EllisDon Corporation has appointed two new directors to its board: Dr. Gina Parvaneh Cody, Ph.D., professional engineer, corporate executive, and principal; and Saad Rafi, an infrastructure, transportation, energy, and public safety leader. Brendan Calder is retiring from the board.

“I am thrilled to welcome Gina and Saad to EllisDon’s Board of Directors,” EllisDon board chair Gerald Slemko said in a statement.

“These two appointments are the result of an exhaustive process to ensure that we zeroed in on the precise skills, diverse views, and experience required to complement EllisDon’s strategy and growth. I would also like to genuinely thank Brendan for his valuable time and contribution paid to the Board.”

Cody holds a Masters and Doctorate in Building Engineering from Concordia University and has over 30 years of professional practice in the private sector as a professional engineer and an executive of an engineering firm. 

Rafi has worked in the public and private sectors, including several Deputy Minister roles in the Ontario government, including Transportation, Energy and Infrastructure, and Health. He was the CEO of the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games in Toronto in 2015.
