Austin McLennan (Chair)
Why Did You Join? “I love being a part of a group that can provide opportunities for people who are just starting their careers in construction to get to know other people in a safe, welcoming environment. It’s a relaxed, pressure free, and fun setting for people to grow themselves professionally, and I enjoy playing a part in that!”
What’s A Little Known Fact About You? I used to play the saxophone from grade 7 through 12
Why Did You Join? “During my initial years in the construction industry, the Developing Executive events were extremely beneficial to me with making new connections, putting names to faces and making friends in this industry. After so many years of the committee helping me, it felt like the natural progression to join the committee to help others develop the same connections that will stay with them throughout their careers.”
