Claiming to be “North America’s most diversified construction company,” the Ledcor Group completed work this fall on the Enbridge Centre, the first new office tower built in Edmonton’s financial district in 20 years. Ledcor’s operations now sprawl from construction to energy projects to a pair of regional airlines. While the company was founded by their father in 1947, Dave has led it as chairman and CEO since 1980. Cliff, meanwhile, operates a successful group of vineyards in California.
