Alltrade Hires Jack Gibson as Director of Construction

With four decades of experience in the industry, Gibson has
extensive knowledge of the energy and industrial markets.

Cambridge, Ontario – Alltrade Industrial Contractors Inc., an Ontario-based contractor and member of the Barton Malow Family of Companies, has tapped Jack Gibson to oversee its project delivery efforts as Director of Construction. With more than 40 years of experience in the energy and industrial markets, Gibson has the breadth of expertise needed to help Alltrade achieve its goals.

Gibson’s career began as an apprentice electrician working on various projects in the power, gas compression, and automotive sectors. He sharpened his skills as he expanded his roles, including estimating, procurement, project management, and operations management. “I spent the early part of my career learning every aspect of the construction business and what it takes to lead a successful project and an integrated team,” says Gibson. This experience led him to a role at Aecon as Vice President of Construction.

At Aecon, he led many large projects, leveraging his understanding of the energy and industrial markets. Most notably, he assured the successful completion of the Sask Power Queen Elizabeth Power Plant, the UGL Dawn to Parkway compressor stations, the Spectra Energy Sunset Creek (BC) compressor station, and the Northland Power Solar projects.

In his new role as Alltrade’s Director of Construction, Gibson is committed to excellence in project delivery.  “It is truly a pleasure to be once again working with Jack,” said Bob Ritzmann, President of Alltrade. “When I started my first job out of high school, it was Jack who signed me up as a new electrical apprentice at Nicholls Radtke, which eventually became Aecon. We worked together for almost 15 years before I made an employer change. We are excited to welcome Jack to the Alltrade team.”
