Robin Petri

Vice President, Development

It's great to be part of an organization that works to build stronger communities through creative real estate projects.

Robin brings extensive municipal and private sector experience to Catalyst.

Over the last 15 years, Robin has had key roles in the creation of two of Vancouver’s most inspiring communities: Southeast False Creek, and the River District.

Robin began her work at the City of Vancouver in the Engineering Department, and then moved to the Project Office for Southeast False Creek in 2005, where she was responsible for leading design and construction of parks, public spaces, infrastructure, the heritage Salt Building, as well as liaison roles with various stakeholders. In 2010, Robin was hired as Director of Development at Wesgroup Properties to play a similar role at River District, where she was soon also working on large mixed-use buildings, facilitating development and building permit processes. She has a Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering.

When not at work, Robin can be found biking with her family along the seawall or in her community organizing school events, block parties and soccer teams.
