“Understanding a business’s operations is the foundation to build upon and determine the appropriate solution. It all begins with the awareness that we are all in the same business: the business of people.”

As a senior vice president at Plante Moran Cresa, Ivan helps advise business owners with their capital planning and implementation. His goals are to ensure project needs are met and the project completes on time and within the budget.

He has the technical expertise in construction, real estate, and architecture to manage relationships with general contractors, architects, construction companies, municipal authorities, and financial institutions involved in the project. Amplifying this technical expertise is his passion for client service, which focuses on providing genuine help and guidance, so clients are satisfied with the outcomes of their projects.

With over 25 years of experience, Ivan has been involved in diverse architectural and construction projects. His career began with his family’s construction business in Canada and progressed as he developed design and technical skills with several major architecture firms, most recently with IBI Group. At IBI, Ivan was associate principal of design and architecture, responsible for business development, operations, quality control, and management.
