Rowley Mossop to Moderate ACEC Canada’s Panel on the Threat of Commoditization of Consulting Engineering

How can consulting engineering companies combat the downward pressure of fees and be the service provider of choice based on value, not price?

This year’s annual leadership symposium of the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies, Canada (ACEC) features a panel discussion on “Eluding the Threat of Commoditization”. In this panel, industry leaders will discuss the changed nature of clients and how consulting engineering companies compete for work. They will discuss approaches to avoid commoditization at the business and industry levels. This is an important topic for consulting engineering of all sizes who are threatened by lower capital budgets and increased competition.

Panelists include:

  • John Gamble, President & CEO, ACEC
  • Ryan Brain, President & CEO, WSP Canada
  • Guy Cormier, President & CEO, J.L. Richards & Associates Ltd.
  • Greg Herasymuik, Principal, President, Canada Region, Golder & Associates
