Rory Smith

Rory started with EllisDon as a recurring summer student on various construction projects across the Greater Toronto Area, working on several hospitals, office towers, and a jail. EllisDon is a General Contractor, so that meant he was doing a little bit of everything while onsite.

His education moved him away from fieldwork, but because he loved the people and company culture, he applied and was picked up by EllisDon's corporate marketing team. By this time, it had become apparent that EllisDon, which was still expanding in size and its scope of services, was running into a communications problem internally.

Knowing both sides of the work, and being confident with technology, Rory laid out his case to be the company's first Internal Communications Coordinator. Now, it is Rory's job to ensure that everyone at EllisDon knows what is going on across the company, whom to go to for what, and what new things are on the horizon.
