Matthew Allen, M.Eng., P.Eng.

Matthew Allen is a unique combination of entrepreneur, engineer, and executive — a powerful blend that has driven his success throughout his career. With over 20 years of experience as an executive business leader and expert environmental health and safety professional, he currently serves as president of the Americas for SAI Global providing integrated risk management solutions in assurance and learning, overseeing a combined staff of 500 and directing the regional growth strategy and overall operations. A self-declared student of Good to Great, he believes in leading from the front to build accountable team cultures with a data-driven and people-centric management style.

Matthew is natural “leader of leaders” with an extensive recruiting and coaching track record. With his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for talent development in the science and engineering space, he started his own successful technical and executive search business. He is also a licensed professional chemical and materials engineer in Canada (P.Eng.) and a certified health and safety consultant (CHSC) with extensive industrial and commercial experience in the areas of assurance, compliance, sustainability, and risk management.

Prior to joining SAI Global, he served in executive leadership roles for large corporations, including global VP of operations for a FTSE-traded TIC company, where he led 400 regulatory compliance and assurance experts across 15 countries. He also held positions of partner and practice lead at a forensic engineering firm, and progressive project and team management roles in the infrastructure consulting and environmental engineering sectors. Some might call him an industrious Renaissance man. Some might see him as a rare breed among leaders—a scientific thinker with the mind of a CEO. One thing is certain—Matthew is leading the way to drive growth and transformation across the industry.
