MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — EllisDon has appointed Clare Ashbee as its new vice-president of sustainable building solutions.
Ashbee has been with EllisDon for just over a year, working with the capital and international teams.
She has a background in consulting, structured financing and banking gained from international firms including Investec Bank in Toronto as well as PricewaterhouseCoopers in London, England, states a release issued by EllisDon.
She also has experience originating and closing large scale energy, transportation, waste and social infrastructure projects.
Ashbee brings a wealth of international development experience having lived and worked in four continents and held positions at the Aga Khan Foundation and the African Development Bank.
