A Legacy of Excellence


Westmar Advisors can trace its lineage back to the former Westmar Consultants Inc. (pictured above, circa 2003). The original Westmar Consultants was founded in the early 1980s by Stanley Cowdell and over the course of three decades grew to be a well recognized and highly respected consulting engineering firm headquartered in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. At its peak, and before its acquisition by a large public corporation, Westmar Consultants employed over 300 people across multiple offices in the Pacific NorthWest, stretching from Northern BC through to Oregon in the USA.

Shortly after managing the sale of Westmar Consultants Stanley Cowdell retired from a full time-role as a senior executive. In 2011 he began to lay the foundation of a new boutique advisory company in order to provide expert project management and execution support to various industrial and commercial clients and their project teams. As the demand for premium advisory services continued to increase, an opportunity to engage proven professionals that were either part of the original Westmar company or aligned to the Westmar ethos emerged and Westmar Advisors was formed.

Westmar Advisors builds upon over 40 years of experience in all aspects of project planning, design, contracting strategies, execution and control. We are proud to offer our evolved suite of advisory services in the spirit of the original Westmar, with a foundation based on the value of empowering people to reach their goals.

"The opportunity to do the right thing for our clients, peers, and people is a noble enterprise. Westmar Advisors continues a tradition of excellence and client-focused professional services founded on a philosophy of empowering people. We are proud of what Westmar represents."
Stanley Cowdell, Founder and Executive Director
