About Terry

For over 30 years, I have been a public manager and an innovative leader in Calgary’s municipal government and Alberta hospitals plus a front-line volunteer in and around Calgary. For the past 18 years, I have been a senior manager at The City of Calgary in the areas of:

  • infrastructure asset management and investment planning;
  • corporate business planning and budgeting;
  • property assessment / taxation; and,
  • information and technology management.

Through these years at The City, I have worked with four (4) different Mayors, City Council and the City’s Administrative Leadership Team on a variety of Council and Corporate initiatives including

  • the conversion to market value assessment standard in 1999,
  • corporate re-organizations in 2000,
  • the divestiture of our electrical utility ‘ENMAX’ until Council withdrew this intention in 2001,
  • 3 year business plans and budgets in 2006-2008, 2009-2011, and 2012-2014,
  • the development of the CalgaryInfrastructure.ca website in 2008 (which provides transparency to major capital construction projects),
  • chair of the Municipal Names Committee in 2012, and
  • other initiatives.

My initial career was a hospital management analyst for the Calgary General Hospital, the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre, and the Greater Vancouver Regional Hospital District collectively.

As a volunteer, I am a Director-at-Large at the Edgemont Community Association and Program Chair of the Edgemont@35 anniversary celebration (September 2013) for over 600 attendees. I was also a frontline 2013 flood volunteer for a variety of groups (e.g. Calgary Drop-In Centre, Chinatown Clean Up, Beltline Clean Up, etc.) through June and July.

Academically, my post-secondary achievements include a Diploma of Technology – Operations Management from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), a Certificate in Health Care Administration from the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon), a Masters Certificate in Project Management from York University (Schulich School of Business – Executive Education Centre via University of Lethbridge), and a Masters Certificate in Municipal Management from York University (Schulich School of Business – Executive Education Centre).
