Robin Petri, Vice President Development, brings both municipal and private sector experience to Catalyst. Over the last 15 years Robin has held key roles in the creation of two of Vancouver’s most inspiring communities: Southeast False Creek and River District.
With a Masters in Environmental Engineering, Robin started at the City of Vancouver in the Engineering Department and then moved to the Project Office for Southeast False Creek in 2005 – responsible for the 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. Soon Robin was also working on large mixed use buildings, facilitating development and building permit processes.
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.
