Celebrating 50 Years

During an evening celebration on October 9, 2015 in Edmonton, we honoured the career of Lynn Hanna, whose time at Bird has spanned five decades. Lynn joins two other members in the 50 Year Club — Richard Turchinetz and Don Eckstein. That evening Lynn celebrated with his fellow coworkers, friends and family, as well as 25 Year Club and 50 Year Club members.

In 1965, Lynn joined the company in our accounting division for the Edmonton office, performing payroll and accounts payable duties. In two short years, he was transferred to the construction division, beginning work as an estimator and project coordinator. In 1976, Lynn became a senior estimator and in 1981, he was appointed to chief estimator. In 1986, Lynn joined the Toronto district for two years as a senior estimator, returning to Edmonton in 1988 as a senior estimator to present day.

Please join us in congratulating Lynn and thanking him for a half a century of dedication to Bird.
