Drumroll - New Senior Lead Western Services!

For Immediate Release

Ottawa, Ontario – June 12, 2018.  QUEST would like to welcome Julie Bunker as the new Senior Lead for Western Services.

Julie is an impactful and experienced project coordinator with over ten years of experience across multiple industries including power energy efficiency, transportation, and environmental services. 

Julie comes to QUEST from Stantec and has worked with utilities in the past to identify how the integration of renewable energy, coupled with smart grid technology, could evolve their services to adapt to the changing energy industry – including directly with NB Power on their Powershift Atlantic initiative.

With massive change underway and opportunities being uncovered in the energy ecosystem in Canada, Julie is poised to respond to help Smart Energy Communities succeed in the western and northern regions.

In addition to being an avid lover of the outdoors in terms of hiking, biking, and fishing, she's also excited to be working from home remotely, like the majority of the QUEST team, after giving in and deciding to get a black lab puppy for the family.
