David Wilkes has been appointed president and CEO of the 1,450-member
Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) of Greater Toronto after what BILD calls “an extensive search.”
Wilkes was the former senior vice-president of government relations at the Retail Council of Canada.
“This is an exciting time for BILD and I am delighted to be taking on the role of president and CEO,” said Wilkes. “I’m ready for the challenge of leading an industry that employs over 197,000 people and brings $30 billion in investment value to the Greater Toronto Area.”
“This is the culmination of an extensive search process,” said Darren Steedman, chair of the BILD board of directors. “We are pleased to have found an individual with the background, skills and leadership to take BILD to new levels of advocacy.”
