Released on October 22, 2013

Minister responsible for SaskBuilds Don McMorris announced that interim-President and CEO Brian Manning will be replaced by incoming permanent President and CEO, Rupen Pandya effective October 28.

“I want to thank Brian Manning for the important contribution he has made to the successful launch and development of SaskBuilds over the past year,” McMorris said.  “Our government is committed to supporting Saskatchewan’s rapid growth and created SaskBuilds to drive innovation in infrastructure financing, design and delivery and to explore opportunities for public-private partnerships.  Brian has been an important part of SaskBuilds’ success to date and I thank him for his dedication and service.”

Rupen Pandya was most recently Assistant Deputy Minister, Labour Market Development Division in the Ministry of the Economy where he supported the province’s growing economy by ensuring positive employment, training and immigration outcomes.  With almost 20 years dedicated to the Saskatchewan public service, Pandya brings an impressive track record of leadership in policy development and implementation across diverse fields including labour market, education, post-secondary education, housing, social services and intergovernmental affairs.

“I welcome Rupen to the SaskBuilds team,” McMorris said.  “SaskBuilds is engaged in several projects and will continue to be key for embedding innovation in our infrastructure investments.  Rupen’s experience working with a variety of government partners will be an excellent contribution to the team and I am looking forward to working with him.”

Pandya was raised in Saskatchewan and holds B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Regina.
