Aecon Group Inc. announced Monday the hiring of two new executives for its GTA operations and a realignment of its management structure.

Wayne Jennings will join the Aecon Buildings GTA as senior vice-president of project development; Jeff Pigott is the division’s new senior vice-president of construction.

Both are filling newly created positions.

Jennings will have responsibility for business development, estimating and pre-construction services; Pigott will be responsible for construction operations.

Jennings has over 20 years’ experience managing operations in the construction and real estate industries, most recently as vice-president and GM of the Ottawa office of Montreal-based Canderel Group of Companies.

Pigott was most recently vice-president of field operations for Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. where he oversaw civil, institutional, commercial and industrial projects.

Management realignment

Aecon also said Monday that it is realigning its internal management structure.

Its buildings division will now form part of Aecon’s Infrastructure Group.

“This realignment will more fully capitalize on the combined strengths and potential synergies of the two organizations,” the company said in a news release.

Under the reorganization, Teri McKibbon, CEO of Aecon’s Infrastructure Group, will carry executive responsibility for the combined organization.

Aecon Buildings will be a separate business unit within the now broadened Aecon Infrastructure Group, with Aecon Buildings president Frank Ross reporting to McKibbon.

“A growing area of focus for the combined team will be projects where the skills and experience of both the Buildings and Infrastructure teams can be applied jointly, such as public transit, water treatment facilities and sports facilities as well as energy and power generation projects,” the company said.

“There are an increasing number of synergies and common market opportunities for buildings and infrastructure, particularly on large public sector projects, where Aecon is already very well positioned, as well as on certain smaller, specialized opportunities where Aecon’s scale, sophistication and multi trade capabilities can add real value for our clients.

“This combination will give Aecon a true competitive advantage in delivering projects as a full service construction company.”

Aecon Group Inc. is Canada’s largest, publicly traded construction and infrastructure development company.
