PEO Council 2017-2018

Marilyn Spink, P.Eng.
Vice President (appointed)

Marilyn Spink’s 30-year engineering career began in northern Ontario’s mining and pulp and paper industries and then moved to steelmaking operations in both the US and Canada. After executing capital projects with Dofasco, she moved into the consulting engineering EPCM world, working on large, complex mining and minerals projects around the world. At Hatch, SNC-Lavalin, Wardrop (now Tetra Tech) and Golder Associates, as a multi-discipline engineering manager and a process engineer at heart, she led and supported teams of professional engineers and designers. She is now mentoring engineers and project managers with Isherwood Geostructural Engineers. Giving back to the engineering profession is also important to Spink via her appointment as a lieutenant governor-appointed councillor to PEO and by contributing to several committees and task forces. She has been a licensed professional engineer (PEO) since 1995, is a member of the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) since 2000, the year OSPE was created, and a long-time member of several mining industry associations. Her long-term goals are to build board/directorship experience to feed her strong interest in corporate governance and to ensure the voice of engineering is heard at the boardroom table. Spink is married to Jamie Gerson, also a professional engineer, who is extremely supportive of all her interests and a wonderful father to their three boys.
