PCL says succession transition has taken place for its leadership positions of COO, Canadian Operations, and COO, Heavy Industrial.
The company says in a statement that Mike Wieninger has been promoted to chief operating officer, Canadian Operations, responsible for PCL’s Buildings and Civil operations across all provinces. He is a member of the Office of the CEO and brings over 20 years of experience with the company to his new position.
Wieninger was most recently PCL’s executive vice-president, Canadian Buildings, and before that was Toronto’s senior vice-president and district manager. He has a bachelor of science degree in civil engineering from the University of Calgary and is a registered professional engineer with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta.
Meanwhile, Roger Keglowitsch has been promoted to chief operating officer, Heavy Industrial, and is a member of the Office of the CEO. As chief operating officer Keglowitsch is responsible for PCL’s heavy industrial operations across North America. He joined the PCL family in 1992 and since that time has served in various capacities of increasing responsibility. He holds a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta and is a certified journeyman plumber pipefitter.
Chris Gower moved into the role of chief operating officer, Buildings, last November and oversees the performance of PCL’s buildings operations across all borders. He will continue in this role, and Wieninger, in his new position, will report to Gower. Gower has been with PCL for 22 years; he is an alumnus of Fanshawe College and is a CCA Gold Seal certified estimator and project manager.
“PCL takes succession seriously at all levels of our organization, and we make sure the right people are in the right place to preserve continuity in our business,” said PCL president and CEO Dave Filipchuk. “While we are saying good-bye to Rob Holmberg’s and Ian Johnston’s years of experience, we are excited that Mike’s and Roger’s extensive knowledge of our company and industry ensures a seamless transition.”
The company says Holmberg and Johnston are retiring from their respective positions of president and COO, Canadian and Australian Operations, and COO, Heavy Industrial.
