Leigh Smith

Sr. Project Manager | Principal Shareholder

Leigh Smith has the reputation of owning his projects one hundred percent and not letting anything prevent their success. He believes that successful projects start with clear objectives, good communication between all parties, and a collaborative approach between all stakeholders.

In Leigh’s 35-year career, he has worked as a corporate engineer, engineering consultant, plant engineer, plant manager, and construction manager.  Because of his 25-year tenure at ITAC and depth of experience, he views problems from multiple perspectives, expertly analyzing and solving problems with innovative solutions. He has broad industrial experience in wood pellets, pulp and paper, forest products, fibers and plastics, chemical process, tobacco, and pharmaceutical industries.

When Leigh is not solving problems at work, he is at home causing problems for his wife and four children.
