About the Presenter

Before joining the Canadian Wood Council as a Technical Manager for Ontario Wood WORKS! in 2006, Max accumulated 12 years of industry experience and technical expertise in the engineered wood products (EWP) sector.  Working first as an engineering associate producing shop drawings and engineered calculations, he later moved into a technical sales role creating primary demand for EWPs in the Industrial-Commercial-Institutional sector.  For the past 11 years with Wood WORKS!, Max has used his knowledge, experience and industry connections to assist architects, engineers and municipalities incorporate more wood into non-residential buildings. Max is also continuing his research into wood use in low-rise commercial buildings and vehicular bridges.
