Kenny MacEwen is vice president, projects of Technical Management Group (TMG) Inc. The Toronto-based technical services company is focused on augmenting owner’s teams and providing consulting services to mining executives engaged in growing or enhancing their enterprise through capital project delivery. While he is also responsible for corporate development and strategy, his passion is on providing the best delivery possible to their clients.
As a registered professional engineer, who has spent his entire 15-year career in project development, focused on mineral processing plants and surface infrastructure in the mining sector, Kenny recently joined TMG. Prior to this, he had progressively more senior roles with New Gold Inc. on the Rainy River Project in northwestern Ontario and with Centerra Gold Inc., where he was responsible for the design and development of a global portfolio of projects worth $1.6 billion USD within the corporate project management office. Having worked both in consulting and on various owners’ teams, he understands each parties’ risk drivers, and this allows him to create alternate execution approaches and development strategies to maximize the potential benefit to project stakeholders.
Kenny’s vision is to provide a unique service offering to help clients in the areas of project planning, strategic oversight, and execution support. He and his team provide full-service project management, project controls, risk management, project monitoring, and communications to ensure that all stakeholders are aligned on the execution objectives. They also look to partner with other consultants on specific mandates to achieve best-for-project objectives.
“In my past, working on the owner’s team, I’ve never really focused on the names of the companies that I’ve hired; I much prefer assembling a team of strong consultants I know can get the job done, and working with them on delivery per the project vision” he shares. “That’s the mentality I’ve brought with me to building the team at TMG. I always look to establish a team-based culture first, and this allows for the successful development of challenging global mining projects while meeting all necessary investment criteria.”
