Edmonton, Alberta (March 14, 2024) – PCL Construction is pleased to announce its President & CEO, Dave Filipchuk, has been recognized as the Canadian Construction Association’s National Pinnacle Leader.

The CCA Pinnacle Leader Award recognizes leaders who apply the highest standards and principles of the construction industry and business community. The Pinnacle Leader demonstrates a pursuit of excellence in any field serving the Canadian construction industry. This award honours the memory of Robert Stollery – a past PCL CEO – whose contribution to Canada’s construction industry symbolized the qualities for which the award is given.

“It was Robert Stollery’s vision that PCL be employee-owned, and we have been now for 47 years. Employee ownership has made it possible for many to build long-term rewarding careers with us, and equally has allowed us to better serve our clients.” says Dave.

“I reflect on my 40-years with PCL with immense gratitude for the opportunities that have come my way. The journey has been incredibly diverse, with experience in Canada, the U.S. and Australia, and across our operations in the Buildings, Civil, Infrastructure, and Heavy Industrial sectors.  Every step has been a learning experience for me.

I accept this recognition humbly, knowing the credit is shared with an incredibly talented leadership team that I’m part of, and that our 5,000 plus contingent of dedicated construction professionals have made this possible.”
