Donn began his career in the asphalt industry in the summer after his third year of Civil Engineering. He enjoyed his experience in asphalt that it influenced him to complete his thesis on asphalt and hot-in-place recycling. After graduation, his employer offered him a full-time position as a Lab Supervisor.
With his start in aggregate and asphalt quality control, Donn quickly progressed to asphalt research and product development, as well as, asphalt mix designs.
He was then given the opportunity to move into management by managing multiple asphalt plants in the GTA for a large construction and materials company.
Donn’s next challenge was to set up a joint-venture asphalt cement business for two large construction companies. Here he grew the business with terminal expansions, brand establishment, and customer relationships.
Prior to opening Corfinium Solutions Inc. in 2020, Donn obtained his MBA from Western University’s Ivey Executive MBA program to hone his skills further.
