Les Mack

CEO

1-888-944-8595

Les Mack graduated from Queen’s University in 1989 in Mechanical Engineering and later received a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 2007. Les held engineering roles in the fields of mechanical, process, process safety, machine safety, and project engineering. The majority of his engineering experience is primarily in the industrial and manufacturing sectors. He started his career as a process engineer in the cement industry assisting senior engineers to engineer and design new cement plants. After leaving the cement industry, he accepted a position as a mechanical engineer in the mineral processing industry that enabled him to obtain “hands on” field experience. In a short time, he was promoted to Engineering Manager and led a team of engineers, designers and engineering contractors for major site expansions.

Les realized his passion for engineering and needed to further develop his engineering skills. He decided to join an international engineering company as a mechanical/process engineer that enabled him to develop a broader and deeper understanding of engineering, best practices, codes and regulations.

Shortly after receiving his MBA, he started an engineering, procurement and construction management company. He continues to enjoy engineering, mentoring and supporting teammates as they develop throughout their career paths while helping customers meet their business needs.
