We are pleased to announce the appointment of Shayne Giles as President of Dillon Consulting Inc. and Dillon Consulting Limited effective April 2, 2020.
Shayne has demonstrated considerable leadership, and rapidly taken on increasing responsibility, since becoming a Partner in 2015. He was appointed to Executive Director of Technical Skills and Technology in 2016, and currently holds the position of Executive Director, Strategic Projects and Talent Management. Shayne has also served on our Board of Directors since May 2018.
Shayne has led several key initiatives through his Executive Director roles, including the refresh of our values and the re-imagination of our talent strategy and leadership development. Shayne was also a critical contributor to the development of our current five-year plan for sustainable growth and is the executive sponsor of our ongoing cultural alignment.
A geological engineer with over 17 years of experience, Shayne has been recognized for his ability to solve complex multidisciplinary problems using innovative techniques and technology. His leadership philosophy centres on the value of ongoing learning and the importance of investing in the development of people across an organization throughout all stages of their career. The many challenges Shayne has taken on in his leadership positions, and the significant contributions he has made to our ongoing successful processes, will work in service to our organization as we continue to move forward together to achieve our desired goals.
We are confident we have the right people in place to not only bring us through the challenges we are currently facing, but continue our success this year and through the many years ahead.
