Growing up in what was then Czechoslovakia impressed upon Ondrej that life is “in the doing” and opportunity abounds when you have the courage to maintain your integrity and persevere together. Following in his father’s footsteps, he became a Materials Engineer out of an aspiration to build enduring legacies for his community. His career led him to South Africa where for over 20 years he built a legacy of technically and politically challenging projects, and later to Canada where his focus remains on engaging teams to achieve the needs of his clients.
Naturally sociable, Ondrej casts an empathetic set of values over his teams, and focuses everyone on clearly defined goals. His structured and analytical approach to building forms a solid foundation for stakeholders that puts the needs of everyone at the core of every project he manages.
Passionate about rugby (and his 2 boys who play), once a competitive skier, Ondrej takes every opportunity to hit the slopes and, when it isn’t snowing, plays guitar in one of the top three garage bands on his street.
