Leadership and Development


For the 13th year, EllisDon appears on the Aon Hewitt’s list of Canada’s 50 Best Employers – this time second on the list. Szczepanowski is responsible for actively working to ensure that the culture of EllisDon is maintained and incorporated in everything the company endeavours to do. She plays a key role in helping to develop current and future leaders, and has the overall responsibility for EllisDon’s HR practice.

Equipped with a non-traditional human resources background, she spent over 20 years on the “business” side before assuming her current role. With an extensive background in strategic and business planning, operations, people leadership, process and change management, Szczepanowski’s background and influencing skills have enabled her to be a strong business partner and leader.

Since joining the company almost nine years ago, she has significantly improved the company’s focus on employee development, risk management (from a people perspective), succession planning, career paths, and overall compensation structure.
