Cory Gross is an event project team manager having successfully delivered facility and temporary overlay projects for international, national and regional multi-sport organizations.
Beginning in 1994, Cory developed the Capital Construction Project plan for the 1997 Canada Summer Games. The project constructed an athletics track, tennis courts, a waterski facility, a softball complex, artificial field hockey turf, and natural turf soccer / rugby pitches. These facility legacies fit into the City of Brandon master recreational planning post games.
Most recently as Senior Manager Overlay Design and Delivery with the Toronto 2015 Pan /Para Pan American Games he was responsible for the development, mentoring, and management of a project team of Architects, Energy Managers, CAD Specialists, Commodity Suppliers, and Site Managers. One of the most satisfying aspects of this project, aside from delivering 10 Competition and Non-Competition venues on time and with significant budget efficiencies, was enjoying the success and accomplishments of the North Zone Overlay Team.
Outside of the event industry, Cory developed an innovative award winning energy efficiency program (BEEP) for the Brandon Neighbourhood Development Corporation by leveraging funding strategic relationships and funding commitments from Federal, Provincial, and Municipal levels of government. Initiated in 2008, this program continues to pay dividends to the community.
Having lived in Winnipeg Manitoba. Edmonton Alberta, Salt Lake City Utah, Fort McMurray Alberta, Vancouver British Columbia, London United Kingdom and Toronto Ontario over the last 15 years, Cory currently resides in his hometown of Brandon, Manitoba, Canada.
