Jacobs: Challenging today.
Reinventing tomorrow.


Steve Wyton, is Manager, Asset Management Planning, Capital Priorities & Investment, The City of Calgary. He really doesn’t have much experience – kidding – he has been working for more than 30 years in asset management for Calgary. First, he worked for Calgary Housing Company and then for the City itself. His current position is only 11 months old and resulted from an increased awareness of how asset management can solve problems for citizens and organizations in Calgary. Mr. Wyton will be discussing that increased awareness and how it shapes Calgary’s clear understanding of how asset management improves mission outcomes. Register at this link.
