Don’s experience in property development can be traced back to 1984, during his time with Marathon Realty Corp., then with PCI Realty Ltd. As a successful information technology entrepreneur, Don steadily built up corporate business and real estate experience, soon playing a central role in all facets of several multi-million dollar property developments in British Columbia, mostly in the retirement living and seniors housing real estate sector. The installation of smart systems in the developments he worked on raised automation to levels not yet seen in senior’s healthcare. In particular, a multi-serial port computer that sent important messages directly to key staff around ongoing issues like fire alarms, nurse calls, lighting, heating, ventilation, was revolutionary, streamlining how retirement homes operated from a communications perspective. With an expansive knowledge of property development – from sourcing and vetting acquisition opportunities, through overseeing construction, with a particular eye set on system integration, especially on the IT side, then on to marketing and sales – Don’s expertise in tandem with the Overture Development Inc. team means taking the best from past builds and applying those lessons to Overture projects, managing everyone involved, leading through every step of the process to successful completion.
