Specific Measures of Success:

  1. TEAMWORK – Must be able to transition into new role in a keen and aware fashion fostering honest and straightforward respect from all stakeholders, co-workers and team- We are not looking for a know-it-all person for this position or any position for that matter – each company has subtleties that make their delivery model unique in its offering. While we would expect that any applicant(s) experience will bring fresh ideas, new ways of doing things and most importantly a can-do attitude. We are not looking for a change agent in this role.
  2. ORGANIZATION / PLANNING – Integrate with a small team and work with all peer-groups to ensure seamless transition of job required tasks in an efficient and mindful fashion. Again, as echoed above bring a fresh thought pattern(s) to what we do is more than welcome if there is respect shown for how we have found success for 50 years.
  3. SELF – AWARENESS – INTERGITY – Ensure that honesty and integrity in what they do is in the forefront. As a team we will always make mistakes – how we deal with these mistakes are what will always separate us from others. The chosen candidate will have a high-bar for self-reliance and be accountable for their day to day actions. They will be given some very real responsibility and being accountable to all is paramount. As a senior manager I will never be far away for guidance and support as long as the applicant knows when to ask for mentorship. The self-reflection or ‘Know what you don’t Know’ statement comes to mind and will serve the successful the candidate well in a very fast paced environment.
  4. ORGANIZATION – PLANNING- The successful applicant will understand that we have a very diverse development model and that ‘one size does not fit all’ approach will be problematic if this approach is taken. Each and every development we undertake will challenge the core or basic skillset and build new skills for all involved. Candidate must be able to transition well between differing delivery models and daily tasks. The successful candidate will be a strong self-starter and will possess a keen ability to successfully juggle multiple balls in the air at all times.
  5. CONCEPTUAL ABILITY – The applicant will possess a keen sense of 3D in a 2D discussion. The ability to visualize and conceptualize what a building – development may look like by verbal description. Everything in this role is conceptualize – create – capitalize – manage to success. Or in very simple terms we are creating market product offerings – promoted by our CORE VALUES – and realized by a very dedicated team from start to finish.
