ABB Canada Implements Western Canada Organizational ChangesJohn Sencich, Lead Division Manager and Executive Vice President, Electrification Products - ABB Canada, has announced the following organizational changes in Thomas & Betts Canada's Western sales region.

Len Skoreyko, Regional Manager for Alberta (left in photo), will retire on February 28 after 40 years of service to Thomas & Betts/ABB. Len has led the Alberta team for many years and has been instrumental in the success of this key region in Canada. He is a well-known figure in the Alberta electrical industry, dedicated to his customers, channel partners and employees.

Rob Ruys (right) has assumed the role of Regional Manager for the Western region effective January 1. Rob joined Thomas & Betts in 1988 and has occupied roles of increasing responsibility throughout his tenure, most recently as Regional Manager for British Columbia and the Mid-West (Manitoba and Saskatchewan). Rob has had experience throughout Western Canada having been based in Saskatoon, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.

Moving forward, the Western sales region will be restructured to combine the BC/Mid-West and Alberta regions. As part of the restructuring of Western Canada as one region with reporting districts, Jonathan Clarke has been appointed District Manager, Alberta, and Ron Brako, District Manager. Both will report to Rob Ruys.

Value of Building Permits - DecemberThe total value of building permits issued by Canadian municipalities increased 7.4% to $8.7 billion in December. Increases were reported in five provinces, led by Ontario (+10.5% to $3.4 billion) and Quebec (+15.8% to $2.2 billion). For 2019 overall, municipalities issued $102.4 billion worth of permits, up 2.6% compared with 2018.

The total value of permits for multi-family dwellings was up 15.9% to $2.9 billion in December, mostly due to large projects in the census metropolitan areas (CMAs) of Montreal and Vancouver.
