An Ontario office has always been part of our plans for MyPlace and sister company, NGC. We’ve been doing work in the province since 2003, and many of the clients we work with in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan are headquartered in Ontario. We’ve heard time and time again how important it is for us to have a stronger presence in the province; now is the time for us to make that happen.
Alfredo Hermano, our CEO, is in the process of moving with his family, and will manage the new office (which will be up and running later this month). Alfredo will continue in his role as CEO of both MyPlace and NGC and it’s safe to say, he’s going to be on a plane a lot as things get going, ensuring our Western Canadian projects, clients and employees get the support they need through this transition. But we’re excited to have the opportunity to connect face to face with our Ontario-based clients on a much more regular basis. Maarten will remain in Vancouver in his role as Chief Operating Officer of both companies, with Dale Bellavance in his role as Executive Vice President.
The MyPlace team is really excited about our ability to provide more support and service to our Ontario-based clients, and we’ll share more information as plans develop. In the meantime, if you have any questions about this announcement, please let us know.
