Alterra is a developer group that has been working in the GTA for the last 40 years and aims to shape the aesthetic for entire districts. They must follow an important path if they hope to accomplish this goal. They manage their own team and take an outside-in approach to their work. This philosophy is integral to every level of their development.
They are led by their president and CEO Robert Cooper. Robert originally accepted a job with them with the expectation that it was going to be a short term solution. Fast forward 27 years, and Robert is now at the helm of the entire company, and for good reason. Among other notable achievements, Robert is the youngest person to ever be awarded the prestigious Home Builders Association Lifetime Achievement Award.
