Banff’s 500-strong construction force is led by a core leadership team of labour advisors and construction superintendents with vast industry experience plus all the complementary skills and talents needed to form a complete management group and construction team.
Roger brings more than four decades of experience in all areas of construction to his role as President of Banff, including a strong focus on labour relations. His proven management approach is to earn the respect of the people who report to him by treating them fairly, being truthful at all times, and not asking staff to do anything he wouldn’t do himself.
Roger’s construction career began in Calgary in 1971, through a summer job while studying engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. He spent the following nine years working for one of Canada’s largest construction companies, working his way from labourer to construction superintendent. His specialty was concrete structures. In 1980 Roger returned to Saskatchewan, where he was born and raised. For the following nine years he worked for a Saskatchewan builder, where he focused mainly on structural concrete jobs and erecting tower cranes.
In 1991 Roger joined Banff Constructors. He spent the following 19 years working in the field, principally as a site superintendent on jobs all over Saskatchewan, before taking the position of Labour Manager. In early 2012 Banff’s board of directors appointed Roger company President. Roger makes his home on a farm near Hague, Saskatchewan, and his interests are running John Deere combines, fishing and managing the Hague Senior Hockey Team.
