EllisDon has announced the appointment of Paul Trudel as vice-president, people and culture. Trudel will assume the role and responsibilities effective immediately and will succeed Rosemarie Lipman who has entered the new role of senior vice-president, enterprise intelligence.

“One of the things we celebrate at EllisDon is our unique culture,” said Geoff Smith, president and CEO, EllisDon. “We are convinced that Paul is and will be a disciple and champion of our values, and is joining EllisDon out of an enthusiasm for our culture and our potential. Paul also brings terrific experience and a deep knowledge of the construction industry.”

Prior to joining EllisDon, Trudel spent the last five years working with PCL where he led the employee onboarding program, the Leadership Academy, and succession planning efforts. Before that, he served as director of human resources at Hyatt Hotels for eight years where his experience in this industry is expected to directly benefit EllisDon’s service philosophy, employee first purpose, and continued evolvement of cradle-to-grave services.

“I was attracted to EllisDon through learning about its wonderful culture, rapid growth and brilliant people,” said Trudel. “After confirming my outlook through an employee referral, I knew I wanted to make the move. It’s exciting to be part of a team that is empowered, innovative and truly puts their people first. It is important to me to preserve and enhance this storied tradition and help forge individual careers to the next level.”
