ASET Spring 2020 - 32


Lloyd Linkiewich, R.E.T., PMP

Lloyd Linkiewich was born in Edmonton, and grew up in
Vegreville, Alta., before moving back to the city. He's been
captivated with everything electronic from his teenage
years, taking electronics classes and working for an electrician in high school. 
Lloyd graduated from NAIT in 1981. He took the electronics engineering technologist program, with an option in telecommunications. As soon as he'd stepped outside the doors of NAIT,
Lloyd landed himself a job with Telus precursor Ed Tel. In his
29 years with the company, he spent 15 years in outside plant
design before moving up to project and program management. 
While holding these positions, Lloyd received ASET certification as a C.E.T. and R.E.T. He eventually became a professional licensee in engineering (P.L.(Eng.)) with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta
(APEGA). On top of all these licenses, he added a PMP
certification. While at Telus, Lloyd began giving back to his
profession when he started as an auditor with the R.E.T. joint
registration board.
From the moment he started volunteering, Lloyd hasn't
stopped. At ASET, he has chaired for the inaugural P.Tech.
and practice review boards. He's also served as a sitting
member for the senior technology committee, and currently
holds an auditor position with TAC. 
With a rich history of both membership and volunteerism with
ASET, Lloyd wants to continue contributing to the association
as a Councillor. Over 39 years he's fostered an aptitude for
leadership. He plans to use this skill to benefit the profession
and the association's membership. Never one to back down
from a challenge, Lloyd is outspoken on contentious issues.
He's also a stickler for the right solution, and always takes the
time to find the right answer through rigorous research. 


Lloyd's specific goals if elected will be to work with government and industry leaders across Alberta to help the province
keep up with the rest of Canada in technological progress. 
"The combination of Alberta's recession and government
cutbacks have contributed to a regression in Alberta's potential to lead the country in technical advances," Lloyd
says. "As we transition from an energy-based history to a
greener future, we must continue to look at new options like
transportation, artificial intelligence and less reliance on
fossil fuels for jobs."
Lloyd knows the influence ASET can use to bring about
these important transitions. "We as the ASET team must
get behind the drive to bolster the talented individuals that
we have in this province to become the Canadian leaders in
technological advancements," Lloyd holds. 
"With these challenges taken into consideration, ASET must
re-ignite Alberta's passion for leading Canada's innovation
in technology."
Besides an illustrious career as a technologist, Lloyd took
his other passion for photography and ran an award-winning
photography business with his wife for 17 years. When Lloyd
left Telus in 2010, he opened a cupcake bakery with his wife.
It wasn't long before telecommunications called him back, and
Lloyd returned to Telus. He's worked at four different telecom
companies in the time since, including his current employer
Aecon. Since returning to the field, Lloyd's roles have varied
from project management to vice president of operations. 
Lloyd has been married to his wife Tracy for 36 years. They
have two beautiful daughters, both in their twenties. The
couple still continue their passion for photography, cruising and their love of Siamese cats. Lloyd is a certified drone
pilot. He tries to get as much flying time in as he can.
