SLR is delighted to welcome Sandra Thompson to Canada’s Advisory Services Team. Sandra (Sandy) will take the role of Advisory Services Operations Manager and will have oversight of the group across Canada where she will focus on transactional consulting for our existing clients as well as continuing to build our due diligence portfolio.
Sandy arrives at SLR with over 15 years’ experience in the environmental consulting business working with some of North America’s largest companies providing critical advice for mergers and acquisitions. She brings with her an extensive track record of developing tailored environmental due diligence programs that she has designed to help limit liability exposure for her clients. Like SLR, Sandy’s clients broadly span sectors such as energy, mining, finance, and manufacturing. Over her career, Sandy has accumulated a wealth of expertise in business and client relationship development as well as successfully practicing in the environmental services field.
Richard Johnson, SLR Canada COO expressed delight and noted, “We are focused on expanding SLR’s brand to include more consultation in the Advisory space and the addition of Sandra to our team will be a key factor in propelling us forward in this area. I’m positive our clients will immediately notice the impact that Sandra can and will bring to their business.”
Looking forward to the opportunity to work with SLR, Sandy said, “I joined SLR because of the culture and the people, in addition to the technical excellence. I look forward to getting to know as many of the SLR team across Canada and worldwide as we support our clients’ needs. I am excited about the growth plans at SLR and being a part of our continued success.”
Sandy will join SLR in the Markham Office, but will be permanently based in SLR’s new downtown Toronto Office. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, at King and Yonge, SLR’s expansion allows the firm to build a closer relationship with its many clients who also have offices in the downtown core.
“The time is right for us to open this new office,” said Richard, “The doors we’ve opened with our team in the Markham office have given us a strong foothold with our Toronto-based clientele with operations stretching nationally and internationally. Having the downtown location available to us will allow us to build on the solid reputation already established and will mean that we can be even more responsive to our clients’ needs.”
SLR’s Toronto Office opens November 2016.
