This month we are shining our employee spotlight feature on Ken Dale, the Vice President of Commercial Construction. For the past 17 years Ken has grown with the company, and has humbly taken on this role. Let’s look into how his career has grown since joining the Bachly team.
When starting back in 2004, Ken joined the team as a junior project manager. Through hard work, Ken has developed and proven his ability where he was then promoted to a project manager. This is where he oversaw all important aspects of the building process from planning and budgeting to execution and final delivery. In this role, Ken worked closely with contractors and architects to establish project timelines and costs.
Fast forward to present day and Ken is operating as our VP for Commercial Construction. As the vice president, Ken has a lot of responsibilities to ensure our Commercial Division is operating smooth and efficiently. From overseeing all commercial projects; whether he is managing the project or assisting our talented project managers, Ken is involved and informed on every project on the go. Ken continuously builds and maintains relationships with clients to secure future work. From staffing the department and conducting performance reviews to estimating and tendering new projects, Ken’s daily operations keep his hands tied.
Life at Bachly
Ken’s role offers him a lot of freedom to make decisions and he enjoys being accountable for those decisions. He also enjoys working alongside our talented staff on a day-to-day basis. With the diversity of his role, he faces some challenges including staffing the commercial division. Our business needs constantly change and finding good, qualified people is the greatest challenge of the position.
Ken has completed many projects since 2004, but one of his proudest is the Burlington Mall renovation, addition and re-demise project for our client RioCan. The team provided the utmost quality of products and maintained daily operations and public safety during the long and challenging process.
“Whether it’s working with our dedicated staff, collaborating with professional trades or servicing our valued clients, Bachly always puts forth integrity, professionalism and loyalty.” – Ken Dale, Vice President of Commercial Construction.
