Development Manager, SkyDev
Lorraine is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the development process for SkyDev projects, including design development, background studies, regulatory approvals, land acquisition applications, and building permit applications. In her role, she manages multiple project consulting teams, and liaises with Skyline’s internal development team and service companies, as well as external consultants including lenders, attorneys, architects, surveyors, engineers, and contractors.
Lorraine has been in the real estate development industry since 1998. She began her career at the City of Brampton in Land Planning, and in 2010 she shifted to the private sector with the role of Land Development Coordinator for Eastforest Homes (now Activa) in Waterloo, ON.
Previous to Skyline, Lorraine was Manager of Land Development at Losani Homes in Stoney Creek, ON, during which time she worked on a number of projects that awarded the company dozens of accolades from organizations such as Canada’s Best Managed Companies, the National Homebuilders’ Association, the Consumer Choice Awards, and the Ontario Business Achievement Awards. Her experience in managing the coordination and development of new real estate projects spans many building types including residential, industrial, retail, and mixed-use.
Lorraine’s managerial approach places importance on mentorship and team collaboration. She views the successes and achievements of her reports as the most significant demonstration of her own success, and she believes that when it comes to respect, there are no titles or positions.
Lorraine holds a diploma in Municipal Law and Municipal Administration from the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks, and Treasurers of Ontario (AMCTO), as well as a certificate in Project Management from the University of Waterloo. She is also an executive council member at the Royal Canadian Legion in the roles of Public Relations Officer, Youth Education Chairman, and Past President.
