EDMONTON, Alberta & NEW YORK -- 

Stantec announced today that executive vice president, Steve Fleck, was promoted to the newly created position of chief practice and project officer, effective January 1, 2018. Following a successful tenure leading the firm’s Project Delivery Office, Fleck will manage the strategic positioning, contractual elements, and governance of Stantec’s largest projects while overseeing alternative project delivery for the Company. He has nearly 35 years of industry leadership experience, including more than 10 years with Stantec.

“Steve has established leadership expertise in developing the systems and organizational foundation necessary to meet the needs of our large-scale project clients,” said Bob Gomes, Stantec’s president and chief executive officer. “Both this role and his talents are a complement to our continued focus on project delivery excellence to benefit our clients.”

Fleck will join Stantec’s chief executive leadership team, alongside executive vice president and chief financial officer, Dan Lefaivre; executive vice president and chief operating officer, Scott Murray; executive vice president and chief business officer, Tino DiManno, and incoming president and chief executive officer, Gord Johnston, who will assume his new position on January 1, 2018.

During his Stantec career, Fleck has provided key leadership to the organization in the areas of major project financing, procurement, and delivery. After joining Stantec in 2007, he served as vice president of the Company’s Program & Project Management practice and progressed into successive leadership roles before being appointed executive vice president of Stantec’s Programs & Business Solutions group. He formalized Stantec’s company-wide Project Delivery Office, a critical team responsible for streamlining major project governance across all sectors. Additionally, Fleck played a key role in continuing to grow the firm’s externally focused Program & Project Management business. Prior to joining Stantec, he was the vice president of Canadian Infrastructure Operations for a globally-recognized engineering and project management company. A recognized industry advocate, Fleck has served on the board of directors for the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) in Canada. A resident of Vancouver, British Columbia, he received a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, before earning a master of business administration degree from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia.

“Our company has grown tremendously within the last few years alongside our reach and ability to support some of the world’s largest infrastructure projects,” says Fleck. “I’m inspired by our organization and the opportunity to grow our reputation for project delivery excellence in communities where our talents are needed most.”
