Sean Dekoning has been appointed vice president and area manager for EllisDon in Calgary. His new role will be overseeing and leading the entirety of EllisDon Calgary’s buildings group.

Dekoning  graduated from the Civil Engineering Technology program at SAIT and joined EllisDon in 2004 as an estimator. Two years later he made the move out of the office and became a project manager before being promoted to senior project manager in 2011. As senior project manager, Dekoning helped lead teams on some of EllisDon Calgary’s most complex projects including the $1 billion South Health Campus and the Schulich School of Engineering Redevelopment at the University of Calgary.

“I am truly ecstatic and humbled at the opportunity to lead the strong and talented team of professionals that we have here in the Calgary area,” said Dekoning. “Looking forward to the future, I have no doubt we will achieve many great things together and continue to drive EllisDon’s success.”
