Integral Group Announces National Leadership Team in Canada


Integral Group is pleased to announce Jason Nelson in his new role as Regional Director, Alberta + Ontario.  Previously, Jason oversaw the Alberta practice as Regional Director, while continuing to foster strong relationships with institutional and aviation clients in British Columbia.

In his new role, Jason will continue to partner with Stuart Hood, Regional Director, British Columbia working together to enhance the client experience across all of Canada. Clients in all provinces will continue to be supported by this new leadership structure with greater access to expertise nationally and globally.

“I am excited to see the Canadian business come together in a more purposeful way,” CEO William Overturf noted.  “Jason and Stuart have a long history of successful collaboration within the BC market and beyond. This partnership coupled with Jason’s proven track record in directing our Alberta presence and the strength of our Toronto office all combined in leading us in this direction.

Our goal is to further strengthen our overall Canadian business, leveraging relationships and talent even more broadly from coast to coast. We are fortunate to have great talent and great people throughout our five offices in Canada. I believe that these changes will give us even more of a chance to grow and continue to be a Deep Green design and consulting engineering powerhouse throughout Canada.”
