Welcoming some new OPEN team members… and also Dave!

OPEN Technologies is welcoming some new additions to our team at the end of this month! 

This includes OPEN co-founder, Dave Ramslie, who will be joining us full time as Chief Operating Officer on March 28th. Dave’s work at OPEN will be to support Donovan and the rest of the team in product management and development, as well as having core accountability for leading our core business development work and custom solutions portfolio. 

With nearly two decades of experience in the green building industry – most recently almost five years as Vice President of Innovation and Sustainability at Concert Properties – Dave is a leader on urban sustainability issues and policy, in particular on the role of benchmarking and disclosure. His expertise has been instrumental to the success of our GRID benchmarking software platform, and its expressions in regional initiatives in Calgary, Nova Scotia, and – of course – Building Benchmark BC. His experience as a policy maker at the City of Vancouver before building a green building policy practice at Integral has helped him to build relationships in jurisdictions across the United States and Canada.


We are also thrilled to introduce our new Senior Developer – Custom Projects, Gaurav Vijayvargia. Gaurav’s work will be mostly centred around shaping and developing our Custom Projects portfolio. 

Gaurav is a highly skilled developer, bringing over 6 of expertise in full stack development. He has been working at a senior level since 2015, holds a Master of Technology in computer science from the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay, and a Bachelor of Engineering in computer science from the University of Pune. Gaurav is fascinated by unknown and unexplored possibilities, which fuels his lifelong passion for programming.
