Jim McKay has rejoined HDR as managing director for the firm’s Canadian engineering practice.

McKay previously served as a vice president and Canadian resources group leader from 2010 to 2016. Most recently, he was the general manager of solid waste management for the City of Toronto where he led more than 1,100 employees ranging from frontline service providers to engineers, scientists, and construction and maintenance teams.

“My time at the City of Toronto taught me many things, including the types of pressures our clients face as they work to deliver the best possible services to citizens,” said McKay in a company release. “I’m looking forward to helping grow our overall Canadian presence and using what I learned from the client’s perspective.”

McKay is a strong advocate of the importance of culture in employee success and is well-known for his collaborative leadership style. He will be based in HDR’s Richmond Hill, Ont. office.
