[Guelph, Ontario – May 1, 2022]
Skyline Group of Companies (Skyline) is pleased to announce that effective May 1, 2022, Andy Coutts has accepted the role of Vice President, Operations, Skyline Group of Companies.
As Skyline’s very first employee, Andy has been with the company since 2001, when he was hired by Co-Founders Jason Castellan, Martin Castellan, and R. Jason Ashdown to manage approximately 40 student rental houses, along with a handful of Skyline’s first apartment properties.
In his two decades of service, Andy has held several roles with different departments within Skyline, allowing him to gain a thorough awareness and extensive understanding of the practices, policies, and procedures of the company and the industry.
Most recently, Andy led the capital expenditures (CAPEX) team in managing all projects related to large-scale building renovations and retrofits across Skyline’s real estate investment portfolios.
In his new role, Andy oversees all strategy implementation across Skyline, including the strategic planning and direction of operational policies, objectives, and initiatives to ensure Skyline’s future growth and profitability.
His goal will be to facilitate and maintain alignment among all parts of Skyline to ensure our corporate objectives are met.
“Back in 2001, Andy brought a valuable connection with trades to Skyline as well as first-hand experience evaluating the proper execution of capital projects on our properties,” said Jason Castellan, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Skyline Group of Companies.
“The value he brings to Skyline has only continued to increase each year Andy has been with us, growing his role from Property Manager to Vice President of CAPEX and now overseeing operations for the entire Skyline Group. He shares our values and principles, and has grown with Skyline as we grew, so his new role of Vice President, Operations is a natural fit and very well-deserved. On behalf of the Skyline leadership team, I want to congratulate Andy on his new role, and we’re looking forward to working with him on further accelerating Skyline’s successes.”
