After joining Cormode & Dickson Construction (1983) Ltd in 1984, Ben rose through the ranks to his current leadership role as President and sole owner. He is involved with the day-to-day operations and heads up a Management Team at an executive level. Cormode & Dickson is a general contractor in commercial and industrial construction throughout Western Canada.
As a graduate of the Construction Engineering Program at NAIT and holding a Journeyman Carpenter’s ticket, Ben developed a well-rounded experience base.
He has grown the company to multi-office locations throughout Alberta, B.C., Saskatchewan and the Yukon, as well as an independent Industrial Division that services the upstream oil and gas sector. He encourages growth and learning and promotes the concept "to be the best you can be" through continuous improvement at all levels.
Cormode & Dickson’s mission is "to be the most trusted contractor of choice defined by a corporate culture where excellence matters" and Ben is a strong proponent of technology in the workplace and strives to ensure the company maintains a "leading edge" in the use and implementation of technology.
As a dedicated husband and father of four girls, he has come to understand the wisdom of practising "compassion and compromise", while continuing to instil the personal core value of being a "Leader in Your Own Life".
