer of Canadian Operations, as announced on November 1, 2017. Vice president and district manager Bruce Sonnenberg and district manager Kelly Wallace support Todd in overseeing PCL Toronto, the largest district within the PCL family of companies.
“Todd has made significant contributions to the procurement, management, and successful execution of a number of high-profile projects across Canada,” said PCL president and CEO Dave Filipchuk. “His focus on creating successful outcomes for our clients’ unique needs, combined with his senior operations management experience, positions Todd to drive our Toronto operations into the future, while influencing a culture of innovation that pushes the industry forward.”
Todd brings nearly 25 years of construction industry experience to Toronto. In 1996, he began his PCL career as an estimator in the Regina district, and in 2000 moved to the Ottawa district where he was promoted to manager of its Special Projects division. In 2006, Todd moved to the Winnipeg district to take on the role of construction manager for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. In 2012, Todd was promoted to district manager of PCL’s newest district at the time, Saskatoon. Most recently, Todd held the position of vice president and district manager responsible for PCL’s operations in the BC Region.
Todd has served in a volunteer capacity on the United Way cabinet and several construction association boards, most recently joining the Ontario General Contractors Association’s board of directors in September 2017.
