The current chief operating officer of The Ledcor Group’s Constructors division has been tapped to take over the company’s pipeline and industrial construction groups.
The Vancouver-headquartered contractor said April 22 it has appointed Dale Posein to lead the two operating groups, as well as Ledcor’s Fort McMurray unit.
“I am very pleased to announce this promotion of Dale Posein within our Constructors group,” Tom Lassu, president of Ledcor Industries, said in a release. “He is a proven leader with over three decades of construction experience with Ledcor in road-building, mining, SAGDs, fibre optics, and pipeline. Dale has been a very effective project executive on many complex builds, especially as energy project design, engineering, and construction methods have become more complex, demanding, and scrutinized.”
Posein will take the reins from Bill Partington, a 15-year Ledcor veteran and president of the company’s Pipeline unit. Heading into retirement, Partington said the group “is in good hands,” adding that the future “looks extremely bright.”
Ledcor’s pipeline, industrial and Fort McMurray units build and maintain large diameter mainline energy pipelines and industrial facilities, as well as service oilsands operations in Western Canada.
“I look forward to leading Ledcor’s oil and gas focused teams, as we evolve to face the new challenges and opportunities that face the industry,” Posein said in a release. “I especially look forward to working with our long-standing clients, our global partners and local suppliers to deliver world-class petroleum energy infrastructure for Canada that is safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable.”
