Lisa's Construction Photo

Our Founder, Lisa Anna Palmer, is the proud daughter of Italian Immigrants. Her father, Corrado Cattelan, owned a cement finishing company called Plancher Joliette. Lisa loved to hop into her father’s old Ford truck and accompany him onto the work site from a very young age. There she would see her brother, cousins and uncle and other cement finishers work as a team to create high quality floors.

In addition, she has several renowned engineers in her family, and she’s worked at the Royal Canadian Mint, where she’s enjoyed and felt at home working in a manufacturing and R&D environment. Moreover, Lisa had the opportunity to coach many with STEM backgrounds (science, technology, engineering, math) to advance their careers and learn to take their leadership abilities to the next level.

As a result of her upbringing and her professional experiences, Lisa has special insight and an affinity for working with members of these trades and professions. Part of her vision is to honour her father’s memory and her family’s heritage, while she and her strategic allies contribute to the advancement of leadership in these very important industries and sectors.


"We cannot thank Lisa enough for all that we have learned during the Light Your Leadership Program and also seeing the growth that our management team has done - it is very inspiring. The learning plan is fantastic. We really appreciated the suggestions and recommendations that you made to the senior management team.”
