We are proud to announce that Number TEN Associate Leslie Myers has been named Outstanding Woman in Construction of the Year by the Vancouver Island Construction Association.
This award recognizes a woman who has significantly and positively impacted the construction industry on Vancouver Island.
Leslie’s commitment to integrity, honesty, and quality are apparent in all that she does. She is a dedicated volunteer, mentor and leader always willing to share her time and expertise.
“She truly believes and shares that if anyone comes to work with a keen attitude to learn and demonstrates quality and integrity in the work they do, that they can be successful in the industry. Leslie knows that there isn’t anything that women can’t do and she demonstrates this belief daily,” says Colleen McConnell from the Construction Foundation of BC.
Leslie was nominated by Number TEN partner Barry Cosgrave. Ten years ago, Leslie joined Number TEN as junior designer. Since then, she has become both the leader of our Interior Design Studio, and an associate. Barry says, “She is tireless in her pursuit of knowledge and improving her professional skills, volunteering for industry committees and mentorship for Interior Design students. Her work ethic and people skills have allowed her to connect to people she works with both in the office and in particular clients, end users, contractors, subtrades and other professionals.”
We are lucky to have her strength, vision and entrepreneurial spirit on our team, and in the construction industry. Congratulations Leslie!
