Edmonton, Alberta (July 26, 2021) – PCL Construction congratulates Sean Barnes on his appointment as vice president, Special Projects, following recent succession transitions across PCL. He reports to Chris Gower, chief operating officer, buildings. We recognize Sean’s excellent leadership as vice president and district manager of our Winnipeg District from 2008 to 2019 and wish him the best in his new role.

Sean will remain in Winnipeg for his new role with the Special Projects division, which offers a unique small-contractor service that supports clients in the buildings, civil and industrial sectors across North America. Sean will focus on expanding PCL’s competitive Special Projects offering in existing markets and in new territories.
