Sanj Perera - Dir., Project Development & Construction, Toronto Blue Jays, Canada

Sanj Perera

Sanj Perera is the Director, Project Development and Construction Management for the Toronto Blue Jays. In his current role, he oversees all major capital projects, from inception to completion at Rogers Centre. Over the last two years, Sanj has led the execution of the $400 million (CAD) multi-year Rogers Centre renovation, starting from early stages of feasibility study through to opening two project phases to fans. Working under incredibly tight offseason timelines of less than six month, the project team completed all major milestones on time. The final projects are near completion as the team prepares to open three new premium clubs, connected to the best seats in the ballpark, this summer.

The multi-year renovation reimagined Rogers Centre from a multi-purpose stadium to a modern ballpark, overhauling the fan and player experience. The Blue Jays are Canada’s lone Major League Baseball team and welcomed more than 3 million fans to the ballpark during the 2023 season. Prior to joining the Toronto Blue Jays, Sanj spent 10 years in the oil and gas industry as a consultant for a boutique firm, focused on project development and execution, as well as commercial profit and loss. The first 15 years of Sanj’s career were spent in land development, condominium and resort real estate development in British Columbia and Calgary before he started his own small company building luxury single family residences.

Sanj completed his undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Calgary, where he studied Civil Engineering, and earned his Executive MBA from the Haskayne School of Business.
