Announcing Jamie Witherspoon, P.Eng., LEED AP as Vice President

Cole Engineering Group Ltd. (COLE) is pleased to appoint Jamie Witherspoon, P.Eng., LEED AP as Vice President - Director of our Federal and Provincial program and Interim Director of Quality Management.

Having worked in the consulting industry across the Province starting in Cornwall and then moving to Kingston before settling in the GTA and Kitchener/Waterloo area, Jamie has had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients and project types resulting in a more generalist skill-set.   He comes to COLE from WSP (and associated preceding companies) where he was for his entire 23 year career to date and most recently in a senior management role in the infrastructure group.  His primary client focus has been on Federal and Provincial clients through Public Works and Government Services Canada, Defense Construction Canada, Infrastructure Ontario, Parks Canada and Ontario Parks.

Jamie brings extensive background in the areas of municipal infrastructure, small and medium sized water/wastewater systems, water management and monitoring, and private-public-partnerships, particularly focused in the light rail transit and water/wastewater projects. 

A seasoned, client focused professional, Jamie has a demonstrated understanding of project and program management and service delivery.  This includes directing small and large technical project teams, interfacing with the clients, and being responsible for the successful delivery of the products.

We are pleased that Jamie has chosen to join the COLE team and his contributions will be key to helping us move up the value chain and achieve our strategy.
