Patrick Wilson 2023 Winner

Operations Manager and Vice-President‚ Western Canada District at Kiewit


Patrick Wilson started working full-time for Kiewit while he was still studying for his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Once he graduated, his career really took off. He now has 18 years of experience in the construction industry, almost half of which have been in project management. He currently has responsibility for the transportation, marine and foundations markets in Western Canada, a portfolio that generates about $300 million in annual revenue. These figures are especially impressive given that Kiewit only entered the marine and foundations markets in that part of the country in 2019. Patrick combines technical competence with a great head for business and a knack for communication, all of which have propelled him from one success to another. He also mentors three or four new project managers every year and is an avid supporter of – and participant in – efforts to recruit and retain more women in the industry.
