"There is No Excuse for Not Trying"

Dear Esteemed PEO Members,

As a dedicated PEO enthusiast, I come to you with a heartfelt message. Our beloved Professional Engineers Ontario is at a crossroads, facing challenges that demand our immediate attention. The evolving engineering landscape, limited member engagement, and threats to our self-regulation status all require strategic leadership. Now, more than ever, we need a competent and engaged council.

Addressing Challenges Head-On:

  1. Evolving Engineering Disciplines: Our field is undergoing a profound transformation, from renewable energy to AI ethics. PEO's focus must evolve to embrace these advancements, Ensuring Safety of Public, Environment, Ethical Standards, and Societal well-being.

  2. PEO’s Relevance: A concerning decline in new engineering students seeking licensure and a lack of recognition from companies call for PEO to instill a culture of value and relevance in today’s and tomorrow’s world.

  3. Limited Member Engagement and Public Trust: Overcoming a lack of interest requires us to build trust and emphasize the exclusive rights of Licensed Professional Engineers for the greater good.

  4. Maintaining Self-Regulation: The privilege of self-regulation is under threat, demanding proactive measures to secure our self-regulation status in Ontario.

The Solution: A Competent and Engaged Council:

The key lies in electing individuals with the right skills, passion, and proven leadership experience. We, as engineers, innovators, and problem solvers, 91,500 strong, can shape the future of PEO by actively participating in the election process and fortifying our profession.

Why Vote for Me as Vice President?

With substantial support as Councillor-at-Large Candidate in 2023, I am excited to present myself as your candidate for Vice President. With over 30 years of diverse engineering and management experience, I bring a strategic vision, innovation in regulation and licensing, collaborative stakeholder engagement, ethical governance, and a commitment to team building. Committed to evidence-based decisions, self-regulation, and financial acumen, I've led successful initiatives and transformations in large-scale operations. Managing multi-million-dollar budgets, I earned the title of Leader of Leaders at Stellantis.

As an adjunct professor, I inspire 250+ engineers yearly, demonstrating my commitment to learning and motivating future professionals.

Immediate Goals for PEO:

  1. Addressing regulatory challenges in emerging engineering disciplines.

  2. Enhancing the P.Eng. license as an asset for young engineers and the public.

  3. Advocating for exclusive rights of licensed engineers for public welfare and safety.
