Top 40 Under 40 in Canadian Construction winners revealed

The nominees were chosen for their professional achievements, innovation, leadership and community involvement.

The next generation of Canadian construction leaders building the nation are getting their due with this year’s Top 40 Under 40.

The annual list is a collaboration between On-Site Magazine, a publication that covers Canada’s construction sector and SitePartners, a marketing firm that specializes in industrial clients. The winners were chosen by a panel of judges based on professional achievements, innovation, leadership and community involvement.

Andrew Hansen, CEO and founder of SitePartners, believes that if young people can see other young talent succeeding in construction, they are more likely to consider a construction career. 

“When I first envisioned this I saw it as a way to attract people to the industry. The best way to do that is to showcase all the young talent in construction,” said Hansen. “Before the 40 Under 40, there was nothing like it. Three years later we have highlighted the stories of 120 leaders that are shaping our industry.”

Hansen added that he believes this year’s pool of winners is as strong as it has ever been.

“On behalf of myself and the rest of the 40 Under 40 team, congratulations to all the winners past and present,” he said. “It’s been amazing to see the community that this has built and we are looking forward to celebrating even more young industry leaders.”

This year’s winners included nominees from PCL Construction, Graham Construction, Wales McLelland Construction, AECOM, Pomerleau, Chard Development, Threeosix Industrial Services, Salus, Quattro Constructors, Steelix Developments, Lafarge and many more. 

The list of winners featured female leaders like Mi Kim, a senior commercial manager for Jacob Bros. Construction. In addition to her regular work duties, Kim is helping other women enter the field by mentoring students through the Women in Engineering group at the University of British Columbia. 

It also touched on entrepreneurs like Andrew Neill who began his construction career at 17. After rising up the ranks to become a project manager, he started his own company at 31, Andrew Neill Construction. He’s since branched out into modular construction and even has an international patent pending for one of his modular solutions. 

The 2022 list didn’t forget innovators like Kevin Goldberg who worked with a fellow engineer to develop a better way to manage the movement of excess material across construction projects. He is now the president of SoilFLO, a software company that is expanding internationally.

But those are just a sample. SiteNews has the full list of winners and their stories.
