Terry Bergan, P.Eng., joined the SaskPower Board of Directors in 2018. He recently retired as the President & CEO of International Road Dynamics (IRD), a world leader in highway traffic management products and systems, operating internationally in the Intelligent Transportation Systems industry.
Mr. Bergan graduated from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan in 1979. After graduating, he worked at a local engineering company as a design engineer and construction manager, and part time at IRD. In 1986, he joined his father, Dr. AT Bergan who founded IRD in 1980, and his sister Sharon Parker. Together, they formed a venture capital company that invested in IRD.

Over his career with IRD, Mr. Bergan led operations with significant research and development resulting in over 30 patents. He has participated in many industry organizations and built a successful leadership team that contributed to the company’s success, with operations worldwide, commutative sales since 1980 exceeding $1B in over 37 countries and with significant Saskatchewan suppliers and partner.
Mr. Bergan is a member of several industry organizations, including the Saskatchewan Centre of Excellence for Transportation and Infrastructure, Transportation Association of Canada, Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, Engineering Institute of Canada, Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan, the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, North Saskatoon Business Association and Institute of Corporate Directors, to name just a few.
