In his new role, Mr. Clarke’s experience in directing large-scale international mining projects will be applied to the numerous projects underway in this sector, and in the service of several of the world’s largest mining firms, who are, in turn, some of SNC-Lavalin’s long-standing clients. He will be based in Toronto.
Mr. Clarke holds a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Mining Engineering from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and is a member of the Ontario Mining Association, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, and Professional Engineers Ontario.
